  • Coffee at Scarborough Beach, Perth ??

    I have an important decision to make; whether or not to pack my
    aeropress, home roast and grinder to go to Perth tomorrow for a
    conference, at the Rendevouz Observation City Hotel in
    Scarborough Beach.

    I would consider not doing that if there is worthwhile espresso
    either at, or within walking distance of, this hotel.

    Grendels coffee map shows nothing within cooee, a bad omen
    I suspect. Local insight appreciated! thanks

      Id take it anyway as an insurance policy which protects against loss of taste buds due to bad
      coffee ;D.

      As a wise person told me, and a rule I live by:
      Its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it 8-).

        Yes, the insurance policy is already packed

        I will nonetheless look around and report back if
        I have any luck ...

            Pack your own, nothing worth checking out around Ob City!! If you get into Perth there are a few worth checking out.

              Thanks all for the advice. My trusty aeropress turned out to be the
              most reliable source of half way decent coffee at SB

              I tried a couple of places. There is a Dome in the hotel itself. I asked
              for a double espresso pulled short ("like a ristretto"). Out came a
              capuccino cup half full. Oh well ...

              There is a restaurant called Zanders opposite, right at the end
              of SB Road. Used to be Villa Bianchi. Had dinner there once,
              pretty good. Tried an espresso tio finish, it was respectable.
              They had valved bags of their own coffee (Diamattina I think)
              which were nicely puffed up, so could be fresh, perhaps worth
              a try. No good for morning kickstart though.

              One of the conference exhibitors had the wit and wisdom to bring
              along a Vittoria-fuelled 2 group Faema, which attracted a lot of
              people to their stand, but unfortunately they forgot that the
              barista needs skills. I did persuade him to pull the shot before
              blonding at 10 seconds. Oh well again.

              I had a careful look while travelling in the bus along SB Road for
              crafty_butchers house but must have missed the sign of the snob
              on the chimney

              Did manage to get into Perth city one evening, but all the places I
              wanted to get to were closed. Better luck next time I hope.
              to get

                Yes hb,

                Its criminal what some people do with such fantastic equipment >..... Youd just like to leap over the counter and show em how to do it properly. But, I guess if the passion isnt there :-?, theres not a lot you can do,

                Cheers,
                Mal.

                  Most cafes around Perth serve food and their coffee is an afterthought, thankfully several new great coffee outlets have appearance with passionate coffee people running them...............
