  • Sydney coffee haunts

    Hi,

    Ill be in Sydney on the 17th to the 21st of June. Looking at visiting a few top notch espresso bars.

    If there is a similar thread, please point me in the right direction.

    Campos - Newtown
    Tobys Estate - Chippendale
    Mecca - CBD
    Mecca II - Circular Quay
    Single Origin - Surry Hills
    Oven - Cremorne
    Wine of The Bean - Thornleigh
    Grind - Cronulla

    If i think of any others ill add to the list.

        One to add to that list, especially if youre going Cremorne way - Is THE SOURCE in Mosman. Its one of my favs. They use St Alis (one of the only ones north of the border), have a 3 gp Sabre, and are super passionate about their coffee. Great atmosphere surrounded by LM posters etc.

                If you are in the city try Velluto Nero Shop 3/259 Clarence St (southern end, next to a bridal shop)

                www.vellutonero.com.au

                They had a write-up on the Sydney Morning Herald recently where they were praised for their espresso and cappuccino. They roast their beans in-store and have had gold medal(s) for their blend at the Easter Show.

                Best coffee Ive had in the CBD (not saying Ive tried most) but you wont be disappointed!

                  If you get a spare day, a cross-city trip to the sunny sutherland shire is well worth it.

                  Firstly, theres Kafenio for a shot of DiLorenzo coffee. I find it a bit on the bitter side, but its not bad. Food is pretty good.

                  But secondly, GRIND. So good. Its at the other end of the mall to kafenio, just up from South Cronulla beach. They run a different single origin every day. It basically rocks.

                    And just round the corner from Grind is Buzz Cafe, opposite the beach - they only do one blend, but IMHO make a better espresso than the previous two mentioned.

                      Hi DS

                      you should try home expresso at 107 Mount St in North Sydney which is on the same side of the harbour as Brookvale.

                      I have been to some of the others mentioned above and to my mind this cafe is making coffee to blow your mind. It really is one to watch.

                      Have a look at this link.

                        I just spent 3 days at Camperdown, Wife was at RPA for tests.
                        I looked at getting a shot at Campos but decided the wait was probably not worth it this time, It seemed like every man and his dog were there, back in mid july so ill try then. We ended up at Deus Cafe on Parramatta rd. Coffee was Di Lorenzo. I found it Excellent.
                        Only open 8-3, Nice Food as well. Probably spent $100.00 {$50 on Coffee}there in the three days They also sell Motorcycles next door [older style pimped out}

                          Should have gone around the corner on Carillon st to Cordial and had a good brekkie as well! The line at Campos is foolish - theres a reason for that though

                          Hope everything went well with your wife TEPIN.
