  • Coffees of Coorparoo

    Generally we have a lot of mediocre (or worse) coffee shops in the area, but things are looking up.

    I put in a vote for BANG BANG tried today, which opened redently. I had a short mac. - quite chocolaty, with well balanced acid. I will be going back when I have more time. They use Blackstar beans, which Im not always a fan of, but they seem in good hands.

    Very friendly barista. All coffees I saw looked good, and were made with the requisite care and attention.  Bang Bang also have a small but interesting menu, and the decor has a bit of personality about it.

    Recommended.

    BANG BANG
    Address: 133 Kirkland Ave Coorparoo, corner of Old Cleveland Rd.

    Open 7 - 2 pm most days, may close at midday on sundays.

    Newly discovered but have not tried: Ave Cucina gets some good reviews. 16 Eva St. Coorparoo.

    Just opened, will probably try today: The Coffee Bean. Martha St. Camp Hill.

      Those markets were very badly organised from the outset. Many of the stall holders put a lot on the line for them...  I think the potential was massive.

        Tell me about it, Was good the first few weeks when they opened, Then stuff happened.

        The coffee guys that are still in that building at the front (on old Cleveland road) are Okay if youre wanting a decent coffee, Though they arent Brilliant, They are reasonably sensible about what a good coffee is like though, so theyre not TOO bad.

          Peered through the window of a not yet opened shop the other day... A Mirage Veloce, and pair of brand new Mazzers inside!

          Could be promising.

          Its on Cavendish Road next door to the car rental place on the corner of Old Cleveland Rd. Sign on the door said its to be called Bhabhas...

                  I definitely will, nobody has been in the shop when Ive walked past so far. We badly need good food and coffee in the area.

                      7am-2pm Monday to Friday and

                        I am really happy that I can get reasonably fresh beans from Merlo at Coorparoo, about 1 min drive from my house. I know some of you coffesnobs may not hold Merlo in high regard, I quite like their private blend. Having said that, is there any other roasting house/coffee shops that sell fresh beans around Coorparoo?

                          You're doing yourself a disservice if you don't try Uncle Joes...

                            I had been there, but they don't sell fresh bean? Well, they do have some pre packaged ones.

                              Last time I was there they sold freshly roasted beans?
