    Adelaide

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Im travelling again in February - to adelaide. I may have a little more time than I did in Sydney to get out and try the coffee so Ill take recommendations from any Snobs who know the city well!

    Ill most likely be staying in the CBD although no meeting venue has been announced yet. Im kinda hoping they have it at the sheraton because it is on a thursday and friday and I love those markets!

    Re: Adelaide

    I was there in Dec 2005 for a day. Only tried Cibo Rundle St and a cafe in Glen Elg (called Europa or similar). Cafe Europa did serve a decent short black and they had a couple of interesting SOs on offer (Cuban and another)

    - Cibo (especially the Rundle St branch)

    - Different Cups (08) 8410 6379 36A James Pl CBD 5000
    Waymouth St Just off King William St. 30 varieties of coffee

    - DoubleShot (08) 8232 8884 Shp 3/ 16 Wyatt St CBD 5000
    (I think also at 47B Morphett St)

    - Short Black (08) 8410 9390 87 Hindley St CBD 5000

    - The Perfect Cup in Currie St has had some umms after new management. The branch in the Central Market may still be OK.

    - Bean Bar is ok , across the markets

    - Lucias @ the western aisle of the markets for a Pellegrinis type experience :p
    (dont say I didnt warn ya)

    unsure of status...
    - "TheGreek" on Halifax Street
    - Doubleshot on Wyatt (good barista, uses Amanti beans)

    Re: Adelaide

    Lucias at the market is very good, I drink coffee there all the time. I can also recommend their food, good value for money this is their bruschetta, I took this pic with my phone so the quality is a bit iffy. The bruschetta and a Coffee cost about $10.00




    The Perfect cup at the market is good too. The new owner Craig is a nice guy and they have a large range of SOs.

    As an Adelaidean I can let you know of more in the CBD as they come to mind.

    Hazbean also knows of some good coffee places too, Send me a PM and I can let you know of more if you want. We can alo meet up if you would like for a coffeee if I am in town.

    Re: Adelaide

    The markets are fully open on Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays although Lucias and some of the other places are open everyday.

    The only day I am not available is the 24th as I have a herceptin treatment. I am sure I can catch up any other time. It would be nice to put a face to the posts.

    Re: Adelaide

    Well, Ill be there on the 7th for sure and Staying pretty much on Rundle Mall so any coffee places near there will get a visit from me as I wander.

    If I have the chance to go check out a roastery (maybe Rio or something like that) Ill give it a try.

    Re: Adelaide

    Try Simply Coffee in Kent town - about a twenty minute walk from Rundle Mall. Basically you just keep following Rundle mall, Rundle street, Rundle road through the park lands to get there.

    Monjava is a couple of streets over from Simply coffee, although I dont think they have relocated their roastery to the kent town premises yet.

    Rio is a bit (quite a bit) further away, in Norwood.

    That wouldnt be Rundle Park Lands would it?

    Imaginative lot.

    Why is it called Adelaide then instead of Rundleaide?

    Re: Adelaide

    Having been to Simply Coffee yesterday to meet up with Coretto I think that would be the best place for us to meet up. It is quiet and unobtrusive and the coffee is very nice with a good variety. I even picked up some Tiger Mountain yesterday to take home. They were delicious this morning with my breakfast.

    I dont know about hazbean but I can meet you on the 8th or the 9th.

    Re: Adelaide

    Id be keen to catch up there on the morning of the 8th - I have a 9 am start for the days sessions so bright and early would work for me - it will be a nice walk to start the day by the sound of things.

    Re: Adelaide

    Well, there was a meeting of coffeesnobs at the bright start of 730am today. Hazbean, Mrs Hazbean and myself met up with Grendal at Lucias in the Central Market for breakfast and coffee and had a wee chat.

    I took a couple pics with my phone that I will post later, as I am sure Grendel has some of us too!!!

    I need to go and have a wee nanna nap ::)

    Re: Adelaide

    Probably too late on this one, but make an effort to get to Simply Coffee on Rundle St in Kent Town. The 104 or 106 bus takes you along North Tce and its only a couple of blocks to Simply Coffee. Its an experience I can tell you; dozens of bean varieties, equipment, and the enormous roaster in the front of the shop. Its the sort of place you can sit and just absorb the atmosphere, not to mention theyre passionate about what they make! If youre latte drinker I highly recommend the Indian Elephant and Indian Tiger blends. Panama is another great one but a little milder.

    Yes, Greg, SC was definitely on the agenda but we couldnt get the
    timing right. Nonetheless we had a lively and pleasant early morning
    discussion and breakfast at Lucias. The Central Market is definitely
    much more civilized early in the morning. Was there earlier this
    evening, noisy and hectic, but did discover a source of 87% dark
    chocolate.

    Id add the nicely spicy Yirgacheffe to your SC list, especially
    as espresso.

    Hope things are going well in Perth ...

    Hi guys, I went to the Central Market tonight too.
    Purely to buy some coffee. Not sure if I am able to mention from who?
    Got some Ethiopian Harrar, my first SO coffee to try. 8-)
    Bought a blend as well.
    Always love going to the Central Market.

    Will have to try SC but will have to get up there and back in a lunch time.
    Been trying to find a list of what they sell.
