    Sydney Coffee near circ. quay

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    At short notice I am being air freighted to Sydney this week and will be staying at the Harbour Marriot on Pitt Street near Circular Quay (and the Rocks)

    I know where Mecca is in relation to my hotel but are there any nearer cafes that a snob would deign to visit?

    Even in The Rocks?

    Hey Grendel,
    Are you talking about Mecca or the Mecca2? Theres a newer one at Circular quay (cnr of George and Albert I think), just a bar with a GB5, Swift, you know, the usual ;)... otherwise yeah, Mecca on King. I cant help you with any other good coffee around the Rocks.... Im sure there is. I dont know though. If you wait around until mid July, Im sure therell be some good coffees to be had (at AROMA!).

    If you can get up to the other end of the city with Single Origin that way in Surry Hills.

    Itd be worth heading up to Mecca on King after Mecca2 and check out the 2 x Mistrals theyve got there now. Delish.

    Oh and Mecca 2 is hard to find if youre not looking for it. Its at the entrance of a building under-cover. On the corner of George and Albert. Super close to your hotel.... like a block.

    Hey mate, I believe I spoke to you on the phone today?? The best time to drop by Mecca 2 is pretty much anytime between 11am and 3:30pm... The mornings can be a bit hectic, but after 11 it cools off a bit and theres plenty of time to kick back, relax, and talk coffee with King Sam or myself.

    Hope you find the place okay!

    You did indeed speak with me today! Im hoping to snap a few quick pics for my coffee blog, but it is highly likely that my first foray will be in the morning - early. We will also try and come in the afternoon (what better place to debrief!) but I take it from the statement above that you close at 3.30?
