    Sexie Coffee - Maryborough

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    As you pass Maryborough heading north on the Bruce Highway is a diamond in the rough.

    Sexie Coffee is in an ex-Mc Ds site and the drive through is a nice novelty. They roast their own on a Diedrich IR6 and the blend, although not perfect, is a great find when you are this far from the city. All the baristas are very competant but lack flair and the coffee is as good as many cafes in the city being mentioned. Although at this point I will point out that the cup choices they have made are a little strange, no very strange. The milk based drinks are good, not the best Ive had but well worth a try. The blend is very clean and rich but lacks a little body to cut through those cups I mentioned, go for a double shot. Their espresso is brilliant, rich, fruity, chocolatey and held together with remarkable cleanliness of flavour. They also feature a coffee of the month, last time I was there it was a Kenyan of unknown variety but very good as an espresso.

    If you are heading to Hervey Bay it is past the exit off the Bruce by 8Km, but it is not out of the way as you can take the south bound exit 1Km from the store.

    I too have killed a few from sexy coffee, they are quite good but not as good as mine and i say that with all sincerity, I am extremely spoiled with espresso nirvana as close as its ever been. Always got an excellent yirg, blue horse, tiger mountain, mandhy or kenyan on the go, but I am very african bias and caffein addicted to the max. If any of you are cruising through the coral cove (bundaberg) area drop me a "pm", my place is your place and coffee was developed for social purposes just like a fine drop of red, meant to be shared.......

    Took a trip down south on the weekend and of course purposed to stop off at sexy coffee on the way there and back, I can tell you that the ladies working the la marzoccos are doing it justice, its awesome to see some real talent in a shop situation, you can tell they take pride in it and also enjoy it, cant make a single critisism, I was fully impressed.
    By the way I am quite a fussy coffee snob.

    Ok just got back from Maryborough...when you go dont miss TOAST in the main CBD....they use Aromas beans and have a terrific throughput and no doubt that helps. They have a massive (what must have been 3 group) Venezia machine and an enormous Cunill commercial grinder (taller than a Robur and similar overall otherwise - perhaps a tad thinner). The product is very nice. I asked for and received a small late made with a ristretto pour and the Barista didnt bat a lid at the order. The coffee was nice...a little lost in the milk though because the small was bigger than I have them normally, but still very smooth. The place has a nice feel and a very interesting water feature suspended in the ceiling. The only real criticism is take away cups even when eating in...dont miss it.

    Cheers
