    Hi Qlders (and those who have come to visit)!

    This article came out in ourbrisbane.com website (recently perhaps?) with a long list of good coffee in Brisbane and the comments section throws in a few more to the mix.

    Anyone care to comment on their recommendations? http://www.ourbrisbane.com/food-and-...coffees?page=1

    Are there any notable exceptions? Campos, Veneziano... any others?

    Pesonally, I would add Veneziano to the list, but then I havent really been around enough to know how it compares.

    I havent been to all of those, but there are a few on the list that you would have to pay me to go back to! Remember that journos often have alterior motives. In my opinion 4 of the top 5 are not on that list.

    Caffeine espresso does do great coffee, as does veneziano and my favourite local haunt Jett at Hendra. Can confirm Jett roast their own - i smelled a batch roasting last weekend when i walked past.

    Jett has a 1.2kg fluid bed roaster.

    They have been to inconsistant for me.

    Saabi on Manson are doing a better job IMOP.
