    The Tucker Box - Upper Mount Gravatt

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    The Tucker Box
    Ground floor (no exterior building signage)

    Upper Mt Gravatt

    From their website...commercial link removed per site posting policy
    (We're on the ground floor of the Hypercentre directly opposite Centrelink)
    Weekdays from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm
    • Excellent coffee (when made by Cam, hit and miss otherwise)
    • Good basic food (I recommend the Bacon & Egg sandwich with HP sauce)
    • Good friendly service & relaxed atmosphere
    • Semi-rustic decor

    I work across the road from the Tucker Box (not at Centerlink) and Cam the owner/manager is an awesome bloke to deal with. He works part time with a roaster a few days a week sells consistently good beans (from my limited experience) for a reasonable price and which I rate above Campos Superior Blend.

    Last night Cam had a few bean sales reps in the store offering a tasting for a industry boffins, so today when I walked in for lunch he treated me to 30mL of honey roasted Vietnamese "Kopi Luwak" (apparently wild, not caged) from sparse trade sample leftovers. I was very impressed with the flavour (despite the claimed poor extraction) and Cam's generosity, so I thought I'd knock up a thread here to say thanks!
