    Yahava

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Found a nice coffee shop called Yahava on Middle Swan Rd in the Swan Valley. Its a lovely drive to get there on a Sunday. Plenty of parking in front and in the shop theres a retail shelf on the right side with plungers, cups n saucers, teapots, mugs and Aeropress. In the middle there is a cupping or tasting counter with friendly people. Other end theres a cake and coffee service counter with tables and chairs both inside and outside which overlooks a kind of lake and vines. At the cashier counter theres a range of brown beans on offer.
    For a more substantial meal. next door theres a tuck shop
    Coffee is roasted on site and is good. Recommended!

    Arent we both showing our age ehh Jon? ;)
    Very Australiana term that one.
    I remember the tuck shop at North Geelong primary school where i learnt that term from fellow scabs...i mean fellow classmates.
    Bought 14 cents worth of mixed bag lollies which was impossible to finish in one sitting but i had willing "friends" who had no hesitation doing the seagull squable that lasted half a minute, and the bag was gone!

    Back to Yahava, they had just about everything except for coffee machinery. Great place to chill out with coffee in hand, and sitting outside gazing over the lake and towards the hills. Would be a cool place for a WA Coffeesnobs get together.

    Suspect Ive got quite a few years on you Gary, during my school days can recall buying (lollies) another quaint Aussie term, by the penny worth, think about 2 a penny or a small bag for sixpence, a meat pie or pasty was sixpence as was a pile of chips wrapped in newspaper that was impossible to finish on your own, now Im really showing my age. ;D

    As for the tuck shop, it was a term not used a lot in SA, more of an Eastern states thing I think. :)

    Re: Yahava

    And now back on track to Yahava, I have tried Yahava down in Margaret river, Cant comment on all the blends but a few I have tried I found to be a bit over roasted. Not bad coffee, just a bit over done for my tastes.

    yeah theyve been in Margaret River for years. I always dropped in there when taking visiting family and friends on the obligatory tour of the Margaret River wine region. Theyve recently moved to a new premises south of Margs and havent been there since. I used to use their beans mainly because they post to Southwest WA at no charge which makes them good value. I usually ordered their Organic blend.
    But the shop is a great place to drop in and browse... they offer tastings of all their different beans too. Not the best coffee Ive ever had but definitely worth a visit

    Id recommend the trip to the Swan Valley any day of the week Goodies. My eyes tell me all of their beans are roasted to C8-9 except for their Espresso Blend which is C10, which i think would be suitable for coffees with milk.

    Will try their outlet at Marg River if im down there.

    Re: Yahava

    Yahava has been down in Margaret River for quite a while. They also have a local roasting facility in Vasse which is where I get a lot of my beans from.

    I know the owners of the company because our cafe (as well as many others where i live) use Yahavas beans.

    The coffee I have had from their Roasting facility and from their mobile van has always been great :)

    I knew that they had another shop in the Swan Valley, but hadnt been there myself.

    However a lot of customers I get to talking to from Perth talk to me about Yahava and they always say good things about their Swan Valley store :)

    Id recommend checking them out if you ever see any of their stores.

    Reviving a post from the dead.

    Went to Yahava Margaret River this morning. While the guy behind the counter knew bugger all about coffee, he had been trained well and managed to pour an excellent shot. I had their "Espresso" blend, as an espresso. Confusing but worth the wait.

    I quite enjoy a day out at the swan valley, starting with Yahava before wine and lunch I the arvo. One thing remember enjoying the first time I was there was the ability to try the different roasts with the differing paraphernalia that each snob gets accustomed to. So might enjoy the kahava or blackgold in your usual espresso , but maybe would like to see how it is ground and suited to French press/ Aeropress etc . Cant remember if they do pourovers but they had loads of different options in the cupping/tasting counter.
