    smuggled seeds espresso

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    popped in the other day after a friend recommended the place. hidden away from the usual cafe strip in leederville but amazing brews available. mostly 5senses roasts but the barista did an awesome job of the gesha on the kalita wave.
    the partner had one of the most well-made mochas ive ever tasted (and im not much for mochas) and awesome eats available too!
    will definitely go back to try some of those espresso - these guys love their coffee just as much as we do!
    friendly staff, synesso/robur, almost all the brew methods conceivable (except maybe syphon) and great eats!

    surprised they've been open for a year and i havent heard of them much!

    Good coffee in Leederville - it's about time!

    this is a little gem, brilliant coffees ranging from espresso to pourover and cold drip from coffee guru Rob, a small but tasty selection of delectable food choices, cosy and friendly atmosphere, highly recommended...!!

    I think this is one of the best places in the Western Suburbs. Robbie Williams pumps out awesome coffee and does it with charisma. The following is not as fanatical as some of the lesser quality places on Oxford Street which always surprises me.

    Thought the coffee and service was great but the food was lacking. Flavourless eggs and way too much bread.

    Agreed. I've never been disappointed every time I step into Smuggled Seeds. It's tricky to get a place to sit though because of the small space.

    I have to adjust my review since visiting a few more times (plus I think I was in a bad mood that day). Eggs still aren't my favourite but quite like the muesli (although a bit sweet), it's nice and cheap. The coffee as stated previously is good and has been every time I've visited. Service is great. As the above poster mentioned the seating can be a bit awkward at times.

    Smuggled Seeds is NO LONGER OPERATING.

    It closed in December 2014 - the guy running it (whose name I didn't get) was planning to have a break, then open another cafe somewhere else.

    Unfortunately I only found the place about a month before they closed. The coffee was excellent - best in Leederville, and best long black I've had in years - with enthusiasm and knowledge to match. I drove past the place recently (March 2015) and there was a sign in the window saying a new cafe is coming soon - they will have a lot to live up to.

    .
    The guys behind Smuggled Seeds are getting close to opening their new business soon, likely sometime late this year. Exciting times ahead cuz I really loved what they did at Smuggled Seeds!
