Their coffee brings all the mums to the yard

It’s pretty rare for Mums with young kids to be able to enjoy a quality coffee at the playground whilst on watch… especially if you’ve got a toddler who simply can’t wait to run screaming for the road in fits of laughter, fire in his eyes, red horns whilst you tear after him. What’s even more…

Life, Death and Coffee

I stopped by Café Elixir today. It was loud and bustling and busy, filled with friends, lovers and families. It was here, six years ago that my Grandad decided to talk to me about his death. Fighting bowel cancer, he was upbeat and happy but there was a noticeable change within him in the days…

How I “Suspended a Coffee” and why you should too

Napoli, Italy. The birthplace of great coffee. Here during the 1st World War a tradition began from working class café where someone would order a caffe’ sospeso and pay the price for 2 coffees but receiving and consuming only one.

With a ‘hip’ cafe on almost every corner in this neighborhood, Biet, with its unpretentious interior, feels more like rocking up at your friend’s house for good coffee than a cafe.

Coffee with conviction

Wander through Fortitude Valley, Brisbane for more than a couple of blocks and you’ll start to notice something. While the streets are lined with boutiques and bars, there is something else lining the streets. The faces and stories of those experiencing homelessness. However, the Fortitude Valley is now home to a cafe working hard to…

Bean there Squeezed that!

Not the most original heading, I know! However, this blog is all about coffee and I haven’t had enough of it today to be original. My moments with coffee are plentiful. It’s hard to narrow them down into a selection of musing. However, I’m going to go with plugging a local franchise I both frequent…
