Campos Coffee in Civic? Or just some decent decaff?

By NancyNobody - 7 January 2014 22

Does anyone know where I can get a cup of Campos Coffee in Civic? We have a love affair, and I haven’t had a good cup of joe in a very long time.

Or perhaps you can suggest somewhere this pregnant lady can get a decent decaff in this town. Harvest didn’t do it for me, and the coffee shop downstairs from my work gave me caffeinated coffee instead of decaff…

What’s Your opinion?

There’s a little cafe that’s opened up downstairs in the Canberra Center just outside Fitness First (or beside Jamie’s, for those not athletically minded). The name escapes me now, but they definitely serve Campos coffee. The sandwiches are excellent as well, and the staff seem lovely.

I believe Farmers Daughter has just opened up outside Fitness First and they do Campos in Yarralumla (so I’m presuming they also do it in Civic). I haven’t tried it, but look forward to hearing about it.

Hello Nancy
I believe Farmer’s Daughter (who have just opened a kiosk in the Canberra Centre inside near Jamie’s Italian and Fitness First) serve Campos.

Or, if you are ever at ANU, The Gods in the Hedley Bull building also serves Campos coffee.

Good luck!

I went to Farmer’s Daughter a week or two ago. I confirm that they do indeed serve Campos coffee and that it is delicious.

I had a coffee at Farmer’s Daughter in the Canberra Centre and it was bitter and unpleasant, so I assume they are using Campos Coffee.

Why people (particular those from Sydney) like that brand I will never know. Awful.

It’s a brand of coffee roaster with it’s own cafes and who wholesale to others, kind of like Ona. Farmers Daughter claims to be the only place in Canberra that sells Campos.

I’m afraid decaf is an after thought for most cafes, they just keep some powder on hand for those who occasionally need it. I don’t know of any who have a dedicated grinder.

Have you tried a cup of my famous Java?

And while you are asleep on my couch, please excuse me if your breasts need adjusting.

Steve Martin used to be funny. What happened?

Ain’t that the truth. For their sake I hope they don’t have the same pretentious, spend more time looking in the mirror, staff as they have in their Yarralumla shop. Yes they are lovely to look at but the service is slow and unreliable. Coffee can be anywhere from a 8/10 down to a 4/10. They are certainly no ONA.

I assume that you provide that as an example of how he is no longer funny.

Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid is a fantastic movie, one of his earlier works. Like Monty Python quotes, they often aren’t funny read in isolation.

Sexual assault needs a context to be funny. I see.

I saw the heading and I thought Terry Campese had followed what Simon Woolford did a few years ago and opened a chain of cafes/coffee shops.

The bald truth is it would have lasted half a season before the business was on it’s knees…
