Coffee in Fyshwick?

By brm86 28 July 2010 51

Have moved jobs to Fyshwick – can’t find any decent coffee here.

Tried several like Pelligrinos, the Harley place, Buzz but all very average.

Does anyone know a good coffee place??

What’s Your opinion?

That Ona coffee place has opened in Fyshwick across the street from Kapital kebabgs and Elaines. Had coffee and a burger there and it was quite nice. That said the Fyshwick cafe & bakery next door to the kebab shop also does much better than expected coffee and you get a biscuit with your coffee.

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster (finally have something to contribute)… a little review of a new coffee place in fyshwick…

Well I’m always in and out of fyshwick for business and noticed Ona’s new cafe on Wollongong street and, seeing people sitting out front, I decided to pop in and have lunch/coffee. I gotta admit I was pretty impressed by the coffee, food and overall setup at their roastery!

Rather than getting a normal coffee I noticed a fancy contraption in the corner (looking like it was straight out of a chemistry lab) that turned out to be a cold drip coffee device. Next to it was a smaller contraption with a burner underneath, which the owner explained was used to make “siphoned” coffee. I decided to go for the siphoned coffee and was quite impressed when the owner talked me through the entire process as he made it in front of me. Apparently you get alot more of a “pure” flavour through a siphon (I’ll leave that up to the coffee snobs to decipher).

I also went for their euro burger, which the waitress recommended. It was a good call as it had a juicy cut of pork belly (slow cooked for 4hrs apparently) combined with with sour kraut, fancy mustard in sour dough with a side of beer battered chips. Hats off to the chef it was damn good.

I walked out quite surprised, not expecting that sort of service/quality and setup. I guess it’s still the “honey moon” period but I’m hoping it’ll hold up. I’ll be making this a regular stop off on my ventures into Fyshwick – and come to think of it a good way to finish off a day’s motorbike ride on the weekend too!

Hope this helps any resident coffee nuts.
rony.

MWF, you know that tea is full of caffeine too? Sure, not as much as coffee, but if you think a nice cuppa isn’t going to make you blurt “caffeine loaded comments” you’re deluding yourself. SHUT UP AND GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE!! (winkey smiley smiley winkey etc)

Hi Jake555,

does anyone happen to own a SAECO Via Venezia

I have one of these machines. I bought it second-hand from a serious-looking German academic. With patience you can get a very good coffee from it. As I remember I found it was seen as desirable for having a boiler, not an aluminium block, and for its simple rugged construction at the modest price point. In my opinion it leaves any fully automatic domestic machine for dead – and I actually witnessed the slow death of a DeLonghi machine of the same vintage as the Saeco as it succumbed to its own complexity. It was owned by a friend who didn’t see the irony. I felt vindicated later in a coffee machine store as we sought a very expensive replacement. The owner believed the Saeco – the older Via Venezia you mention, with black switches, not the newer version with silver switches – was bulletproof and said that with a bit of care it will last ten years or more. Buying the Saeco made me aware of how much caffeinated swill I had poured down my throat over the years, and left me disinterested thereafter in the ‘which funky cafe does it best’ debates because I can, and often do, enjoy 80 to 90 per cent street-quality espresso at home.

Holden Caulfield said :

What’s worse – hi-fi wankers crapping on about the most esoteric brand of speaker they just paid eleventy squllion bucks for or coffee wankers bullshitting about the barista with the best wristcock?

Couldn’t agree more . . . and I’ve drunk a million coffees.
