Good coffee in Canberra

By peterthomas 19 February 2008 45

It’s very hard to find a good coffee in Canberra. Does anyone know where can I get a cup of good coffee in Canberra (North)?

[Ed (Kramer) – you could always search RiotACT for previous articles on coffee, like:
Coffee in Canberra
Passion of the Caff
…but, as I’m a huge caffiene addict, I’m not going to stand in the way of a good debate about the best coffee in Canberra.]

What’s Your opinion?

If you go to the show this weekend, try the coffee cart next to Jo the freshly squeezed orange juice guy just up from the front gate. I have one there yesterday and it was excellent, especially with the gltuen free banana bread from the German Cakes stand. Fabulous!!

try U8one2 at Space 2 on Northbourne Ave. They are basicaly a catering firm, but sell reasonably priced good quality food across the counter. Their coffee is great.

gary, extraction times are only one measure of a good shot. Creama, flavour and temprature of the machine and group head (which can vary depending on workload and machine design) all contribute to making the perfect shot. You can extract for exactly 15.0005 seconds everytime, but if the group is cold, the beans not ground properly (poor creama shows) and resulting taste bitter, the stopwatch is useless.

A good barista must keep an eye on the brew. It should be like honey with a good creama and should not be allowed to blonde. They should always adjust depending on age and grind of bean to get best results, not follow a page of instructions that they read instead of reading the brew itself like at Starbucks.

Hi astroja,
Go to find out what is extraction first! If he is a deity, he should know how to get a right extraction for his coffee. I used a timer to count his coffee extraction time that’s why I know his coffee is under extracted.
