Where’s the good coffee?

By ant 18 September 2007 26

I was thinking maybe my coffee tastes had changed, gone to the dogs. Every coffee I bought was underwhelming… usually too bitter, some dull, was it me?

well, I had a really superb coffee on Sunday, at the Kingston Bus Depot Markets! It was from a trestle set up at the entrance nearest the glassworks (near the office). They had a bit of cloth stuck up on the wall with The Outpost on it, and it was staffed by two young kids who seemed pretty happy with things. The chap discarded the first draw and started again. It was a flat white, and wow, it was good. Incredibly dense and creamy brown foam-stuff, and a lovely rich coffee, bitter and body balanced perfectly. I’ve no idea what beans they used, but they must have been good, and the young chap even better.

So I figure there must still be good coffee around the place. Where’s the good stuff? And, dob in the bad stuff!

Try Satis at Watson shops! Terrific new hole in the wall; they use Jasper fairtrade organic.

Ah ha, now here’s the thing. I had a coffee at Cream while killing time in civic one saturday. It wasn’t bad, but it was just ordinary. It was a strong one, and the bitter was just killing it.

This coffee I had at a trestle table at Kingston markets was about twice as good (it was that good). And it was in a funny-looking cardboard cup.

I’ve found both Tonic and Cream in Civic to be quite good for strong coffee at fairly reasonable prices. Not a fan of Valentino’s – their regular coffee is weak, if you want a strong one it costs significantly more than their competitors, and then there’s the whole ‘membership’ thing…

+++Valentino is a Lavazza trainer and all his staff can make really good espresso.+++

Val’s actually moved to Sydney, but I think a fair few of his old staff are still there.

I haven’t been there too often yet, but Mosaics in James Court seem pretty good.
