  • Roastville Coffee

    Cafes Marrickville, NSW
    Lets face it coffee is the liquid that makes the world go round or at least keeps most people going. Ever wanted to step to the other side of the coffee machine, grow a bit of stubble and be wired on the product you are serving. At Roastville they run coffee workshops that let you get a feel for what it's like to be a barista or to improve your skills.

    Roastville is a cool specialty coffee cafe/workspace where they roast their own beans. This coffee lovers dream was set up by George, who has vast allround coffee knowledge and who commissioned the coffee workshops.

    We attended the barista introductory workshop run by Andy Liu an accomplished Barista with 10 years experience. Andy himself trained by a world champion barizta and has been titled the NSW Barista champion. Andy is a coffee aficionado, when he is not behind the machine he grades scores coffee, is involved in quality control and cupping sessions. Andy sees the Barista as a bridge between consumer and producers, eho occupy many regions and offer many different varieties.

    We start the workshop with an introduction, with many of the participants having different levels of experience and reasons for attending. In this work shop you will learn the skills required to work the coffee machine. Most importantly, to be organised and methodically and instill good process as habit. This is essential if you are pumping out 400 to 800 cups a day.

    Learn about the product and how to calibrate grinder to produce the right size grain. Follow a recepie, which is a sciene requiring scales to weigh your dose, you need to set the machine with the rich amount of pressure and have the correct brew time. Whilst doing this you also need look after the machine. Learn to be milk stretcher, hit the right angles with the frother to creating the right amount of foam. Then channel your inner artist to finish the job by producing art in a cup.

    We gained alot of insight through this workshop, the sessions are intimate, fun insightful and you are learning quality process from one of the best. Having completed the workshop we have gained a greater appreciation of what it takes to make a good cup of coffee. It is art and science combined. To pump out large volumes of of quality coffee under intense pressure, from a bunch of fiends looking for their caffeine fix, that also takes some skill. Props to those quality baristas out there.

    Along with the barista introductory workshop, Roastville also offer espresso, latte art and cupping workshops. Check out the below link for more details.
  • The Greenhouse

    Cafes Centennial Park, NSW
    Perfect place for an easy lunch with a wrap, sandwich, croissant or muffin! Grab yourself a coffee or juice and enjoy in the Park. They use campos and have great coffee - the chai was so good, I had two. Parking is also easy.
  • Untied

    Restaurants Barangaroo, NSW
    We went to this cool Rooftop bar, at the top of a 5 storey building overlooking Barangaroo. Perfect for Cocktails after work! It is casual, relaxed and suitable for birthdays and hens nights and simply a catch up with friends. The food is great to share, like pork croquettes, tacos, spring rolls etc. Tropical themed decorations, it?s a super fun place.
