Calima coffee. 106 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville. Growing up, Erskineville was always the place that the trains wouldn’t stop, but these days it’s a fairly quiet village-style suburb. This café is on the main street (last time I was here it was called big boys cafe), so the quiet is broken up by the regular sound of cars passing.
Not many people are here for breakfast midweek on a school holiday, which could explain the low staff numbers, and slow arrival of the coffee. Water seems to be self-serve, or request-only too.
Coffee is very smooth; thick, drinkable immediately. This isn’t a blend that improves as the coffee cools, though, so best to drink it fast, if possible.
