Ground Bar café lounge, Canberra Airport

Grinders coffee. As you’d expect from an airport, the prices are high: $3.90 for a large takeaway coffee. The café overlooks the carpark at the airport, with just enough trees visible in the background to let you know you’re in the nation’s capital.

They’re heating milk in a 2L jug, and I don’t hear the grinder operating the whole time I’m queueing, so it’s more of a terrible warning than a shining example.

Coffee takes a while to arrive, and although the first few mouthfuls are disappointing, it soon settles down to that familiar grinders flavour.
