Di bella espresso coffee. Level 2 stage area, palms shopping, Coffs Harbour. A few stools and a couple of benches face the espresso bar; a Rancilio machine and a couple of mazza grinders – one for each of the house blends – show that this is a place where serious coffee can be found.
Sadly, there’s no decaf grinder, but even the decaf, complete with latte art in the takeaway cups, provides a taste of quality in a town not renowned for its coffee.
Vittoria coffee. Typical of the use of space in a regional terminal, this place sells wine and spirits, newspapers, magazines, cards and souvenirs. There’s a food court area where customers and travellers alike can eat, and there’s even limited table service.
Coffee is delivered promptly: it has thick foam, and tastes surprisingly good – better than you’d expect.
Rio coffee. The red furniture calls out from the street, hinting that the place shows promise. A narrow range of well-executed menu options. Breakfast is served until 11:30. Seating outside is shielded from the sun by umbrellas.
The coffee is fresh, with a thick milk, and a pleasing, full-bodied flavour.
