Café buzz coffee. Located in one of port’s many food courts, this seems to be the destination for serious coffee drinkers. Food prices are comparable to sydney, and there’s a range of coffee related equipment on sale, including the rancilio rocky grinder.
If you’re looking for the kind of delicatessen treats that you find on food tourism trips – shortbread, cordials and jams, hibiscus flowers – this is the place.
Coffee takes a long, long while to arrive: the twenty tables are quite busy with the mid-morning rush, but still: this is a long wait. A chocolate coated coffee bean adorns the teaspoon when the drinks are brought out. The coffee itself is well above average, smooth, good temperature. The blend has a simple, direct flavour without too much ornament.
