Shop 1/13 Ernest Street, Crows Nest, NSW, 2065
You wouldn’t think hessian could pass as art, but at Bean Drinking it sets the scene for a serious coffee experience. Recycled coffee sacks decorate the walls, and in a more functional, albeit equally eye-catching gesture, a large bean roaster adorns the cafe’s floor. Situated next to the town green, we’re almost tempted to order our coffees and head straight for the lawn. Happily, outdoor seats and tables are plentiful, and our visit becomes something of a spectator pastime as the locals get going.
The food menu is brief, but more than made up for by the coffee menu, which includes specialty roasted blends and daily single origin options. The espresso is rich and bright, with wakening citrus flavours. By contrast, the flat white is mild and delicate, and enjoys dark chocolate undertones.
With knowledgeable staff, a coffee lab, siphon brew,gleaming Slayer espresso machine and home barista accessories to add to its repertoire, Bean Drinking is the past, and moreover the future, of serious coffee.
