‘Big Iron’ espresso equipment dominates Liar Liar’s counter space, and a blackboard behind it soberly states the single origin coffees available. Even the door knob, a group-handle from an espresso machine, hints that Liar Liar has gone to great lengths to pay homage to the bean.
With its austere modern decor, the cafe is packed with patrons, though at no time do I feel rushed. Friendly and professional staff work like a well-oiled machine
The menu has a range of regular breakfast and lunch options, and a supplementary coffee menu offers rarer selections, such as three variations of macchiato and a piccolo. Fresh juices abound, with playful names such as Golden Pash, Purple Sunrise and Hippy Juice.
My Brazil Fazenda espresso arrives with a light brown crema and nutty aroma. Expertly extracted, it’s bright, punchy, and has a clean, short finish. The Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a flowery aroma, syrupy sweetness and fruit acidity that gives way to a wonderfully smooth finish. An exceptional experience.
