Sydney coffee

Having been disappointed multiple times by Campos Coffee, a much raved about Sydney import that has set up shop in Carlton, I was a little skeptical about the harbour city’s ability to serve up good coffee. A recent trip to Sydney provided a good opportunity to judge Sydney’s coffee scene.

I sampled coffee from a number of Sydney’s coffee hot spots, and it was mixed bag. Le Monde gets a thumbs up, but the much hyped Robocog and Gnome were big disappointments.

Other cafes, known more for their food than their coffee, including Forbes & Burton and Four Ate Five, lived up to expectations. That is, they served great food, but mediocre coffee. This, sadly, is a common tale, not just in Sydney, but also in Melbourne.

    How surprising! A Melbourne coffee critic that only likes coffee roasted in Melbourne.

    Have had some decent coffee at Campos in Melbourne since. Don’t get me wrong, Melbourne has some pretty bad coffee as well :)
