Coffee Supreme Cafe & Coffee Brew Bar 42 Douglas St, Ponsonby, Auckland, NZ http://www.coffeesupreme.com/ A nouveau-hipster cafe that was serving up some Sumatra on espresso as well as their in house blend. An excellent barista pulled us a ristretto and it turned out with a rich body and gentle sweet acidity. Beautifully done! The staff were very generous with their sample bags of whole bean coffee. They have an on-line sight for ordering. Before we left we tried a delicious Kenyan Waitangi cold brew coffee that was apple juice-like refreshing - a perfect cuppa for a hot day in Ponsonby. These folks are dedicated to fine specialty coffee and have some excellent medium roasts for sale. We are looking forward in the weeks to come trying many of their different roasts. When in Auckland, place Coffee Supreme very high on your list of ‘must visit’.
Coffee Lab 15 Silverfield, Wairau Valley, Auckland, NZ http://www.coffeelab.co.nz/ This is our second year visiting Coffee Lab (see May 9, 2012). It is where one has to go in New Zealand, being one of the the top cafes and roasters anywhere on this planet. Its continued dedication to roasting quality coffee and making it so very well makes it a delightful and educational experience. Seven key elements come together at Coffee Lab, all necessary for a coffee pilgrimage site: high quality beans, excellent roasting, superb barista, high end equipment, an attitude of genuine friendliness, a pleasant quiet space to taste and discuss the art of coffee and a willingness to share and educate. Cupping roasts with Anna, watching and learning about roasting was a marvelous encounter with attention to detail. We learned plenty and came away with some very fine coffees. As a traveller and explorer of great cafes/coffees, we are open-minded to having mediocre coffees bec
Most amazing (only 1 year old cafe) cafe and coffee roaster in Panajachel by Lake Atitlan. We had a geisha roasted by Ariel who owns the cafe. Superb!! These guys are seriously into coffee in a good way. Light, medium and medium to dark roasts, the full range of coffee flavours available. Very friendly and very forthcoming with all information, making themselves available to answer all our coffee curious questions. So, we bought a bag of coffee - of course! The coffee roaster machine they are roasting with is made in Guatemala, in a village near Antigua.
