EDITION COFFEE – This Japanese & Scandinavian inspired roastery is doing it again!
2020 was a difficult year for hospitality businesses to navigate. Edition Coffee Roasters, one of Sydney’s top roasters, couldn’t wait to leave the struggles of last year in the past and start fresh in 2021.
This ambitious team of coffee experts aimed to push on this year and open up a brand new shop in the soon-to-open Brookfield Place located smack dab in the heart of the city. If it’s anything like their Haymarket space it’s sure to knock our socks off.
Their flagship store, located in Haymarket’s Darling Square, has been the talk of the town since it opened its doors. It was even the recipient of the coveted 2018 Time Out Food Award for Best Café and has been recognised as having the “best coffee in Sydney” by René Redzepi of Copenhagen’s NOMA, as well as coffee expert Scott Rao calling it “one of the most detail-oriented cafés in the world.”
We couldn’t agree more. With its dark, moody interior showcasing a mix of Scandinavian and Japanese design, Edition Coffee Roasters’ main store is more of an experience than just grabbing a cup of average coffee at your local cafe. Our point is, we can’t wait to see what tricks they have up their sleeve with the new store opening up soon at Brookfield Place. We bet it’s going to be pretty darn special.
While their cafe space and food is incredible – we’re really here for the coffee! Their beautifully crafted roasts are the main reason why we love this crew so much. Edition Coffee is obsessed with sourcing the most unbelievable beans around and roasting single origin coffees that their admirers can’t get enough of.
This month Thieves subscribers are treated to two single origin roasts – one easy drinking espresso coffee from Brazil featuring notes of caramel and fermented grapes and the other being an Ethiopian filter roast that is strongly fruit focused with no trace of bitterness. Both are incredible coffees straight from the geniuses over at Edition. Enjoy!
