Excelsior Jones - Sneak Peak
A couple of sneak preview snaps during the setup of newly opened café Excelsior Jones. A beautifully fitted café in Sydney’s Inner West suburb of Ashfield. that I have had the pleasure of photographing. These were taken during setup, so are just a sneak preview. More, ‘proper’ photos to come.
All snaps taken on my fruity portable telecommunications device.
Café Grumpy’s Heartbreaker
Morning espresso was @samplecoffeebar’s showcase espresso - @cafegrumpy’s Heartbreaker (for today only). I was less than eloquent when Karl asked what I thought of it (the caffeine hadn’t kicked in yet), but it was surprising. It was crisp, with a tart, but pleasant, bite to the flavour. Impressed.
I then followed this up with a latté. I maintain that Reuben and Karl are amazingly talented. Always surprised at the sweetness of their lattés, the amazing texture of the milk, adding to the base layer espresso. Best lattés I’ve ever had, come from Sample Coffee Bar. (if you haven’t tried them, do so.)

More photos of the snake, it’s a python, that’s decided to order an espresso at my old home.
