Specialty coffee hideaway Boutique Espresso in Bowen Hills
Opening in the space formerly occupied by Milk Espresso Bar and Tea House, Boutique Espresso is a new cafe by local coffee purveyor Di Bella Coffee.
Just a few blocks away from Di Bella’s headquarters, Boutique Espresso is a smaller and more intimate space that focuses on specialty coffee blends and alternate coffee-brewing methods. While you wait for your morning latte to be poured, staff will also be preparing other brews in various ways and offering samples to all who walk through the door.
Two different grinders grind the beans, with all beans destined for black coffee being put through a naked filter to ensure the elixir doesn’t come into contact with metal at any point. Each day, a cold brew is available, as well as pour-over coffee methods including stove top, V60 and Chemex. Those eager to become their own at-home barista can also request a demonstration from the staff on the different ways to prepare coffee.
The idea is to rotate brewing methods and offer a single-origin blend of the month to ensure different styles of coffee are always available. Light meals including bircher muesli, muffins, pastries, yoghurts and Turkish breads are available, and the team continue to introduce new options to the menu.
