The Street Photographer: Grindhouse Specialty Coffee

A true hole-in-the-wall coffee destination, Grindhouse Specialty Coffee at Stones Corner is tucked inside an old garage, in a carpark, off a laneway, near Logan Road. The walls and ceiling are lined with empty coffee sacks from around the world, making the interior resemble a rustic tent-like ambience. Nestled among the golden tones of the sacks, low wooden tables and ambient industrial lighting is the feature of this espresso bar – a deep red La Marzocco coffee machine. Serving up a number of signature blends across an array of alternative brewing methods, Grindhouse Specialty Coffee is a haven for local caffeine connoisseurs. Ever-changing single-origin blends from the likes of Brazil and Tanzania slot into the menu next to a house blend, all sourced from Dramanti Artisan Roasters at Wynnum and Supreme Roasters at Yatala. Run by Kenesi Bowie (great last name) and Bob (just Bob), at… more

The Street Photographer: Bunker

Ivy vines creep from the outside in, snaking their way along the walls and ceiling of this tiny concrete cave. After discovering a war bunker constructed during World War II, Marcus Allison turned the disused space into a comforting haunt for the coffee and hot-chocolate obsessed denizens of the neighbourhood. Whether huddled inside, cradling a warm cup of organic, fairtrade hot chocolate and a book, or sprawled across the sidewalk for a post-cycle coffee with friends, Bunker is an espresso haven where community is key and source, quality and fairness are highly valued. Check out Bunker on The Street Photographer.  more

Duck into Bean. to escape the busy city streets

A sea of blue-checkered shirt-wearers swarm like a pack in all directions, while the sound of heels clacking on the uneven pavement fills the streets. Every now and then someone will break from the flock, ducking down a shadowy alleyway, unbeknownst to the others. They're not being mysterious though; they're just in tune with the latest underground coffee haunt at which to escape the bustle of the city streets above. more
