Parallel Roasters

If you’re a regular traveller along the Pacific Motorway, it’s likely you already have your go-to places to grab a coffee. The spots that are easy to get to so you can caffeinate and get back on your merry way. If we may, allow us to introduce you to a hot new contender – it’s called Parallel Roasters and it’s located just off the M1 in Carrara. If the name seems familiar, it’s because they’ve built somewhat of a cult following among Brisbane’s coffee-craving crowd for its uncomplicated approach and earnest enthusiasm for the craft. The brand-new Gold Coast home for Parallel Roasters serves a variety of purposes – first and foremost as a roastery, where you can see (and smell) the beans roasting away. There’s an onsite espresso bar that offers Parallel’s entire range to suit your sipping preference, whether it’s a crisp, clean v60 pour-over or a fail-safe flat white. The pair have big plans for their new space, which will include cupping and tasting sessions, coffee appreciation events, industry nights, comps and training. Next time you’re in the neighbourhood and in need of a little pep in your step, pop in to Parallel Roasters.
