If you go out of your way to seek out cafes serving Allpress Espresso, you had best mark Monday November 20 in your diary. The New Zealand-born roaster is opening its first stand-alone Brisbane space in East Brisbane, and it’s going to be much more than simply a cafe. Allpress Espresso will be open Monday to Friday serving coffee, breakfast and lunch, but will also include a training area, a technical workshop to service and work on La Marzocco espresso machinery, and a production space for picking and packing coffee. Espresso-based coffee will be served on Allpress’ signature Carmelo blend, while filter coffee will be offered as a blend, a rotating single origin or limited-edition blend – the berry and spice-flavoured Christmas blend will launch in time with the store opening. The simple food menu will complement the coffee, with bites including eggs and soldiers, signature sandwiches, and an Italian-inspired mixed plate of toast, tomato, provolone, boiled egg, avocado and trout or prosciutto. We’ll have more details soon!
