Lola Coffee occupies a cosy hole-in-the-wall space in Woolloongabba’s Trafalgar Lane mixed-use development, featuring a stand-up bar reminiscent of Italy’s traditional espresso bars. The cafe comes from Corinne Chilcott, a coffee roaster, Australian Barista Champion and finalist in the World Barista Championships. While coffee will be the primary focus, Lola Coffee also serve homemade sweets baked by Corinne and her husband Brett. The couple works closely with Sydney-based coffee roaster Coffee Alchemy for its blend of choice, as well as chocolate factory Zokoko, which is renowned for roasting premium cacao beans from around the world to create decadent artisan chocolate. The coffee spot will soon start selling espresso machines from Espresso Company and will look to start Saturday trading in August.
