When I found out we were moving to the country one of my first thoughts was “…but, where will I get good coffee??”. After a quick google search I stumbled upon the brainchild of Adrian Capra, Art of Espresso – espresso bar, roastery and barisa school; located in none other than our new home town of Young.
Opening their doors in August 2010, Art of Espresso has gone on to become a haven for coffee connoisseurs and inquisitive novice’s alike. Their multiaward winning beans, like the house ‘kombie blend’ are fair trade, rainforest alliance certified and organic. Oh, and they have even made the Lonely Planet guide book as a must visit destination for coffee when visiting country NSW. BOOM!
Set in an old bakery, complete with pressed tin feature walls, funky beats greet you as you walk in and welcoming staff remember your order. The coffee here is second to none and there is a sipping chocolate that will make your diabetic heart beat with desire.
Go for: the coffee – $3.80 small, $4.80 large
Stay for: the staff and good vibes
Bonus: the good folk at AOE also run barista classes so you can learn the tricks of the trade and music nights with the likes of The Audrey’s and Mia Dyson.
