Triple Pick Coffee
It’s not in the most obvious of places (tucked into a nondescript backstreet that houses the Westfield car park exit), but then, nothing about Triple Pick Coffee is obvious. Yes, it’s a cafe serving great coffee, but unlike so many other cafes, it doesn’t make you feel less-than-cool if all you want is a standard cappuccino. There’s third wave availability here, without the hoo-ha.
It’s a simple space adorned rich coffee colours and peppered with coffee bric-a-brac including posters, pictures of coffee and the brewing process and coffee facts along with grinders and some brewing equipment. The menu is compact and leans towards snacks with your coffee, but they roast beans daily in small batches here, so it’s the smell that hits you first – that pungent, burnt caramel aroma of freshly roasted Indonesian Arabica beans.
Surprisingly, iced coffee is another secret weapon they have here. They come complete with a coffee bean shaped ice-cube, made of frozen cold-drip coffee. The idea is to combat watering the drink down; it’s essentially coffee, with a side of coffee, and one to remember for the warmer months.
That being said, they take their coffee seriously here. You can buy house-roasted beans to take home and there’s back-story on every brewing style you care to ask about. It’s not in the most obvious of places, but it is worth hunting out.
