A perfect espresso is a given at Ruby D’s, or filter or pour-over, if that’s how you swing. But there’s also bulletproof coffee: a blend of MCT oil, grass-fed butter and coffee that’s popular among health enthusiasts as a meal replacement. It’s not unlike drinking a cup of fat mixed with caffeine – taste the insanity
Bartender Quynh Nguyen is at the cans at this Bondi restaurant, offering fun cocktails like the Good Morning Vietnam. The ultimate kick-on drink, it’s a strong coffee, lengthened with condensed milk and spiked with bourbon. Even without the slug of booze it’s a heart-starter.
Forget beer. Forget wine. Forget Negronis. It’s all about fizzy coffee on tap. At Coffee Alchemy, Marrickville’s go-to spot for experimental caffeine, they’re not only carbonating their cold coffee – they’re pulling it like you’d pull a Guinness. The result is a herbaceous, fizzy, bittersweet middy of coffee. Strangely delightful.
