COFFEE CRAFT – Glandore, SA

678 South Road, Glandore SA, 5037
If you are in any way at all enamored by God’s gift to her creation that is ‘coffee’ – then a visit to Coffee Craft is a pilgrimage you have to make.  Discovered by my wife, as we sat in a traffic jam caused by the tram line overpass (God bless it’s little cotton socks) this place proved to be a revelation. Thought to be nothing more than a distributor of coffee (with the Fair Trade logo prominently displayed in the window) it turnout out to be so much more. They purchase and roast their own beans under their own label, they sell pretty much all things coffee related – from high end machines for both personal and professional use, to single cup plungers, books about coffee, books about books about coffee – and the pièce de résistance is that it is also a fully functioning café.  While it is not going to score high on the “venue suitability for” scale – if you like – scratch that – if you LOVE coffee, than get along to this place and check it out!!

Latte Quality – Lattastic!  – the first cup was free, so hard to tell if I loved it because it was free – so I purchased a second cup and it was just as good!!  Even being paid out for having sugar in it, did not change the taste experience for me!! 😉

Cost – $3.00 for a regular cup.

Coffee SupplierLa Crema – which is their own brand, which is roasted in house – and have won medals for it!!

Fair Trade – Yes – they are proud suppliers of Fair Trade Coffee – and won a silver medal for their Fair Trade Blend.

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat – If the chat was about Coffee – then certainly, but otherwise…No.
  • Deep and Meaningful – No – the place is a fully functioning retail shop, and repair place for coffee machines.
  • Study and Reflection – No.
