Currency Creek Estate – Currency Creek, SA

Winery Road, Currency Creek, SA, 5214

It has been nearly 18 months since our lounge room floor was graced with the presence of Steve – and it was he who suggested that my next coffee review should be out at Currency Creek – a place, where earlier that day we have been doing some wine tasting, while on our ‘welcome to region – we have been here less than a month – wine tasting and thai food tour – with Steve who was the only Minister from CoC who welcomed us to SA when we moved’ – we were going to get T-Shirts printed, but the titled went round it twice.  Any Who – in the need to get my first assignment piece done for this seventh to last unit on my second Master’s degree done – I took a study day just to read and drink coffee, and ended up out at Currency Creek.  They have been promoting their ‘coffee and cake’ service via a sign on the Strath to Goolwa road since we have been down here, so I was surprised – when you consider I couldn’t get a park in the car park, to discover that I was the only person there for coffee (it was a Tuesday afternoon) – but there was a great deal of laughter coming from the wine tasting area.  The staff was very friendly – there was only one – a very friendly woman who looked after my coffee needs, whilst also lubricating the tourists with the best of what Currency Creek Winery has to offer.  I took my seat – all alone with a view of the lush green grass which rolled its way down the hill towards the creek known for its Currency. Unless you want to die from a sugar induced coma – don’t try ‘Caramel Sin’ – oh, man!

Latte Quality – Good – Excellent.  I was a bit dubious considering all the tasks that she had to perform – but it was good.

Cost – $3.50 – for a large latte glass

Coffee Supplier – Andronicus – I know – aka Nestle – yuck. 

Fair Trade – Nope – did I mention it was Nestle?

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat/Deep and Meaningful/Study and Reflection – Absolutely – I was pretty much all alone in a great big room – which had the potential for a roaring fire in its centre – the only down side was that being the only person there, the music had no where to go but to me – so the Michael Buble which was followed by Guy Sebastian – kind of sucked, but I worked through it.  Of course every time I hear Buble sing “I did it my way’ – I can’t help but associate that with Roxburgh’s “Missional Change Model”
