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
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”
