Double Roasters, Marrickville

Confession, I have become a coffee snob.  I don’t blame myself at all, mind you.  I blame all these wonderful little cafes that roast their own beans, and boutique roasters popping up all over Sydney.  My snobbery is their fault completely.

I am slowly making my way around town and trying some very good cups indeed.  It has come to the point that my coffee pod machine at home isn’t satisfying me any more.  I am seriously thinking of buying a real machine in order to buy some beans to take home from the various places I visit.  Next you will be reading about me taking a barista course.

Double Roasters CoffeeI just want to set the record straight.  I am by no means a coffee expert; I just know what I like.  Saying that, I am learning quite a bit about coffee on my adventures, but still no expert.

Double Roasters take a small batch approach, 12kgs/batch, to roasting their coffee.  They roast with the season to produce truly handcrafted coffee.  They sell single origin as well as terrior specific blends.

 Double Roasters Ice Coffeeice coffee $4.50

It was a scorcher of a day when I visited Double Roaster.  Due to that decided to have an iced coffee instead of a usual espresso.  Milk, coffee and ice, the way it should be served, not a swirl of cream of artificial coffee flavouring in sight.  The coffee nice and strong, milk creamy and it wasn’t sweet, an adult ice coffee.

 Double Roasters Big Breakfastbig breakfast $16.50

 A big breakfast was ordered for my dining partner, Josh.  As stated, it was big, Pembroke Park poached eggs on sourdough, black forrest smoked bacon, tomato, mushrooms and avocado.  If you prefer your eggs scrambled, they also off the eggs cooked that way.

Double Roasters Pork Sandwich roast pork belly sandwich $9.50

I went for the roast pork belly sandwich, rich, generous and quite delicious.  It is served with apple mint relish, rocket and aioli.   I felt it needed a little something extra to help cut the richness of the pork belly a little more.

On paying the bill, Josh decided there was room for more.  A peanut butter blondie was ordered to take away.  Satisfying the sweet tooth craving, and quite reasonable at $3.50.

I note on urbanspoon that there were quite a few people complaining about the price of the coffee.  To me it seems quite a standard price for around Sydney, plus it is good coffee.

Also read about grumpy staff, staff were lovely and very helpful when we visited on a weekday morning.  Weekends may be a different matter when the place is supposedly packed.

    Love the food here but coffee is only ok. I like the space too. A relish or jam of some sort would be nice with the pork belly sambo.

    This place is a little too far for me if I want to just drop in for a coffee. I do like it, though. Great space. And there’s nothing wrong with being a coffee snob.

    Sydney and Melbourne are lucky to have such good coffee, especially when compared to other English-speaking cities in the world.

    I agree, the price is not that high for the average in Sydney, especially if you get an iced coffee for grown ups.
