Cleanskin Coffee Co
121/193 South Pine Rd
Like all the best things in life, Cleanskin Coffee Co, a superb boutique coffee roastery, is hard to find tucked away as it is in a far flung northside industrial estate. Yet drop by its sleek new premises (upgraded from a shipping container) at any time of day and you'll find a buzz of caffeine nuts sipping on cups of the fab in-house blend.
Meanwhile the black clad staff whisk around between the roasting room and the sipping room, serving customers, discussing the coffee and roasting beans (done daily). What makes this place special is the 20 years combined experience of the friendly staff, their dedication to ethically traded, sustainable and ethical coffee, the small batch roasting (resulting in a deserved swag of Golden Bean awards over the past 4 years).
Their signature blends – no 13, 14, 15, Saint Espresso and Mexican Decaf – come by the bottle or kilo as do their origins and while there you can also pick up some shott syrups or a block of their Cravve Grand Cru single origin artisan dark chocolate.
