Artificer - Surry Hills - Drop Coffee

Artificer - 5 February 2022

“Specialising in the procurement of delicious coffee. Focusing on the correlation between selection, roasting and brewing that best representing its unique qualities”

Welcome to Artificer! A small coffee bar and roastery out of Surry Hills operated by two legends of the industry Dan Yee and Shoji Sasa. Artificer has quickly become the best place in Sydney for specialty coffee.

If you look closely, you might notice we are only actually featuring 3 coffees this week:

1. Colombia Matambo AA

2. Peru La Danta AA

3. Rwanda Cyarumbo Women's Coffee

This is because the seasonal blend is made up of coffees 1&2. Ever wondered why we blend coffees together? If you’re on the Milk or Mixed subscription this week is a chance to get some first hand experience on the matter. As you’re drinking your coffees’, think about the flavour, texture and mouth feel. Compare the Seasonal with the Peru and think about which one you prefer. Does the seasonal taste different to you even though 40% of it is the Peru? You might be surprised to the answer. 

Most importantly though, enjoy these delicious coffees courtesy of Artificer.
