Core - Brunswick

Welcome to Core! My new favourite roaster out of Brunswick. Run by Michael (ex small batch) and Dani, Core showcases coffees that are expressive of their origin. The quality of their product is showcased at their brew bar in Brunswick. It's definitely worth a visit as Michael is often brewing up some awesome recipes on their suite of Decent Espresso machines. 

" At Core, we choose coffees that are expressive of their origin and roast them with care to showcase and celebrate what’s important; people and flavour.

We make considered choices about the raw ingredients we buy, the people we work with, and even the boxes we put our coffee in -knowing that each decision will have a lasting impact on our environment and everyone from producers, to you - our customers.

 We love nothing more than the look on someone’s face when they take that first sip, or first bite, or first sniff and they are transported to their happy place. We want to provide you with the best things to fill your cups and your senses. Because we know that’s what gets your day started and gets you over that afternoon hump. It’s those moments, those short breaks from the world that can make life a little bit more enjoyable.

"Blend of three fully washed coffees for your drinking pleasure. Maintaining our tradition of offering you something sweet, and full of fruit, without sacrificing and richness and body that we all love from espresso. This blend is made to punch above its weight. It’s bright and expressive as a black coffee with some juicy fruit highlights, but still has the rich texture that you should get from an espresso. With milk you are in for a proper treat. Silky smooth, sweet, layers of caramels and brown sugar, tropical fruit, chocolate ice cream, and waffles. It’ll put a smile on your face on the gloomiest Monday morning (and every other morning too!)."
