One of the pleasures of a morning is a well made coffee. The texture, the smell, the temperature, the aftertaste - all are imperative traits when one infuses their body with what is truly a delicacy but has been cheapened by the world of instant powder. And not everyone can make a decent coffee.
But what's so city centric about coffee, you ask? Well when the beans are roasted by Phillip Di Bella, you know you're getting Brisbane's own. Di Bella coffee is now a Brisbane stalwart, resident in its many coffee houses and quickly spreading to other cities (yes, even Melbourne!) Of the blends available, I enjoy the Modena Blend. It's listed as being full bodied with a fruity aftertaste. Hmm...maybe the fruit fell off my tree. For me, it's strong, robust and forceful. Rar.
