Tucked down an unassuming side street in Ashburton, handy to the train station, Mr Brownstone caffeinates early morning commuters, families heading home from the school run and lucky locals in between.
I had the very great pleasure of sipping an espresso of their single origin, Colombia – Las Margaritas; rich, smooth and with more than a hint of dark chocolate and honey, this is an espresso to write home about (so to speak). Just as impressive as the magic they weave with Rosso Coffee beans (http://rossocoffee.com.au/) is baristas and café owners Matt and Mitch’s commitment to fair trade, organic and ethically sourced produce including locally sourced gluten free treats and an impressive array of organic Chamellia teas (http://www.somage.com.au/organic-tea).
If you’re peckish, Mr Brownstone offers a simple yet delicious meals from crunchy croissants to a genuinely ‘Super Salad’, with fresh, high quality ingredients. The interior décor is warm, welcoming and funky and the outer wall features striking street art.
The team there are friendly, they know their beans and are passionate about serving high quality, ethical delicious wares. Get into it!
