Hours: Thurs-Mon 10am-3pm
On our trek towards Albany we called in at well-known boutique dairy Bannister Downs nestled in the lush rolling green dairy country in Northcliffe in the deep south of WA.
The rustic cafe has large viewing windows where visitors can view the milk processing and packaging of one litre biodegradable pouches with inflatable handles that all of Perth’s top cafes use as their choice of milk.
We headed to the counter with a La Cimbali sitting there all nice and shiny, we ordered a flat white, latte and capo along with the obligatory scones, jam and Bannister Downs cream (of course).
My flat white was a visual delight with silky milk, dainty artwork and rich crema showing around the rim, the blend cut through the milk and the natural sweetness of the Bannister Downs milk made for a taste sensation and well worth the trek to get here. My wife’s latte was a visual delight in a tall tapered glass all the colours of espresso, crema, milk and foam swirled to create a kaleidescope of colours and she commented that the blend cut through the quantitiy of milk nicely. Chris’s capo was spot on and complimented the fresh scones, jam and cream that we devoured with gusto.
Coffee was a four bean blend from Yahava roasters, Yallingup
Highly recommend a visit if you are touring the bottom corner of WA.
Magnificent rural vistas, good food and coffee, I’m going to award them a one beaner!
