We don’t remember if we came here on a barista’s recommendation or if we simply stumbled upon it (equally likely), but discovering Espresso Workshop was heavensent.

Admittedly the coffee bar in Auckland’s revived Britomart neighbourhood isn’t the original (that honour belongs to their Parnell Roastery and headquarters in Falcon Street) but that hardly matters when the coffee is exceptional.

How exceptional? Well, they’ve trained and produced Auckland’s top-ranked baristas annually since 2009. That’s a record that speaks for itself.

Founded in 2007 by Erica and Andrew Smart, Espresso Workshop offers more than its namesake; besides espresso-based beverages, single origin drip coffee is also available. Relax in the wood-and-steel café while baristas dance around behind the bar, joking and laughing, brewing good coffee, one cup after another.

It’s a joy to behold, and when your cuppa arrives, glorious from the sip to the last.

忘了是通過朋友介紹,還是我們自己找到的這家咖啡館,
Espresso Workshop無疑是奧克蘭之行中的一大驚喜。
Espresso Workshop的總店和豆子烘焙坊在Falcon Street,
而我們到訪的是他們在Britomart 區的分店。
對我們來說,總店還是分店都沒分別,最重要是能喝到一杯好咖啡。
這家開業由Erica 和 Andrew Smart經營的咖啡館已經開業八年多,
自2009起便囊括了不少奧克蘭咖啡師大賽的獎項,
咖啡的水準不言而喻。

雖然咖啡館取名為Espresso Workshop,
可是這裡除了有好喝的意式咖啡外,單品手沖也是亮點。
我們點了兩壺虹吸咖啡,
無論是瓜地馬拉還是肯亞,都沖除了我們喜歡的口感和香氣。
專業的咖啡師,舒適的環境,加上好喝的咖啡,
這是間讓人感覺愉悅的咖啡館。
