For many of us, the word “Blackstar” makes us think of the late David Bowie’s captivating final album. But for coffee lovers of Brisbane, they know it as a snug cafe that pours out heart and soul into cups, not songs. The team at Blackstar Coffee is passionate about out-of-this-world, fair-trade organic coffee, treating it especially well from bean to cup.Not only do they pour a perfect cup of joe, they help coffee farmers in Indonesia by supporting co-ops. Choose from their signature blend or a range of delicious single origins. Their cold brew is an exceptionally good drop, too! There’s certainly an organic feel to every aspect of this company. Inside it’s suitably earthy, rustic and homely. And beans as well as coffee-making gear can be purchased in-store.Food-wise, if you like your breakfast plain and classic, then this is the spot for you. You won’t see nori or ice cream cones featured on dishes, but you will see all the classics perfectly nailed. Think Bacon and Egg Breaky Burgers, Eggs Florentine and Avo and Smashed Feta on Toast. In saying that, there are dishes like French Toast that are somehow vegan.If you’re partial to a non-caffeinated drink, there’s always the option for a pot of tea, a turmeric chai latte or a nourishing smoothie. Their Peppermint Powerhouse is a real boost made with banana, spirulina, baby spinach, Medjools, chia, cacao, organic peppermint oil and coconut milk.
Stop in for brunch and coffee and feel like a hero, just for one day.
