Craig Miller runs a coffee roastery in Cross Street, next to We.ar and below the Ironbank building. From 7 to 12 in the morning you can get a full-on coffee fix in an environment that is a great fusion of industrial look and elegant sophistication, including a grand chandelier; not to forget the sofa with cushion covers made from coffee bags.
I had already damaged the barista’s art with a spoonful of sugar when I took the shot above, but the table decoration of hibiscus flowers more than makes up for that. I had arrived at the right moment, just as a batch of freshly roasted coffee was pouring out of the roasting drum onto the cooling tray.
An interesting place, great tasting coffee and knowledgable explanations from Craig: go there! 31 Cross Street, Newton.
