Having opened recently, Edition Coffee Roasters is still quite minimalist and bare with no real decor on the plain white walls and seating for around 20 in the small one room cafe. Not that, that is a problem of course, this can work as a long term style, and Edition certainly seems to rock that style- even the takeaway cup are completely blank.
There is a selection of breakfast options that mainly include gourmet twists on the cafe standards, but let’s get down to the coffee. Considering that Edition roast their own coffee, I expected good quality. Those expectations rose a little when I was charged $4 for a regular coffee. I mean, that’s pretty much airport prices.
The coffee was good. It had a very smooth texture and clean crisp taste. It wasn’t too bitter. It definitely wasn’t burnt and it didn’t taste particularly acidic either. So needless to say it was nice. But was it $4 nice? I don’t think it stood out enough from other coffee bean roasters to warrant the price, although it was good enough that is return.
