The land down under is known for it’s beer, and deservedly so, but Mark Baird wants it to be recognized for it’s espresso as well. Co-founder of the Aussie Longshot Mobile espresso bar, the trained Master Barista has made it his mission to bring top notch espresso to businesses such as TV shows The Mentalist, The Office, House as well as parties ( Oscars) and basically anywhere that can accommodate his fully contained kart.
Recently, they brought their caffeine joy to our offices. Some of us sampled the Australian Cappuccino, a smooth blended espresso with a dusting of Australian chocolate on top. Others went for one of the lattes, and the more adventuresome among us sampled the straight espresso, which shows off the subtleties of the roast. Roasted to be not as bitter as Starbucks or Coffee Bean, its closer to a Peets blend if anything.
Fortunately, they do sell the Australian roast on online, since it will be hard to go back to the office swill after this!
G’Day Australia indeed!
