Not simply a cafe, it is also a training space, a technical workshop to service La Marzocco machinery, a production space for picking and packing coffee and most importantly, a shared hub for the local community.
At the core, Allpress value community and high-quality coffee, and the idea of the new space is to combine and create a social hub of collaboration, knowledge, communal connection, and great coffee.
As an international roaster, Allpress feels strongly about its approach to coffee, especially its focus on fluidised hot air roasting, giving a consistent and more tantalising taste, with more focus around coffee flavour.
Open Monday to Friday for coffee, breakfast and lunch, the café has multiple branches, having the space to hold events with partners, coffee training and knowledge sessions.
Allpress Espresso Australian General Manager, Greg Glubb said that after 17 years of roasting in Australia, Allpress is still on the hunt for new opportunities to grow.
“Having a presence in Queensland is a key component of our plan and we have found the perfect location in East Brisbane to establish our long-term home in this thriving coffee market,” said Mr Glubb.
“Our dedicated spaces connect us with the communities we are already a part of, allowing us to better support and serve our café partners.
“The espresso bar talks directly to coffee drinkers and home brewers, as well as showcasing the Allpress experience to prospective wholesale customers.”
Those who take joy in drinking marvelous blends will also be in awe of the space, featuring ample glass fixtures, natural textures and colours. Original Oregon Trusses run through the ceiling, exposed brickwork and Queensland Black Butt timber floors, creating a rustic, modernised and creative space.
Ultimately, community drives the company, because it’s all about bringing people together over a cup of coffee.
