Best coffee in Canberra!

Recent research tells me coffee is actually good for you – which is GREAT news because caffeine (in addition to being my favourite thing in the world) is essential to my writing process.

Here are my fav spots in Canberra to hit up when I need that perfect espresso to get another chapter out…

Coffee 1

ONA Coffee House – This goes top of my list because it’s a must for the true coffee aficionado. The founder of ONA coffee won the 2015 world barista championships and in 2016, ONA barista Hugh Kelly won the Australian barista championship. If you want to buy some beans to take home with you, The Hitman makes a great coffee on your home machine. ONA cafes The Cupping Room and ONA on the lawns are also great for a coffee stop.

Mocan and Green Grout – I love it here! Great cozy vibe – tick! Perfectly brewed coffee no matter whether you like it with or without milk – tick! Watch the chefs make your food fresh in front of you – tick! This place has it all.

Lonsdale Street Roasters – these guys have a few places around Canberra, but I find the best coffee at Lonsdale 7 in Braddon. Another location with a great vibe and baristas who know their craft!

Farmer’s Daughter – when I branch out from a long black to a soy latte, this is the place for me. You can find them dotted around Canberra – far and away the best coffee stop in Canberra Centre if you’re doing a bit of shopping
