Cafe Review – Industry One Coffee Roasters, Cairns Australia

I’ve already lamented the lack of seaside cafe dining in Cairns and if a trip to the northern beaches like Palm Cove is not on the cards but getting your coffee fix is, then Industry One will not disappoint.

Industry One Coffee Roasters Cafe Review

It takes a lot to drag us away from our favourite cafes. We’ve got quite a list in the Cairns area now and sharing the love can be stressful… you know what I mean?

Industry One is that cafe of convenience. It’s probably not the first place you’ll head to in Cairns if you’re on the travelling trail but as much as any of the top cafes we’ve been to in Cairns Industry One rarely delivers less than a sublime coffee. There are actually 2 Industry One locations, the Espresso Bar in Portsmith and the one I’m reviewing here is the more convenient as it is tucked away just of Cairns’ main commercial thoroughfare, Mulgrave Road. It’s geared for… wait for it… industry. Light meals such as toasties and some mouth watering house made cakes and muffins. But, the coffee… oh my god, not sure what it is. There’s a caramelly note to it (is that wanky?) and I don’t remember receiving a latte that wasn’t stretched to perfection. They also do barista courses… which is something that has been on my list for awhile… maybe this is where it gets checked off. So if you just what a f##king good brew, here ’tis.
