Coffee at Photospace Gallery
We're not operating as a cafe, but we're happy to make you a coffee to enjoy while you browse the artworks in the galleries. There's now somewhere peaceful, Koha (a donation) for a coffee is appreciated.
We are using Wellington Coffee Co-op's Tui blend - a rich, darkish roast with deep, smooth chocolate undertones. The beans are fair trade and organic.
Coffee is available when the gallery owner (the short, grumpy, beardy guy) is in and feels like making you a cuppa. The espresso machine is usually shut down by 2pm or so, as a safeguard against insomnia.
Flat white – a safe choice
Latte – as above but milkier
Long black – good choice if things are running well
Espresso – as per Long Black
Macchiato – marked difference from above
Ristretto – for the aficionado
Aficionado - not actually a coffee type
Americano – similar to long black, but longer
Cappucino – if you insist, but no sprinkles
Hot chocolate – tempting, but no
Soy or Trim milk – what do you think this place is?
Decaf – no, no, no!
Frappucino – try Starbucks
