Coffee lovers of Perth, this one’s for you—starting Monday 10 August, Subiaco’s cafe scene will come alive with a week-long run of events showcasing its top-notch coffee culture. There’ll be espresso martini takeovers, coffee-making masterclasses and even a next-level barista course for the aspiring pros amongst us.
To kick things off, the team at Eli And Matt Patisserie will be hosting a series of high coffees, as in coffee-filled high teas. Sessions will run twice a day at 10am and 2pm from Monday until Saturday, and it’s a dream come true for coffee snobs—think bottomless cups of joe, coffee-infused scones and coffee eclairs and you’re there.
Next up is the coffee making masterclass at The Little Pantry going down on Thursday 13 August. You’ll leave this barista course with the perfect milk-steaming technique, plus how to flawlessly fine-tune your pour.
Finish off your week with after-work drinks done right at the coffee cocktail takeover on Friday 14 August. Blacklist Coffee Roasters will be slinging their signature coffee cocktails from their Hay Street concept store and the Cupid Catering laneway will be abuzz with cocktails and live music—Refuge Small Bar, Subi Hotel and Hangout On Hay will also be joining the takeover, so be sure to hit them up.
