After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.
Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.
First, and definitely last, visit..........
Tonight, while waiting near Brisbane airport, I decided to try a coffee from somewhere I hadn’t been before. :-X
After ordering, I was distracted by something on my phone and looked up in time to see the barista dip/scoop the group handle/portafilter into an open container of pre-ground coffee! Who knows how old and stale it was??? At the time I was there (half a hour before closing), it could have been hours.
I suppose I should have walked away but had prepaid so said nothing. Decided to vote with my feet and not return.
My usual cafe would never ever do this, always grinding fresh as I guess most cafes would.
I’m guessing the container was excess coffee from overground doses levelled off from portafilters.
Still scarred, 3 hours later. Urghhh.
PS. Tasted pretty ordinary as well..........
