Collective Roasting Solutions - Pop Up Café
641 King St, St Peters NSW 2044, Australia
For many coffee folks in Sydney, CRS changed the game when they opened up their roasting and production facility. Roasters could rent the space, the machinery, and the production equipment, avoiding the huge overheads associated with opening up for themselves.
CRS opened this space after their first successful pop-up on Enmore road in 2017, and this time they've splashed out on some beautiful interior finishes and ample retail space to show off their member roasters' products. Coffee is available in take-home bags, and you can even buy it green (unroasted)!
The brewed coffee menu changes each week to feature a different member roaster, making them proudly "Sydney's most inconsistent café”. Some hi-tech equipment like the SP9's and Strada machine are signifiers that brewing is taken very seriously here, too.
Bagels are offered courtesy of Smoking Gun, with a variety of smear options. But other than that it's coffee, coffee or more coffee for breakfast.
