Smith Tea + Coffee can be found in a beautiful old building down Batman Walk and like the name suggests they specialize in tea and coffee....and that's it!
Smith is a cafe made for the true coffee aficionado. Along with specialty teas and single origin coffee, they'll soon be roasting their own beans - I cannot wait to try some of their house-roasted coffee! I imagine the area around the cafe is going to smell amazing - roasting coffee is a wonderful smell.
I visited Smith in their first week and it's already become a popular local cafe. Along with specialty coffees they also do "normal" coffees like lattes and cappuccinos so they cater for everyone's caffeine needs!
I decide to try the cold drip ($4.00) on my visit which on this occasion is a Panama Single Origin. This is a lovely coffee, served black with no distractions such as milk, mineral water or ice-cubes. The coffee has a lovely fruity end note and quite a mild flavour. I always find the flavour of cold drip coffees very subtle, almost like a fruity, black tea.
The coffees at Smith will change on a regular basis with coffee from the in-house roastery and elsewhere too. I think it's going to be fun to come in and try different types and styles of coffee as they are on offer.
Like I said, Smith is all about the coffee...and the tea, but if you are hungry there is a (very) small selection of cakes on offer.
You'll find Smith on Batman Walk, off Macquarie Street, Parramatta. At the moment they are only open Monday to Friday.
