I went to Espresso Workshop late morning (about 11:30) with two friends. We left feeling very disappointed.
We ordered three takeaway drinks - 1x extra hot flat white with trim milk, 1x extra extra hot hot chocolate with trim millk and 1x non trim milk hot chocolate, extra hot.
Drinks came after a long wait. I tried my extra extra hot hot chocolate which was lukewarm, as were the other two drinks. We told the coffee girl that they were not hot enough, bordering cold, and would she be able to heat the drinks up in the microwave, however she said she would make them again.
Also the coffee girl made both the hot chocolates trim milk and did not understand when we told her that we only wanted one with trim milk!
Second time round, all three drinks were a little bit warmer, but we all thought it was poorly made coffee/hot chocolate. However, as I started to drink it, I realised that it tasted different to the normal hot chocolates I have had.
I am 100% sure the milk was off. My friend who ordered the flat white agreed also and did not finish her coffee. We were already on the road by this time and feeling very dissatisfied hence the need to write this review.
I thought this place would be amazing, but I am really disappointed and unfortunately, Espresso Workshop will not be getting any praise.
Had a day in the city with the kids during the holidays and needed to start with a great coffee - Espresso Workshop did not disappoint! I didn't buy anything else so am giving these five stars simply because my takeaway flat white was outstanding and I wouldn't hesitate to to get one again - in fact, I would go out of my way if I felt in need of the perfect cup!
Some of the best coffee in town! David is the master of all things coffee - looking forward to plenty of early morning visits to the Espresso Workshop on the commute to work!
