Relaxed flavours and love
Meet new friends and flavours at Crazy Goat Espresso.
Of all cafes in Toowoomba, Crazy Goat Espresso is the most colourful, laid back and friendly. Deservedly voted Best Café by local coffee lovers, the customers, mostly an alternate crowd, are made to feel loved.
Flavours and more flavours is the order of the day for coffees, heavenly smoothies and icy, refreshing frappes. The flavours are written all over the wall in fun colours and fonts. The list is not limited to: Turkish Delight, Kaldis, Mint Slice, Lavender Dream, Coconut, Rose, Butterscotch and Bonoffer.
Coffee of the Crazy Goat brand tastes mild and creamy but gives a big boost and is served with love by Manager, Lisa. Latte with Tiramisu is divine, mocha coffee is delicious with Swiss chocolate with fifty percent cocoa. For extra special flavour and body, add coconut and almond. Mexican Decaf is non-chemical using a Swiss water-treated method.
Teas are loose leaf: French Earl Grey, Green Tea and Coconut, English Breakfast, Fruit Blend, and Lemon, Lime and Ginger. An additional new range of ten teas is coming soon, to purchase by the bag. Milk choices include lactose-free, almond, coconut and soy.
Shopping includes: baskets made from recycled plastic, mosaic home wares, fabric bags of coffee beans of Crazy Goat blends, coffee plungers, rainbow lollipops, homemade conserves, goat's milk soap, colourful scarves, stuffed goats and beanies. Funky music aids relaxation. Manager, Lisa expertly works the coffee machine in the seating area. Cold drinks are available from the fridge.
Cabinet fare includes Date and Ginger Loaf, Banana Bread, a variety of home-baked cakes, Berry Heaven and Cookies and Cream Muffins; and Fudge Brownies. Protein Brekkie Smoothie gets the day started on a healthy note or perhaps Blueberry Fruit Toast or Egg and Bacon Muffin.
And now to answer your burning question 'Why is this cafe called 'Crazy Goat Espresso?' The answer is upon the wall 'In mixology terms Crazy = Goat & Espresso'. Doesn't everybody?
Another slogan is more pictorial 'Coffee Break Plus Love = Smile'. You'll want to revisit Crazy Goat Espresso for its genuine friendliness and to get to know the new acquaintances you make.
