Try the new Bronzed Aussie smoothie & frozen yoghurt bar
Approximately twelve years ago a large orange sign depicting the name of a new coffee venue was erected on the Bruce Highway between Maryborough and the small township of Aldershot. This was the beginning for proprietor Jasen Barrie and his new venture 'Sexie Coffie'.
'Sexie Coffie' a popular venue for meals, signature teas and coffee
The business has been known for years for serving its own coffee blends and single origins. Over the years, Sexie Coffie has adapted to different niches in the market. They started by roasting coffee, selling coffee making equipment and gifts at the café site. With the rise of coffee machine use in the home market, internet shopping, and the growth of the coffee roasting side of the business, the business changed to suit customer demand. The coffee is now roasted off site by Duckinwilla Coffee Roasters. The gift and coffee equipment side of the business has been streamlined to the most popular products for customers and recently the space received a welcome change with the introduction of a take away coffee, smoothie and frozen yoghurt bar- called Bronzed Aussie Coffee.
The café has recently been refurbished allowing patrons to choose from an outside covered patio area, or inside in air-conditioned comfort utilising tables and chairs or booth style seating. Another area has been set aside with lounge settees and coffee tables for a more relaxed feeling. Although securing your preference may be more difficult than you think as it doesn't take long before Sexie Coffie is full of patrons!
If travelling with a pet, table and chairs are provided on the grassed area near the car park
Their menu caters for sit down or take-away meal options and gluten free dietary requirements are also available. Choices can be made from cooked breakfasts, sandwiches, wraps, pies and sausage rolls or from a variety of cakes and slices with something for everyone's appetite. A cake and coffee will cost on average around $10.50.
All diets are catered and my coffee was made on Soy
As well as serving cups of coffee, you can grab a bag of beans which can be ground to suit your method of home brewing. There is a good selection of blends, single origins and Swiss water decaf. Bags of your favourite blend of coffee can be purchased in sizes of 250g and 1kg starting at $39.95. Or purchase one of Sexie Coffie's travel mugs or biocups and fill with coffee to go. If you have tried a coffee and want to restock, all blends are available for purchase online through their website.

The morning I called in for a catch up with local friends, I also bumped into friends from Brisbane who commented that they always call into Sexie Coffie as a refresher on their frequent trips to Bundaberg and north.
