Suspension Espresso

This is a serious coffee house!

Suspension is extremely popular and for good reason. With groovy reggae music playing, great local artwork on the walls and amazing coffee, it is sublime. The back courtyard is a secret hideaway shaded by green trees, it's a lovely way to spend an hour or two on a sunny afternoon.

If I were to go to coffee in Europe, this is how I would imagine it to be. With vintage plush lounges and mismatched furniture it sets a really unique, artistic mood. They have a small kitchen and a breakfast and lunch menu, but I am yet to try their food. Did I mention they have free wifi?


Of course I always expect Suspension coffee to be exceptional and it always is! For a mere $2.50 I ordered a double espresso. It was deep and robust, smooth and had a delightful zing as it went down. Perfection in a cup. I really loved the teaspoon it came with, it is this attention to detail that puts the finishing touches on the whole experience. At home, I brew my coffee in a plunger strong and black and Suspension is my local supplier for my coffee grounds. I always buy the Single Origin, a different one each time. At the moment I'm drinking Costa Rica, but I also recommend the Organic Peru: 250g for about $12.50, so worth it!
