Zarraffa's Coffee looks like just another coffee franchise, but unlike some that shall remain nameless, it is proudly Australian.

From their humble beginnings as a small, warehouse coffee roastery in Southport, today there are 51 Zarraffa's coffee shops in Queensland and one in northern New South Wales.

We visited Zarraffa's at Greenslopes recently. This outlet is one of the newer ones having opened in September, 2011. While lacking the character and cosiness of an independent coffee shop, it was pleasant enough.

Zarraffa's has an extensive menu of hot and cold drinks, with sixteen different varieties of iced coffees and Fusions (the non-coffee alternative).

I had a latte, which as promised on their mission statement, was perfect. My three year old had a babyccino while my two eldest children had Steamers, flavoured steamed milk dusted with chocolate. Again, the selection of flavours was vast: vanilla, strawberry, caramel, white chocolate, peppermint, and more.

We also ordered some sweet treats from the cake cabinet. The deliciously moist chocolate muffin, lovely lemon meringue tart, and yummy macadamia and lemon heart-shaped biscuit were devoured instantly.

Zarraffa's Coffee still roast their own beans. You can either purchase some from the freezer in-store or at their factory direct outlet at Helensvale, where you can watch coffee being freshly roasted.

As an interesting side note, Zarraffa's has teamed up with Burleigh Brewing Company to create a coffee flavoured lager, Black Giraffe. For more information on this black brew, click here.
