“Have a Nice Day!” Is there any other assurance of this sentiment occurring when there is a cup of your favourite brew nestled lovingly in your grasp?
HAND Coffee, an acronym for said sentiment, was opened in late 2017 by Coast coffee veterans Luke Dempsey and Mitch Kavic who had previously worked together at some of the GC’s top cafes. “When working together we had spoken about setting up our own place. The timing was spot on when the lease came up for this space so we jumped on it,” reported Mitch.
Tucked under a stairwell between Envy Hotel and McDonald’s in Niecon Tower, coffee is the focus, with Mitch and Luke having sampled some of the best beans from roasteries in Sydney and Melbourne before deciding upon Industry Beans and their Fitzroy Street Espresso Blend for HAND Coffee, making them the only supplier of the beans in Queensland.
An espresso is easily the favourite, with a smoky aroma that is reminiscent of a cosy fireplace. It’s the perfect showcase for the sweet orange and chocolate flavours the blend is known for, with a satisfying tang that runs across your tongue.
The chocolate flavour deepens in the piccolo, with the orange tang still peeking through the milk, making for the perfect perk-me-up.
A big seller due to the warm weather is their refreshing and bright 12 hour cold brew, which highlights the citrus and blackcurrant flavours of the Fitzroy Street, making for a cup that is emptied far too quickly on a hot summer day.
Offering some hand-made bites with their coffee. Mitch and Luke report they are “thirsty for more” so expect bigger and better things from them as they grow.
Open 6:30am to 3:00pm Monday to Friday, your favourite brew from HAND Coffee is definitely going to ensure you have a nice day!
