Coffee review: Two Seasons

Pacific Fair, 34 Hooker Blvd, Broadbeach Waters QLD 4218

How many times have you been at the shops and longed for a great cup of coffee to get you through the battlefield of slow moving pedestrians, prams filled with crying children and despondent boyfriends dutifully following their beloved from rack to rack?

Sitting like an island oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Two Seasons is a beacon of hope for the caffeine-starved shoppers who not only want that sweet kick of energy from their brew, but great flavour and consistency too.

Owners Ryan and Lily Sterling feel there is a need for more specialty coffee in Australia, which is what drew them to the Two Seasons brand after a lifetime in the hospitality industry working at other people’s cafés.

“It’s very different from what people expect from a coffee company, with consistency being the biggest focus for us” reported Ryan. With eye-catching colours and branding that includes a bright wrap around their two La Marzocco Strada 3-group machines, Two Seasons certainly stands out amongst the crowd of shopping centre coffee shops.

With their Single Origin under development — which will be sold exclusively as a cold brew — we sampled the Two Seasons Origin blend on our visit, which is selected and roasted by the company in Sydney. An espresso of the blend had a beautiful dark chocolate aroma that carried through in the flavour with a nice hit of tart grapefruit acidity at the finish. As a long black, the coffee was significantly milder in acidity, but still had a nice tang from the oak infused citrus flavour. Interestingly as a piccolo the flavours changed from chocolate to salted caramel, a beautiful little cup to enjoy with a sweet treat.

With plans to renovate in the next few months, Two Seasons will be offering more options to have your coffee including cold drip, cold brew, V60 and pour overs.

Get your caffeine fix the next time you’re at Pac Fair from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Saturday, or 9:00am to 4:00pm. It truly is a caffeinated oasis that can’t be missed.
