Henry Ford did say, ‘If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself’.
Such is the case at Collective Roasting Solutions, a collective of independent roasters in Sydney. Their roasting headquarters is based in St Peters, but I was fortunate to visit their pop up cafe in Enmore. On the shelves were roasters such as Artificer, Fine Folk, Skittle Lane, Stitch, and Fossix.
The decor has a minimalistic feel, with ample sample, and all the latest gear to brew a quality cup. No surprise, I went for a Ethiopian long black . This washed Kochere was roasted by Fine Folk, and mighty fine it was. From its Jasmine aroma, citrus acidity, right through to its stonefruit highlights; it was everything I expected from a grade 1 Yirgacheffe.
Collective Roasting Solutions is testament to the notion, that alone we can do only so much, but together in collaboration with like minded folks, the possibilities are endless.
