In a city that seems to thrive on caffeine (although what city doesn’t) there’s always a place for another coffee shop. Although what’s quickly been learned is that there’s only a place for another coffee shop if it brews a quality cup of Joe.

The Espresso Workshop has been on the Auckland coffee scene for some time now, in fact since 2007, so it’s no understatement to say that here you’re guaranteed of a good cup of coffee. The Espresso Workshop was founded with what might seem like a fairly simple goal: to unlock the flavour potential of specialty coffee and to promote premium single origin coffee. Turns out achieving that goal is no mean feat, but these guys have achieved it, probably because they offer coffee on the basis of a belief that it is not simply a product, but an entire experience.

Certainly you can pick up a decent flat white or long black on the run, but if you’re happy to linger and try different blends and brewing methods then that’s on offer too.

A prime example of how focusing on one product and doing it well can be so successful, the Espresso Workshop covers all the bases when it comes to coffee taste, service, knowledge and experience.
