Rocklea market's boutique coffee outfit, Black Sheep, has quietly opened a roasting house hidden in industrial Woolloongabba.
Nestled along Norman Street, this roastery and espresso bar is open to the public Monday through Friday. Inside the warehouse space, the industrial fit-out includes timber cladding, copper piping and concrete flooring with tractor seat stools and crate-style tables.
Customers can expect exceptional coffee including Black Sheep's Feeling Woolly traditional espresso blend and Top Paddock seasonal blend. You'll also find top-notch single origins on pour like Ethiopian Sidamo, Honduras El Chollo or Guatemala Volcan De Oro; with beans sourced from Fair Trade and Rain Forest Alliance origins.
*Need to know: those who follow the flock can still find Black Sheep at Rocklea on weekends.
