Single Origin – best coffee in Sydney

January 12, 2009

Single Origin Gypsy Friday from Scott Drummond on Vimeo.

Julian just directed me to this great video on the Single Origin coffee shop in Surry Hills, by Scott Drummond (Scott, if there’s a better link, shout and I’ll change).

This little coffee shop is where I start my working day – everyday. Not only does the coffee get me going… but the energy of Gav, Nick, Carly and the others is infectious and sets you up for anything.

In late 2006, whilst at Host, I had the fun task of working on… the site is brought to life with a hand drawn bean stalk that grows from a cup of coffee – and acts as the primary navigation. The site went live back in February 2007 and is still looking good. Mind you I think its time for an upgrade, at least for inclusions of content such as Scott’s video and other spontaneous expressions of Single Origin love…

Graffiti that miraculously appeared prior to the refurbishment over the holidays…

Note: Single Origin re-opens on Monday, 19th January. So I’ll see you there for smiles and yet more shenanigans in 2009.
