It just so happens that more days of the week than not these days, I am at a gorgeous and quaint little coffee shop in Hendra, an inner-city Brisbane suburb, with the most immaculate attention to detail and well-dressed staff.
It's also home of the Queensland Barista 2012 and well, the coffee - is unbelievable. Boasting two signature haus blends and ever-changing single origins on offer, I believe I'm about to embark on a unique and a little unexpected journey. A journey, or an education that is awakening the senses to say the least!
It's funny what life gives you. Curve-balls followed by simple pleasures... Aaaaahhhhhhh!
Autumn is here. And the weather is undecided here is Brisbane. Rain for days or humidity - or both. I am looking forward to the crisp, fresh mornings, the inviting smell of warm, roasting coffee or a pot of freshly brewed tea. Soft doonahs, Saturdays in layers, blankets by the TV. Scarves and boots and t-shirts in the sunshine... The multitude of colour on the branches of the Plain trees and the crunchy ones fallen beneath your feet. I look forward to Easter at home with family and Love and a mischievous cat.
