In August 2018, Yardstick Coffee held the 2018 Philippine AeroPress Championship from which the winner was recently sent to Sydney, Australia to compete in the World AeroPress Championship.
Philippine representative Aldrin Lumaban competed against 80 others from around the world and skilfully worked alongside 2018 World AeroPress Championship Carolina Ibarra Garay from United States.
While in Sydney, Aldrin had time to go around and tried some of the best coffee Sydney had to offer. If you love coffee as much as we hope you do, then check out Aldrin’s top picks of coffee shops:
One of the many things admirable about Reuben Hills is that their cafeteria and roasting areas are separated. The former is on the ground floor, while the latter is on the second.
Their freshly roasted coffee is paired best with their appetizing food inspired by the owner’s coffee-buying trips in Central and South America.
Australians have a fast-paced lifestyle. This is reflected in the offerings of Fire Station. Their menu is straightforward, making the shop ideal for those who are always on the go. They have vegetarian-friendly food options, too.
