Moon Rabbit is an environmentally progressive social enterprise cafe in Preston, who we have been partnered with since their launch in early 2018. We’re incredibly proud of this partnership, and of the team at Moon Rabbit who constantly inspire us with their committed, passionate, innovative and generous approach to café life. Monday October 5 marks the launch of their mobile café, aptly named “On the Hop”, which will be servicing the inner north!
A little while back, we cupped a selection of delicious coffees provided to us by Sucafina Specialty, and this coffee from Timor-Leste was the standout on the table. Whilst we’ve showcased Southeast Asian coffees before, this is the first time a Timor-Leste specific coffee has made its way onto our menu! Steve from Padre Queensland created two recipes for brewing with this delicious coffee.
Recently we had the privilege of collaborating with Melbourne-based company Chai Addict on a new product for their range of chai concentrates. We’re thrilled with the resulting Dirty Chai, which brings coffee and chai together in the best way that we’ve ever tasted. We spoke to Chloe Janson, founder of Chai Addict, about the collaboration and discovered why she’s so passionate about chai.
Following on from the popular return of the Ethiopia Banko Gotiti, we're excited to introduce the Ethiopia Konga Sede! We love its juiciness and honey-like sweetness - it's silky and buttery as a filter and smooth and creamy as espresso. We created two Konga Sede brews - one to inspire the filter lovers, and one to inspire the espresso lovers!
Following the success of our first collaboration with Melbourne band Slowly Slowly, we were excited when frontman Ben reached out for a second collaboration 'Race Car Brews', taken from the title of their newly released album Race Car Blues. Ben’s passion and clarity of vision were just so palpable from the start, he’s the kind of person that gets you excited about whatever it is he’s talking about. We just knew from the get-go that it was going to be a really special collaboration.
The Banko is back! The Ethiopia Banko Gotiti is a firm favourite at Padre Coffee; we first discovered it last season and we're proud to welcome it back to our menu. Charlie created two exclusive recipes for this incredible coffee!
