Straight Up Coffee Roasters

♥♥

Corona Update

Straight Up is offering takeaway food and coffee during the lockdown. We are buying their excellent roasted coffee beans and making our own filter coffee and have been enjoying the experience.

Straight Up is a pleasant place to drop in for a very good coffee, breakfast, lunch or a light snack in the Hobart CBD. They take their coffee very seriously and there is always an interesting selection of gluten-free (all dishes are 100% gluten-free) and vegan snacks (all dishes are either vegetarian or vegan) to accompany your caffinated beverage.

We like the fact that they take sustainability very seriously and have a full recycling program in place.

They have a revolving choice of single origin coffees including the interesting Guatemalan La Esmeralda. Another estate that caught our eye was from Brazil supplied by Lelena Oliveira, a woman who has been growing coffee beans for almost 60 years.

Her estate is called Sítio Moinho Grande and it sits at over 1100 metres above sea level in the mountains between Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in the state of Minas Gerais. She has approximately 16000 trees. She also processes her beans naturally.

Straight Up do their own coffee roasting at another premises in Moonah.
