Hay­ley brews up suc­cess

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRISTIE AN­DER­SON christie. an­der­son@ news. com. au

THERE is a new cof­fee hot spot in the CBD with Alt Brew open­ing its doors in Flin­ders St.

Owner Hay­ley Sut­ton, who also part owns other Townsville cof­fee en­ter­prises such as Baker and Barista in Wil­lows, saw a prime op­por­tu­nity when a space opened up at the base of a large com­mer­cial tower in the city cen­tre.

She said she wanted to bring ex­cel­lent qual­ity with a bit of fun mixed with a bright in­te­rior to pro­vide a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for busy of­fice work­ers grab­bing a cof­fee.

“When they come down­stairs for their cof­fee they are get­ting out of the of­fice for five min­utes and they come in and it’s bright yel­low and they are wel­comed with smiles,” she said.

“Of­fice work­ers def­i­nitely need their cof­fee and it was a great op­por­tu­nity to get a space in the foyer of an of­fice build­ing.

“It al­ready had a good setup, it was in a good lo­ca­tion and we could re­ally ful­fil what the mar­ket wanted with ex­cel­lent cof­fee and good grab- andgo food.

“I’ve heard a lot of peo­ple up­stairs are al­ready talk­ing about my cof­fee.”

The cof­fee shop of­fers sev­eral dif­fer­ent types of cof­fee in­clud­ing cold brew, fil­ter cof­fee and the clas­sic espresso.

Much of the food is home­made and in­cludes jaf­fles, pa­leo slices and sand­wiches.
