Shakey but not flakey

Brit­o­mart stal­wart serves up the goods in a myr­iad of ways

In the coolest precinct in the city, the coolest café in the precinct – early adopter and neigh­bour­hood cor­ner­stone Shakey Isles – is right up with the play in terms of serv­ing eth­i­cally sourced and pro­duced food and cof­fee. That means or­ganic, free range and Fair­trade wher­ever pos­si­ble.

Ex­plains man­ager Rob Rivers: “We be­lieve that to make the best prod­ucts, you need to find the best in­gre­di­ents. Cof­fee is our pas­sion and we are al­ways go­ing above and be­yond to source the best qual­ity sin­gle ori­gin beans for our spe­cialty cof­fees. Th­ese beans are or­gan­i­cally grown and we are care­ful to choose those that are Fair­trade.

“Al­though th­ese prod­ucts are slightly more ex­pen­sive we be­lieve that more time and nur­tur­ing goes into them, re­sult­ing in a su­pe­rior qual­ity good. It is great to see that more peo­ple are buy­ing and more im­por­tantly car­ing about or­ganic and Fair­trade prod­ucts, re­sult­ing in an eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble sup­ply at a com­pet­i­tive price.”
