PAS­SION FOR COF­FEE LEADS TO NEW CAFE

NewsMail - - FRONT PAGE -

WHAT does a pur­ple fruit and a good cup of cof­fee have in com­mon?

This is the ques­tion you ask when you hear the name of Bund­aberg’s new­est cafe, Pas­sion­fruit Cof­fee.

It’s not what you may think. There are no tiny lit­tle seeds that pop up in your cup as you sip. It’s a name that is in­flu­enced from the song

Pas­sion­fruit, by singer Drake. Owner Emily Sauer, 28, had it stuck in her head for months be­fore the cafe’s soft open­ing yes­ter­day.

“The name is lit­er­ally that sim­ple,” Mrs Sauer said.

“I named it after a song. My hus­band finds it ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous but endearing at the same time.”

Mrs Sauer said cof­fee was rit­u­al­is­tic, just as the open­ing line of the song. She said the first thing you reach for in the morn­ing was a cup of cof­fee and along with hus­band Matthew, Mrs Sauer hoped it would be one of their cap­puc­ci­nos or lat­tes.

In­side the side-street cafe, art­work of song­writ­ers, in­clud­ing Drake, and artists dec­o­rate the walls of the eclec­tic cafe that has a fresh­ness to it, that will have you re­turn­ing time after time.

As a cof­fee ad­dict her­self, Mrs Sauer said just like mu­sic, the bev­er­age had to hit your soul and keep you yearn­ing for more.

And the cof­fee is just as smooth as Drake’s vo­cals in the song.

But it’s not only cof­fee that is avail­able at the new cafe. For those run­ning late for work, you can drop in on your way past and or­der a cof­fee and make your own toast as you wait.

“Make your own toast is avail­able for $1 and you’ll be ready for work in a minute,” Mrs Sauer said.

The cafe was five months in the mak­ing and Mrs Sauer is ex­cited about the new ven­ture after putting in the hard yards.

“We have set it up as a take­away to make it easy for peo­ple to pop on and out – or they can sit and en­joy,” she said.

“Peo­ple can phone or SMS in their orders too.”

Pas­sion­fruit Cof­fee is on the cor­ner of Princess and Mary Sts, Bund­aberg East and is open early for the morn­ing rush. For more in­for­ma­tion check out Pas­sion­fruit Cof­fee on so­cial me­dia.
