Columbian CoffeeHub/Café 227
As with the last review of this location at 227 North Terrace, the name of the Café is a little ambiguous. The most visible signage shows the name of the coffee suppliers which is now “Columbian Coffee Hub”. This has changed from Lavazza in the previous review, which now provides the Café with a distinct difference from other Cafes. It provides a range of Columbian coffees and sweet treats.
Merkel was pleased to see that hot chocolate drinkers had not been forgotten given that chocolate is also South American tradition. Aztec hot chocolate, Chilli hot chocolate and plain hot chocolate were on the menu. Merkel chose the Aztec hot chocolate which came in a black ceramic cup and saucer. It was topped with bubbly froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The drink was spiced but did not have the kick of a chilli hot chocolate. It was pleasant drink which was not too sweet. The cost was $4.50.
