One Drop Specialty Coffee – Fortitude Valley


[ New up to date photos added on March 15th, 2011 ]

One Drop Specialty Coffee is located at the base of the Cardno building / Green Square on St Pauls Terrace in Fortitude Valley. Owners Ben Graham and Blaine Swanborough are seriously passionate about coffee. One Drop sources its coffee from Wolff Coffee Roasters Brisbane. One Drops new house blends origins are Indian / Columbian / PNG and Brazilian. Its been interesting watching One Drop grow over the past year and they are without a doubt one of the top specialty coffee shops in Brisbane.


Quality control is very high here and the staff are super friendly. Since opening its doors last week I have watched it get busier and busier as office workers and locals catch on to this hidden gem. Having lived and worked in the valley area I can tell you that there are plenty of cafe’s but very little decent coffee. One Drop is already standing out in the crowd as one of the serious coffee spots in Brisbane so if your in the valley make sure you drop in. Just don’t sit on the stool in the corner .. thats my seat!

Cleanskin Coffee Co.

When the former owner of one of my favorite cafe / roasters (caffeine espresso) decided to open up his own roasting operation I had high expectations. When I sat down with owner Mark Pearce and a few other espresso addicts for some sample shots of his new espresso blend “re:hab” I was blown away. Seriously, it was the best kick in the face double shot latte I have ever had. The standard of quality in this blend alone has raised the bar of what I consider a quality cup of coffee.


Cleanskin Coffee Co have many different blends on offer including my favorite single origin of all time their direct trade cuban blend which you absolutley must try. For more info check out
