The New Paradigm
As many of you may know by now, I live in Melbourne, but I love Sydney.
There are a multitude of reasons for this love, one of which is its thriving coffee community, founded by some of the city’s most beautiful residents.
The New Paradigm is the latest microroaster to enter Sydney’s coffee scene, and it’s impressed me with its steadfast commitment to quality, and pledge to never exploit marginalised folks. Last year they held a fundraiser event in support of Same Cup, where guests enjoyed a feast care of Hara Wholefoods, as well as some take home beans. Unfortunately I was unable to attend, but I was afforded the opportunity to enjoy the beans which were shared with guests on the night. None other than the Costa Rican Gesha from La Candelilla. This naturally processed gem is bursting with fruit flavours, and has a sugary sweetness that’s most pronounced as a filter brew.
Here’s to Sydney, naturally processed coffee, and coffee professionals with a vision and faith in decency.
