My guest post on Jason Agustina featuring Craft Coffee in Albion!

Tucked away in the back streets of Albion is Craft Coffee, a creative hub of great nourishments and artisanal endeavours. Craft Coffee was born out of the collaborative efforts between the Keller brothers, bridging their love of coffee, food and their family trade – shoemaking. The humble space is shared between the cafe and Brothers Footwear, their shoemaking and leatherworking atelier.

Craft Coffee launched last November purveying delicious Clean Skin brews to the local neighbourhood. Recently they acquired a pre-loved caravan, and hand-restored it into an outdoor kitchen.

Raw timber panels reinforce the rough-and-ready aesthetics of the atelier, producing a sense of cohesion throughout the space.

The vibrant feature wall of botanic illustrations creates a bright and inviting interior, whilst complementing the warm hues of the woods. Exposed copper pipes and stylised draping lights add a touch of industrial chic.

We instantly felt at ease amongst the friendly team; their dedication and passion is apparent and infectious!

The menu is honest and wholesome – healthy dishes done well!

Working closely with the wonderful team at Craft Coffee, the team at Jason Agustina provided a comfortable seating solution that is both functional and befitting to the eclectic nature of the cafe.
Matte black Tricia Dining Chairs pairs beautifully with their custom-made plywood pieces – it’s classic elegance meets robust simplicity.

With sleek lines and sculptural curves, the Tricia Dining Chair is a timeless statement piece that is a great addition to any contemporary set up.

Interesting elements sprinkle throughout the cafe, from tree trunk coasters to wooden origami blocks.

Back when I first moved to Brisbane, Paw Paw cafe (see my 2012 post here) was one of our regular noshing spots on the weekend rotation. However with all the new places popping up right left and centre, we haven’t given them as much loving. Recently one of the pretty ladies at work raved about the new menu as well as the cute mural by dizzylittledotty, so we decided it was time for a revisit.

And now you’ll find us there almost every Saturday haha.

It was a bit too packed to take proper photos of the decor – but bright and gawgeous with a vibrant tropical vibe!

Last August I accompanied my design guru of POD aka Queen of Retail & Branding Sensation to assist with visual merchandising for Westfield Marion! Got a chance to put my doodles to work by drawing small signs for the Asian grocer and food precinct!

Always awe inspiring to watch Catherine weave her magic – from sourcing all the amazing antiques and props, the curation and styling (hand making of props!) to assisting each operator to create interesting food stories – if she had the time to blog all of her work it’ll break the internet!

Here are some highlights from the trip to Radelaide:
