Coffee is my guilty pleasure. I love going to cafes and try different variants of coffee. I am very particular in the blend I choose, because I have to admit—I am really picky when it comes to my coffee drink. That is why I am really happy and excited that I have finally found Vella Nero, a lovely cafe shop in Sydney.
Vella Nero offers premium variety of coffee beans that they roast in the store itself. They offer premium Arabica green beans such as Brazillian Deterra, Colombian Water Decaf Supremo, Ethopian Limu, Papua New Guinea A-Kimel and Sumatra Mandheling Kuda Mas.
I have been visiting this cafe for a week, and every time I drop by, I made sure that I try their different coffee blends. The first one I tasted was the Brazilian Deterra green beans. My medium roasted coffee has a good balance of sweetness and nuttiness. The next day I tried out Colombian Water Decaf Supremo and I liked it as well! It has a light with a hint of acidity in its flavour. For those who are into a more refined taste, the Ethiopian Limu beans is the right choice for you. It has richer taste with a hint of sweetness and acidity. On the other hand, Papua New Guinea A-Kimel beans are the most aromatic when roasted. You can easily taste the clarity of the flavour as well. The last blend I tried is the Sumatra Mandheling Kuda Mas, which I must say, my favorite among all the coffee blend I have tasted. It has deep and rich flavour that I totally enjoyed.
Vella Nero also offers designer blend freshly roasted coffee. You can choose from Capuccino, Espresso, Plunger, Costa Rica Hacienda Rio Negro and their Signature Blend. I was able to try their award-winning signature blend when I visited them. It was amazing! I love the sweet and nutty combination of flavors. This coffee blend won 2007 Golden Bean Awards Bronze medal and 2008 Sydney Royal Fine Food Show Bronze award.
Aside from that, you can also check out their menu! They offer scrumptious breakfast, lunch and sweets. I was able to taste their bacon and egg on Turkish roll with BBQ sauce and it was so tasty! I also enjoyed their variety of gourmet sandwiches. Sopressa salami is my favorite amongst all, because I love the combination of aiolo, provelone cheese and rocket.
Vella Nero opens from Monday-Friday, 7am to 4pm and closed during public holidays.
