Thirty years ago, a town square in Canberra brimming with the customers and tables of three cafe’s was a dream too far. You’ll find this dream in Dickson, where Hudsons, the Rendezvous and Deli Marco snuggle together.
Thankfully Deli Marco removed the concept of bland from my head and from palate. This was a good coffee. Wicked crema. Very strong mouth, and no subtle flavour. On the dark and caramel side without excess acidity. The grind is so fine, you’ll notice fine grains through your cup. This cafe uses a commercial system where roast beans are vacuum packed in small lots and delivered straight to the grinder. That the beans aren’t sitting around going stale is noticeable.
