The team from St Ali’s launched Sensory Lab at David Jones in late 2009, with the idea of introducing coffee drinkers to the concept of individual taste profiling, a wider range of different brewing methods and honing coffee-making skills and taste sensations.
The café itself reads like a mad scientist’s laboratory, with flasks and Bunsen burners and apparently the barista even wears a lab coat. It’s aimed at creating a true coffee experience, and invites you to experiment with your own tastes.
You can get a traditional coffee as well, but why not have some fun in the process?
Since opening the concept has gone from strength to strength, now offering the highest quality coffee beans and coffee bean subscriptions – where you can have a supply of freshly roasted coffee beans delivered to you throughout the year.
They have 3 different subscription types the mixed ‘Roasters Choice’, the ‘Light Roast’ for syphons and pour-overs and ‘The Cup of Excellence’ featuring the “crčme de la crčme of coffee”.
Sensory Lab are generously offering one lucky habitusliving.com reader the chance to win a fortnightly subscription to The Cup of Excellence for 1 year, valued at $725. That’s 250 grams of the freshest premium coffee money can buy on your doorstep.
All you need to do is fill in the form below and tell us the story of your favourite cup of coffee in less than 40 words. The most creative/captivating response will win.
