Brisbane City’s coffee scene is set to score a new top-flight dispensary at the end of July. The crew behind highly regarded Margaret Street cafe Coffee Anthology are putting the finishing touches on forthcoming sibling venue The Maillard Project, which will be arriving on Charlotte Street on Monday July 27. The space is shaping up to be a multi-faceted hub for all things coffee and brunch, with head honcho Adam Wang eager to harness the best elements of Coffee Anthology and take them to up a notch. Boasting a light modern aesthetic across the entire venue, The Maillard Project will offer expertly brewed coffee, a leisurely dine-in service, coffee roasting and barista training under one roof. The cafe will offer an improved version of Coffee Anthology’s brunch menu, with a full kitchen capable of producing dishes that its older sibling’s streamlined set-up couldn’t. Guests will be able to sit in a formal dining space or a casual alfresco portion, free to feast on a mix of Anthology favourites and seasonal and experimental newcomers, as well as the popular breakfast degustation, which will transfer over to The Maillard Project as Coffee Anthology’s kitchen transitions into a pastry kitchen. The Maillard Project will boast three coffee machines – one for takeaway orders, another for dine-in orders (plus a coffee bar for batch and pour-over brews) and a third for training. Baristas of any skill level can book in to practice on the machine, learn more about the art of coffee making from the pros and improve their overall skill level (roasting education will also be available). Adam hopes The Maillard Project’s educational focus will improve the community’s collective knowledge of coffee and help younger baristas find their footing in the industry quicker. We’ll have a closer look at The Maillard Project at the end of the month!
