Lola Coffee is set to establish a new benchmark in Brisbane’s coffee scene.
Opening just last month owners Corinne and Brett Chilcott are bringing worlds of learning to their tiny espresso bar on the south side.
Set in the industrial strip of Woolloongabba, Lola Coffee is nestled amongst other retailers and restaurants in the newly built Trafalgar Lane. Tara Dennis of TD Creative Agency has designed the shop and LBD Construction did an amazing job on the shopfit.
The espresso bar was named after Corinne’s loving aunt, Lola Bertram. Lola was as strong as Corinne and Brett intend their coffee to be, yet Lola remained incredibly generous and humble, everything Corinne and Brett have built their business values around.
What else would you expect from two hospitality and coffee whiz‐kids? “Our focus is espresso” says Corinne, “and house‐baked sweets to indulge in with your coffee.” They will be using Sydney roaster, Coffee Alchemy’s blends on their Victoria Arduino Black Eagle espresso machine, and Zokoko chocolate in their sweets. If that isn’t all, just wait until you see what she does with their affogatos.
Corinne is nothing if not a coffee prodigy. A previous Australian Barista Champion and placing 6th in the World’s she isn’t messing around when it comes to really good coffee. Her extensive industry experience also includes Chocolate Production for Zokoko, Roaster for Morgan’s Coffee, Operations for T2 tea, Head Barista Trainer for Gloria Jean’s Coffee and Toby’s Estate.
And now, after 15+ years of experience, including making coffee all over the world from Romania all the way to Japan, Corinne and husband Brett Chilcott have decided to put their knowledge to the test by opening Lola espresso bar. Corinne says We just want to make really good coffee.
Open: Mon to Fri – 7am to 3pm. Saturday’s coming soon.
