Must Try coffee
(Click play on the video above to see the full experience.)
Leible coffee is this really small coffee joint on York street in Sydney CBD area that’s perfect for people to grab and go. There are tables and stools for people to eat on location and sip their coffee, but for the most part this is a walk-in-walk-out set-up where you’ll get what you order fast and go about the rest of your day. Which means, no decor, customer service or bells and whistles are going to influence your perception on the coffee. It’s either good, or its not.
And it was good.

The sleek simple lines and cool colour scheme of green, grey and white makes Leible a suave looking hole in the wall coffee joint. They have a selection of a few pastries and two different bagels for someone looking for something more substantial. I got a soy cap as well a pukka avocado bagel. The bagel was dense. It had a good hefty weight to it in my hands as it was filled with dukka and avocado. The bagel itself has a nice toasted crisp and a bite to it. A solid lunch option for anyone looking for something small, portable and quick.
But the food isn’t the main attraction here. It’s the coffee. Leible’s coffee roaster is by Yama Kim, Australia’s first World Cup tasters champion. Honestly, I don’t know much about the coffee world, which is surprising because I drink so much coffee. But I do know world champion of anything has to be a sign of quality.
And my soy cap tasted like quality.
The coffee was really complex with a lot of different notes coming through. I had fruity, nutty notes as well as roasted toffee and it made the cup super interesting.
Highly recommend for any coffee lovers that haven’t tried Leible yet.
