This is something that happened a while ago, but finally here are some photos of the Commonfolk Makers’ Market! A lovely bunch of 18 makers and clever people gathered in the backyard at Commonfolk for our very first market. The weather was rad and a great supportive crowd showed up.

Cheers guys! Let’s do it again.

One year ago today. We will soon be celebrating our first birthday at Commonfolk :^)

What an amazing turnout!
The latte art throwdown on Monday night was a huge sucsess. Barista’s from near and far, slinging the best milk they could muster under the intense pressure. A crowd of 150 strong, cheered on their mates as Sam gradualy lost his voice to the microphone.

Amy Caufield (Via Battisti) took out the prize with her inverted rosetta trumping Shanon Roach’s flawless rosetta, with a unanimous vote from the judges.

$5 beers and cakes and generous donations from the crowd raised over $1000 for Jenga, a community outreach program in Uganda.

We all had a blast and couldn’t beleive the turn out.
Check out the Commonfolk Coffee Facebook for more pictures and posts.

A massive thankyou to everyone who helped out.

Commonfolk Latte Art Throwdown

It has been in the pipe line for a while.

Many of you would have already heard that we are planning a latte art throw down for the coffee consuming community of the peninsula.

It’s going ahead!

29th of April! 7pm

It’s a great opportunity to hang out with people in the industry as well as show off!


1 jug of milk and 1 flat white to show off the best design you can muster.

The design will be judged and the winning contestant will go on to the next round, knockout style.

The last contestant standing will receive the respect and admiration of their peers…

and a Hario pour over kit.

Commonfolk 24/7

It’s been about 2 months now since we first slid open the roller doors to the coffee swilling public and we’ve had a lot of fun. So much fun that we’ve decided to give up our Tuesdays and open 7 days a week starting April!!! The new trading hours for Commonfolk Coffee will be as follows:

Sat - 8am till 3pm

Sun - 8am till 3pm

Weekdays - 6.30am till 3pm

See y’all round for a cuppa!

I am really excited to use this space.

It has been a pretty full on month, and really, this should have come sooner.
But before the coffee rants begin, and this space begins to resemble ‘’, I would like to share with you some pictures I took early one morning before service.

Pictures of the bottomless partafilter, mid pour are pretty timeless in my opinion, captured in glorious high definition. They were pretty tasty too. A great way to start the day. Stop by some time, and I’ll make you one.


The last bit of the Studio build. Thank you to my lovely and helpful family!

The day mega-talent Ben Lopez dropped by with some paint for the Studio wall. Thanks so much BEN! We love it, you freeeaak.
