SYDNEY | Edition Coffee Roasters Darlinghurst is what happens when Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics and food merge. Stepping inside the venue, you notice that the space is small and simple. It’s all white, light wood and clean, simple lines. It’s basic, but at the same time very clearly thought out.
Look to the counter and you’ll see a selection of tasty looking pastries, along with a range of coffee paraphernalia. Unsurprisingly given the name, Edition Coffee Roasters take their coffee seriously. Whether it’s an espresso based drink, Japanese cold drip or experimental batch brew, you’re covered. Beans are sourced from Latorre & Dutch and roasted on site. Tea is no afterthought either, with a range of interesting teas on offer, including some quite rare choices from China and Japan.
Owners Daniel Jackson and Corie Sutherland draw their inspiration from Scandinavian restaurants like Noma, amongst other places and their Sutherland’s extensive travels through Japan. Some dishes are purely Japanese, some are Nordic and others are a skilful blend of elements of both. The menu is small and focused, containing only around 8 seasonal dishes at any given time. You can get an idea of what to expect by looking at the ingredient listing of the smørrebrød of sake cured beef, pickles, activated seaweed, blackberry, burnt butter, or the “Yakuza’s Breakfast” of matcha hotcakes, passionfruit, roselle flowers and native honey ganache.
For those who are tired of seeing smashed avocado and eggs on toast (and for those who aren’t), Edition Coffee Roasters is well worth a visit. You’ll be rewarded with some of the most innovative food in town.
