Foster & Black, Fortitude Valley

BRISBANE | Foster & Black was founded by Andrew Foster and Harrison Black in 2015, with the aim of sharing specialty coffee in unlikely places. Over the years, they expanded up and down the east coast, fulfilling their goal by opening up cafes and stalls in shopping malls and outer suburban areas.

Their excellent coffee is roasted at their Fortitude Valley HQ, which also operates as a cafe. This isn’t a cafe to visit for a feed – the focus here is specifically on coffee. There’s the house blend and rotating single origins for black and filter coffee.

All of the main brewing options are available to choose from, most as either hot or cold. If you really don’t feel like coffee, there is iced and hot chai, chocolate, and tea. Alternative milks are also available.

A retail section to the side has beans for sale, showcasing what’s on offer at any given time, along with a small selection of brewing equipment.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
