An ode to Outkast post Coachella

So this is usually a space for pictures of nice food and coffees we are serving. But we play more music in the cafe than we serve food and drinks- most of the people that work with us are either devout and hungry music fans or music makers. 

Outkast have been one of the staples on the Fleetwood boom box for the last 2 years. I watched their live stream from Coachella Festival on the weekend, their big come back and first show together in 8 years (also the first show in a 40 date festival tour). Andre 3000 seemed to sort of implode into a vortex of doom. He looked like he was worlds away and really not enjoying it. I hope he finds a way to enjoy the next 39 shows because they are one of the most innovative and influential hip hop groups of all time.
I present here an ode to Outkast with 5 of their lesser known tracks (I believe they call them deep cuts). Enjoy- hootie hoo. Jai

1. SpottieOttieDoplascious- from Aquemini

2. Follow The Light (Dungeon Family) - Even In Darkness
The Dungeon Family were Outkast’s supergroup side project that only released one album. It has some serious jams on it though including this one:

3.  Vibrate (Andre 3000) - from The Love Below

4. Toilet Tisha- from Stankonia
Tell me they hadn’t been listening to lots of Prince when they made this one. 

5. Hootie Hoo- from Southerplayalisticcadillacmusik
Back to 1994 with their first album they made when they were still in their teens.

This guy is on the new menu too: Ricotta, Figs, Radicchio, Sherry Vinegar Reduction, Pickled Onion, Dill.

New Coffees

Just started a new coffee menu last week.

For Espresso we have
A natural processed coffee from Brazil- San Marco De Costa. As well as La Candelilla, which is also a natural from Costa Rica. Not sure how much you know about processing but it is a process of controlled fermentation, wherein the whole coffee cherries are dried in the sun. This can often add body or intensity to the flavour of the coffees. Have a look here on Stumptown’s site for more details on natural processing (aka dry processing).

For Filter we have Gelena Abaya, a coffee from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. This is also a natural processed coffee that we were running as an espresso but now The Golden Cobra is roasting it for filter. We have also kept the Karimikui, a washed coffee from Kenya

Our Spring menu started yesterday. There are some beautiful, fresh, delicious dishes on it. Have a look at the full line up here, but better yet, come in and eat them.

Good Food Month

Just a quick note to say we will be taking part in The Breakfast Club for SMH’s good food month.
More details can be found here.

A few of our head chef Lachlan Peachey’s dishes are featured on a great new food site Dish Pig Magazine, alongside some killer articles and recipes from some of our friends and cohorts from around Sydney. You can now smoke your own eggs at home (just be careful because we got in trouble from the man for smoking them in our backyard) and knock out our gingerbread and quince dish. Photo by Chris Chen

new coffee menu

Just started our new coffee menu last week. For black espresso drinks we are still running the Los Naranjos from Colombia and we now have a La Pira - a Costa Rican Geisha roasted for espresso. In the filter zone we have two delicious coffees; Anselmito Estate Geisha from Panama and a Guatemalan bourbon called El Pintado. We have all these coffees to take home as well as our trusty house blend Debut De Siecle.
