At EAT we chose to use Tim Adams Specialty Coffee as we believe it truly is premium product. Tim really knows what he is doing – he dedication, passion & strive for the best coffee is outstanding.
We all actually go back a far way – we all went to school together at Urangan High in Hervey Bay & many years on we are proud that we all support each other in our careers.
The coffee blend changes seasonly just like our menu.
Originally taking up a position in the coffee and hospitality industry by chance, Australian barista champion Tim Adams soon discovered that the humble cup of coffee was more than just a morning ritual for him; it was a passion.
Intrigued by the entire coffee journey from bean to cup, Tim set about honing his barista skills and immersing himself in all levels of the coffee-making and growing cycle.
After spending a few years in the industry, Tim’s spirited and determined nature drove him to enter a range of state, national and international barista competitions. In 2009, he claimed victory in the AustralAsian Specialty Coffee Association (AASCA) Queensland Barista Championship. Tim then went on to be crowned AASCA 2009 Australian Barista Champion, a coveted title that is recognised around the globe.
Tim has also represented Australia at the World Barista Championship in 2009 placing 13th and is widely recognised as a leader in the specialty coffee industry.
While Tim’s focus eventually moved to launching his own business and his own brand of specialty coffee, he still likes to challenge himself with the odd competition from time to time. In recent years he has reclaimed the 2010 AASCA Queensland Barista Champion title, 2012 AASCA Queensland Barista Champion title and been selected as a state finalist in ‘The Baristar’ competition held across Australia.
In conjunction with wife Katie and business partners James and Angela Pedrazzini, Tim has gone on to launch Lamkin Lane Espresso Bar on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, which is fast earning a reputation as one of the premier coffee destinations in South East Queensland. Tim Adams Specialty Coffee also operates a mobile espresso van in the region, selling its own range of specialty coffee blends at both a retail and wholesale level.
As a dedicated ambassador of the specialty coffee industry, Tim regularly shares his knowledge with budding baristas, offering hands-on barista training.
Cold Press Coffee
This is iced coffee, but not as you know it!
It is made directly from the roasted & ground course coffee, this is liquid gold served in a brown bottle, served ice cold – you won’t be disappointed EAT at Dan & Steph’s Cold Press Coffee takes the flavour of the Tim Adams Coffee beans & transforms it directly to an iced caffeine fix. Extremely smooth, full of flavour & the kick you all love.
To extract this liquid gold, a cold press apparatus is used. Ice is placed in the top beaker, it slowly melts & drips slowly through the course ground coffee, which is then dripped into the bottom – it usually take 8-10 hours to extract over 2L.
This process eliminates the acidity in the coffee & once mixed with Cooloola full cream milk & a touch of sugar syrup – its extremely smooth & inviting. EAT Cold Press Coffee is our own house blend & is hand bottled by us with love.
