Guess who’s back?
With the opening of their fifth café, the kids at Eighthirty are at it again, giving the good people of Auckland another reason to fall in love with their favourite drink.
Tucked on the bottom of Anzac Ave, the newest flagship is a testament to founder and co-owner Glenn Bell’s love of good design and precision. Following the classic minimalistic style and attention to detail, with white walls, concrete floors giving the 1920’s Tasman building a clean fresh feel. However, stepping away from High Streets bold pink colour scheme with a strong monochrome fit-out, complete with pristine black counters, steel wire furniture and two white LaMarzocco machines.
Hooked up to reverse osmosis water filters, gone are the days of receiving a coffee without the ideal mineral-water ratio. The team taking coffee precision to the next level with the countries first Modbar pour-over taps, allowing them to program the perfect water quantity, speed and temperature for your V60 or chemex.
Although the show stealer is undoubtedly their state-of-the-art Loring coffee roaster. The second in New Zealand, this California-born masterpiece not only looking impressive and important, but also allowing Eighthirty to treble their wholesale output.
Don’t worry foodies, if the coffee speak has your head spinning then take a seat and be comforted by a range of toast-centric offerings. Rye to sourdough, brioche or Midnight baker, Eighthirty Anzac has you covered. Cabinet needs being sussed by Dominion Road’s Ginger Bird Bakery.
So if you want to see the place what happens when scientific precision, swiss interior design and excellent coffee meet (or if you just want to see what all the fuss is about) then get on down to Anzac Ave.
