Having cemented its status as one of Melbourne's most celebrated coffee roasters and cafes, Industry Beans has taken on Sydney's caffeine scene, opening its first interstate location in the CBD last week.

It's made its new home on York Street, complete with a heritage façade, state-of-the-art equipment and its trademark Industry Beans offering of creatively charged food and next-level specialty coffee.

The new venue features the same customised La Marzocco Modbar that put Industry Beans' Little Collins Street store on the map, allowing customers to be front and centre to the coffee-making experience. You can watch the magic unfold as the baristas brew its signature Fitzroy Street blend and whip up treats like the bubble tea-like the specialty Bubble Coffee, featuring coffee-soaked tapioca pearls, cold brew and normal or vegan condensed milk.

As for the food, you can expect a seasonal lineup of cleverly executed dishes that are far from boring. The York Street cafe's southern counterpart has won many a fan for dishes like its coffee-rubbed wagyu burger, fruit sashimi topped with coffee 'caviar', and avocado smash starring beetroot dust and green tea salt — all of which have made their way onto the new menu. That's alongside a few new additions that specifically cater to the work lunch crowd, like the selection of baguettes and avo, broccoli and broad bean green bowl that can be eaten in or taken away.

Expect a finely honed customer experience, too, with a dedicated grab-and-go area and an Industry Beans app, which allows you to skip the queues and order your office coffees ahead of time. Plus, when you sign up, you'll get five bucks credit so you can get your next coffee for nada.

Find Industry Beans at 38–40 York Street, Sydney. It's open seven days a week, from 7am–4.30pm on weekdays and 8am–4pm on weekends.
