Hyper Hyper Coffee

This South Coast cafe does 1950s-style coffee done properly: dark, rich and strong.

Get ready for a serious lift because Hyper Hyper Coffee delivers on its name. In an unassuming shed in north Nowra, barista Pip de Pulford roasts and serves coffee as it's been done in Italy since the 1950s: dark, rich and strong. His weapon? A 1959 Probat G22 roaster, which was hand-built in Germany of rock solid cast iron.

Rather than playing with a stream of ever-changing beans, Hyper Hyper sticks to tried-and-tested classics. There's the Blend 6, an old-school European style coffee, and the Cut Snake, made up of 100 percent Arabica beans. If you're a connoisseur of black brews — short or long — it's the one for you.

In keeping with its simple yet powerful approach is Hyper Hyper's surroundings. The decor consists of milk crates, boulders and, for shade, umbrellas. If you're keen to drink and walk, grab a takeaway and stroll north to Harry Sawkins Park.
