First stop on our Gourmet Safari with Maeve O’Meara was GS Roasting in Marrickville where George Sabados, master coffee roaster and owner made us each a cup of coffee.

He talked about his love of coffee and the challenges of working in the coffee industry, which was fascinating.  George gave us tips on making the best cup of coffee including selecting a grinder, stove top coffee maker, even how to pour hot water into a coffee plunger.

The wonderfully fresh, aromatic and tasty coffee went amazingly well with the gourmet shortbread biscuits and Greek baklava.
