Melbourne’s cult coffee group, the St ALi Family, has landed in Sydney, with the opening of  Sensory Lab in Bondi. A meeting of the minds of some of coffee’s biggest names, including high profile Sydney barista Emily Oak and World Barista Championship finalist and Australian Barista Champion, Matt Perger, Sensory Lab should be reagrded as a cafe and a tasting space. 

Sensory Lab was the first café to place a distinct focus on specialty coffee, alternative processes and coffee innovation in a more mainstream setting. Indeed, the Sensory Lab store in Melbourne’s David Jones takes a scientific approach to producing the perfect brew. The first Sensory Lab launched in 2009 and quickly gained a cult following. Lab-coated assistants offer customers individual taste profiling and are eager to help the eager coffee drinks discover their favourite type of coffee - offering an experience rather than simply a drink.

Featuring a regurlar coffee menu,  Sensory Lab will also offer other alternative processes, such as Matt Perger’s unique filter coffee creation from the World Barista Championships that sparked emulation worldwide. 

The new Sensory Lab is open on Hall St, in the ground floor of newly built apartment complex, Boheme. With a fit out designed by Cibi, bureau8 and Richard Brownfield, the Lab houses retail and education sections, as well as seating so you can take in your surroundings and caffien in leasuire!

Think of Sensory Lab as like a cellar door for coffee. It’s one answer to the ever-growing questions and awareness of the finer points of coffee tasting.
