Aug 30, 2018

The small community of North Lakes is blessed with an abundance of many wonderful things. The greatest thing we have in spades is magnificent coffee shops. We asked on our Facebook page for your thoughts on the best coffee in town. We took those answers on board and created a short list of hot spots to try.

Coffee Hit – Westfield

We kick off our coffee pilgrimage at Coffee Hit in the new section of Westfield. The award-winning team at Coffee Hit roast green beans once a week to produce glorious coffee beans. Dee Espinoza, North Lakes’ very own barista, was a finalist at the Detpak Precision Smackdown Series in Melbourne, giving Dee claim to the title as one of the best baristas in the nation.
