I have to say that Project Black Espresso is an eye-candy. The cafe marries the building’s old school vibes with an ultra contemporary interior. The old school red-brick facade contrasts nicely with the cafe’s minimalistic yet slick look. The decor features a black and white colour palette, with marble and wood details. The space is airy, high-ceilinged and bright, creating a great backdrop for their coffee and food.
Coffee-wise, Project Black Espresso serves Two Square Coffee. On my first day, I tried a flat white with Guatemala beans; my coffee came with a light zing and sweet notes. Flawlessly poured by @BartoszBarista (follow him on Twitter for sure). Due to its size, the coffee house is more of a grab-on-the-go than sit-in spot. The menu is worth checking out. Homemade sandwiches grace the food counter in the tasty company of fresh scones, croissants, and Bear Lemon treats to choose from. This brand new caffeinated gem will pamper your stomach and satisfy your coffee cravings.
It is great to see that the coffee community of Ranelagh is growing. Project Black Espresso will be on my list for the next caffeine-powered round-up of Dubin 6 pitstops.
