Neighbourhood by Sean McManus

16 Buckingham St, Surry Hills NSW 2010

There goes the neighbourhood

To call Neighbourhood a cafĂ© is almost overselling it. It’s two dudes, McManus and fellow barista Marc Wiebe, and a coffee machine in an eight-square metre shopfront with a couple of stools and a small bench out on the street. Apart from the occasional croissant from Penny Fours and doughnut from Woah Nelly, the bean is squarely the focus here.

The right tool for the job

Neighbourhood is a destination for coffee geeks and the Surry Hills fashion district elite who come for a quality coffee experience without compromise. With only full fat milk on offer (and a fairly heavy emphasis on black espresso and soft extraction coffee), The Juggler Single dispenser paired with a single door chiller fits the bill perfectly.

The verdict

“It makes me horny”.
