A $16 Cup Of Coffee Is No Joke At This Sydney Cafe

Coffee aficionados rejoice, Canberran coffee brew master, 2015 World Barista Champion Sasa Sestic has opened shop in Sydney.

He's the barista behind the newest stripped-back cafe hotspot ONA Coffee Marrickville, but before you act so Sydney (read: will drive for good coffee and a fancy pastry of some sort), you might want to take a look at the menu prices. The coffee options on ONA's 'Vintage' menu range from 9 to 16 bucks a pop - and that's not for a bag of coffee beans but for a literal cup of coffee. 

50 to 100 customers a day are investing in a $9 through to $16 coffee on the weekends, according to Sestic, who argues that if people are happy to fork out the cash to sit down for a good glass of wine, there's no shame in doing the same for a fine cuppa coffee; his Vintage blends aren't ordered to-go - customers will typically sit for a 15-minute coffee tasting experience to really appreciate their $16 bucks worth. 

Sestic's standard coffee menu also features your usual suspect milk coffees for around $4 a cup, but if your go-to order is a weak almond milk mocha, probably best to steer clear of this joint - Sestic takes his coffee seriously. 

Think that's a bit rich? Head down to the World's Biggest Espresso Martini extravaganza (Monday 1 Oct) to get your hands on FREE martinis and coffees.
