So, whether you’re planning a visit or just passing through, let me help you discover where you can grab the best brew in town. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you!

Why Coffee in Busselton is Special

It’s not just about the drink; it’s about the experience. The cafes here have a knack for blending local charm with seriously good coffee.

Local Roasters

The Margaret River region has some incredible local roasters who are passionate about their craft. These guys aren’t just making coffee; they’re creating art in a cup. The care and attention to detail that goes into each batch of beans really sets the standard high.

Community Vibe

One thing I adore about Busselton’s cafes is their friendly community vibe.

Scenic Settings

Many of these cafes are in some of the most picturesque spots in Busselton. Imagine sipping your latte with views of the jetty or tucked away in a quaint, leafy courtyard.

Sustainability Focus

I’ve noticed a growing trend towards sustainability in Busselton’s coffee scene. Many cafes are focused on ethical sourcing, reducing waste, and supporting local producers. It’s coffee with a conscience, and it tastes all the better for it.

However, I wasn’t happy that Shelter Brewing serve their coffee in take away cups.

What To Order

The popular coffee orders in Busselton, reflecting the broader Australian coffee culture, typically include:

  1. Flat White: A staple in Australian coffee culture, the flat white is similar to a latte but with a thinner layer of microfoam. It’s known for highlighting the coffee’s flavor and is a popular choice among those who appreciate the taste of espresso balanced with the creaminess of milk.
  2. Long Black: Essentially an Americano, the long black is made by pouring hot water into a cup with a double shot of espresso. It’s a favorite for those (like me) who prefer a stronger, more intense coffee flavour.
  3. Cappuccino: A classic choice worldwide, the cappuccino in Busselton is typically made with equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and frothed milk, often finished with a sprinkle of chocolate powder on top.
  4. Latte: Similar to the flat white but with more steamed milk, the latte is a popular choice for those who enjoy a creamier coffee. It’s often served in a taller glass.
  5. Piccolo Latte: For those who want the richness of a latte in a smaller, more concentrated form, the piccolo latte is a popular choice. It’s a single espresso shot topped with warm, silky milk in a small glass.
  6. Iced Coffee Variations: With Busselton’s warm climate, iced coffee variations are also popular. This includes iced lattes, iced long blacks, and cold brews, which are perfect for hot summer days.
  7. Chai Latte: For non-coffee drinkers, the chai latte is a popular alternative. Made with spiced chai tea and steamed milk, it’s a warming, aromatic experience.
  8. Mocha: A treat for those who love both coffee and chocolate, the mocha combines a shot of espresso with steamed milk and chocolate, offering a sweet and indulgent coffee.
