According to Merriam-Webster artificer means, “a skilled or artistic worker or craftsman.” At Artificer Specialty Coffee Bar & Roastery in Sydney, Australia coffee is a craft. Artificer Coffee was co-founded by Shoji Sasa and Dan Yee (who is also involved with Salvage Specialty Coffee, a coffee bar in Artarmon also near Sydney that’s known for its cold brew coffee).
What Artificer Coffee offers is simple: fast attentive service, delicious coffee made with heart and a spot in the sun where you can enjoy your cup of Joe. The clean minimal aesthetic and Zen like atmosphere make Artificer Coffee a spot where you’ll see Redfern and Surry Hills locals imbibing in their daily caffeine routine.
If you happen to be a passionate coffee enthusiast, Artificer is the place in Sydney to snag a mug. Speaking of mugs, artificer sells lovely mugs from local Sydney based artist Emi Tanaka of Ceramic Studio En.
Just don’t head to Artificer if you’re hungry. (We highly recommending heading over to Devon Café in Sydney for the brunch coma of a lifetime if you’re in need of morning grub.) The crew at Artificer Coffee keeps this well oiled machine humming by offering only coffee, no food.
Whether you’re a jet lagged traveler or a local on the hunt for caffeine fuel, Artificer Specialty Coffee Bar & Roastery is the place to head for hipster coffee in Sydney’s upscale Surry Hills suburb.
