In our 2009 feature, we rated Russell Beard’s The Source as best 'up-and-coming' and there's no doubt this promise has been fulfilled… amongst the beamers and botox of suburban Mosman , this shrine to Sydney coffee deservedly claims its place in our official Top Five. Russell and the team offer up consistently excellent coffee [including Clover] and despite the cafe often being filled to the brim with patrons, they still roast on site, choosing to maintain complete control over the coffee process from bean to cup rather than succumbing to the desire to fit more people in – a 'less is more' approach in stark contrast to the otherwise dollar-driven backdrop of Mosman. The beauty of this, of course, is that on most days customers can interact with the roasting process whilst drinking some of those very same blends and origins. The staff are friendly, yet extremely professional and although coffee is their main business, the food is equally as impressive. A coffee haven such as this is a rare find on Sydney's North Shore.
Great coffee. Helpful knowledgeable staff. I buy my beans from here since moving to Mosman from the Northern Beaches 3 months ago.
