About Epic Espresso

Welcome to our obssession

At Epic Espresso we are committed to pushing the boundaries of espresso preparation and perfection. Epic was established after considerable research and development into elite level espresso preparation techniques with the mission of becoming WA’s ultimate espresso bar. Epic Espresso is staffed by a team of coffee purists intent on producing the most amazing specialty coffee for their customers.

Welcome to our madness!

Our Machines

Currently Epic Espresso uses two three group Synesso espresso machines. These machines are Seattle built, handcrafted artisan espresso machines made in small numbers for elite level specialty coffee professionals. There are only a few hundred of these machines produced in the world.

Epic uses one dedicated take-away coffee machines and one dedicated in-house coffee machine and also uses Italian made Mazzer Robur conical burr grinders designed to deliver maximum aromatics into every cup. These grinders reduce heat transfer to the coffee beans therefore maximising full flavours to the final cup.

Epic Espresso also uses an advanced nanofiltration water filtering system that allows for constant monitoring of incoming water. This industrial water filtration system controls water quality. Epic Espresso also has individual reverse osmosis filtration systems for each of the Synesso machines.

Epic use ACF Italian made ceramic cups; these cups are designed for maximum heat retention and are robust for high volume commercial use.

Currently Epic Espresso use Pullman barista tampers hand built by Greg Pullman himself. These tampers were partly designed in conjunction with Epic Espresso baristas in a pilot program between Greg and Epic Espresso.

Our Coffee

Through a series of intensive cupping sessions of quality single origin coffee beans, the Epic Espresso Team has customized its own unique blend of coffee. This blend is freshly roasted locally by 5 Senses Coffee and delivered multiple times weekly. All coffee beans at Epic are aged in-store for optimum extraction, shot stability and performance and overall taste profile in the final cup.

The Epic blend is comprised of 100% Arabica beans that are sourced from the highest quality estates from all over the world. They are simply the best of the best. Essentially, the Epic Espresso coffee blend has been engineered to fuel the fanaticism of the obsessive Epic baristas!

The Epic Espresso custom blend is incredibly sweet, has huge chocolate notes, a full body, subtle acidity and a syrupy smooth finish. Perfectly suited to espresso but also performs well in other brewing methods. The blend is packaged in light resistant one way valve bags and is available in-store daily in take-home packs of 200 grams or one kilo.

Our Hot Chocolate

Epic has sourced its own blend of Belgian couverture chocolate which is used in all Epic’s chocolate based drinks. This blend of the highest quality pure Belgian couverture is melted down and features a rich smooth taste due to the high proportion of cocoa butter.

Epic also has introduced the L’ Angelina hot chocolate which is named after the famed Angelina Café in Paris. This hot chocolate is inspired by Café Angelina and is created in a traditional French style using fresh cream, full cream milk and Belgian couverture chocolate. This very rich, thick and smooth hot chocolate is an experience in decadence. Quite simply, the best hot chocolate you will ever taste in your life!

Epic’s signature Belgian couverture chocolate blend is also available for purchase in the store so you too can re-create this amazing hot chocolate experience at home.
