Cafe Profile: Comoros Coffee

Comoros Coffee Mascot Sydney

Mascot’s best specialty coffee meets deliciously simple bagels in a light, airy space.

Just a few steps from Botany road, walking in the doors of Comoros Coffee is immediately calming. The beautifully simple space is flooded with natural light and makes a perfect spot to escape the madness of Sydney traffic.

Now, this is not the kind of place that tries to do everything – Comoros is all about simplicity, done well. From the small, considered selection of coffee options and the beautifully presented bagels, this is a menu small on quantity but big on quality.

Owners, Nathan & Sam are no strangers to the coffee industry. Having owned and operated cafes before, Nathan even having worked as a coffee roaster, they come to this business with a clear idea of the type of cafe they wanted to create. Once they noticed that Mascot was an area lacking in specialty coffee, they set about bringing Comoros to life.

This experience and attention to detail really shows in the simple focus of the menu, the clean design and above all – the coffee.

For coffee, we start with the house blend, Cultivar, which has a beautiful malt-like sweetness. While a second option, Wilde brings some more adventurous, fruity flavours. The options don’t stop there, with single origins & guest coffees available as espresso, filter and cold brew.

Speaking of cold brew, Comoros serves theirs on tap – both nitro and still. The heavy, creamy texture is just so good. Yes, for me, the caffeine is really kicking in at this stage, it’s a good thing food is on the way…

For such a simple menu, there are a surprising number of options. Sweet, savoury, chewy & delicious – the bagels (from Smoking Gun Bagels in Woolloomooloo) cover breakfast, lunch and everything in between.

We had both the pastrami with smoked mustard cream cheese and the tomato & basil for lunch. Both were full of flavour and a perfect compliment to the coffee.

Add to this a selection of sweets from Luxe bakery and you’ve got a menu that delivers where it counts.

Named after the tiny coffee-growing island nation of Comoros, near Madagascar, Comoros Coffee is itself a little slice of coffee paradise in Sydney.
