Great service with a smile and the renovations look good.Coffee of high quality and always plenty of locals passing through. Seems to me that this is a little gem of friendly charm and good conversation and should not be missed. The guys serving seem to really enjoy what they are doing.

Local steered me to this place. No inside seating at the moment (late Feb 2017) but it's a quiet area and good sidewalk seating with a very chilled atmosphere. Coffee is top shelf.

Hey Mishca K Yeah we are renovating the interior of the store. We decided against closing entirely and opted for a coffee cart out the from door. Apologies that we couldn't give you the full experience. Cheers Glen More

Loved this place for their cold drip coffee (made on the premises, served with soda water...fantastic on a hot day) and their delicious kombucha. Really nice atmosphere a bit off the main drag at Port Douglas, and friendly staff.

Stopped here for a coffee after reading the reviews and it lives up to the hype. Coffee delicious, highly recommend. Not worth going elsewhere.

This is hands down the best coffee I have ever had, being a coffee snob I keep coming back for more. Its smooth with no bitter after taste and the service is exceptional! Very cool place to have your coffee at. I love it here. Friendly staff. Thank you!! :)

Amazing little coffee spot with a awesome chilled out vibe, coffee is great and as a traveler the quality Wifi is a great comfort. Sitting outside at the funky tables and stools with the Port Douglas breeze is the best way to enjoy your coffee here. we will be back!

Look, I love a good coffee as much as the next person. Origin Espresso delivers every time. Great for hangovers, pending busy days, hot weather, medium weather. The beans are roasted locally, and Glen knows his way around creating a great mix. He also likes cars and talking rubbish. SUPER! A funky space, always full of happy people. The food... More

As always I get a city-quality coffee but in a tropical retreat atmosphere and environment. Love the "code of conduct", wish we could implement it at our workplace! No burgers on the menu now though? I gather you have a valid reason but they were so nice!

Thank Angus W
