Tailored Coffee Experiences

We came up with the concept of Haven Specialty Coffee in 2014, before we even arrived in Sydney. Originally, we wanted the focus of our coffee café to reflect our passion for specialty coffee by serving coffee only. However, since experiencing for ourselves the high demand for breakfast and brunch spots in Sydney, especially in the hipster Surry Hills area, we realised we had to think bigger and expand our menu.

Our coffee café in Surry Hills, Sydney has a unique approach for the breakfast and brunch menu, and our 20+ years living in Asia inspires it. Our familiarity and love of Asian cuisine allowed us to curate a menu that was creative and unique in its flavours but fit in with the spirit of Surry Hills. What was most important for us, though, was that the menu still held specialty coffee at its heart.

This resulted in the creation of our Asian fusion coffee café in Surry Hills, which celebrates the best of Asian cuisine blended with the essence of the trendy brunch scene in Sydney.

At Haven Specialty Coffee, we believe that good coffee starts with YOU.

We came up with our own method of coffee brewing that we have named Coffee Tailoring. This concept was developed by two of our owners - one if a former Sensory and Visual Judge of world coffee competitions, and the other is an individualist who strongly believes that the best coffee in the world is the coffee “YOU LOVE”.

Our Coffee Café offers tailored coffee, and it is about how we perfectly brew. We use quality single origin beans and expert barista skills, but the key ingredient is the customer’s unique preference. This way, every coffee is different, and to an individual, their coffee is exactly how they like it.

We believe that coffee is your Haven and we encourage you to “LOVE YOURSELF & BE YOURSELF” in everything you do, right down to the coffee you drink.

The teacher was lovely. Very personable and informative.
The venue was modern and groovy. Loved the pottery cups.
The 2 hours flew by and we learned a lot . But realised it will take a lot of practice to get any good

We had Katie as a teacher and she was very passionate and knowledgeable and personalised the class for us. We had previously completed a basic class many years ago and have been using a home barista machine for 7 years now.
Katie picked up from what we knew and gave us more information on coffee types, equipment and latte art styles. She helped with our technique and modelled each style. We had plenty of opportunities to practise. Fun, enjoyable way to improve our barista technique as enthusiastic home baristas!

This class was great! We started with a lot of really interesting information about coffee and then got to make a whole lot of coffees from making the espresso shots to the latte art. The only thing I didn't like was all the coffee that went to waste

Latte Art Class for Beginners

Jenny was easy-going, patient and meticulous in her introductory class. Learning directly from a full-time barista gave us a more practical and operational perspective on how coffee is perfected in a coffee bar. We felt like Jenny managed to cover more than we expected in 2 hours, and had a nice amount of time allocated to tamping, frothing, machine handling and latte art. Overall we are really satisfied with the session and will not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone who wants to be introduced to latte art, directly in a cafe! (p.s. Location is perfect, right beside central station)

Had an amazing time with the wife learning all things coffee with the lovely Jenny from Haven Specialty Coffee. Loved the knowledge and skills taught to us. From the reasons behind the types of cups to the intricacies of coffee beans and milk temperature. By the end of the class we were able to froth milk, pour consistently and we're even able to create a heart, an onion heart and a Rosetta latte art

Latte Art Class for Beginners

I highly recommend this class! The teacher was very good and could answer any questions that we had. Holding the class in Haven was really nice as it was small and more personal. We learnt how to make an espresso shot, froth milk and also learnt some simple latte art designs! Highly recommend this

Latte Art Class for Beginners

Great class for beginners, very relaxed. We had a lovely time with Katie taking us through the heart, line heart and Rosetta designs. You practice one at a time with Katie watching and helping as you go so you’re very supported. Good tips and gives you a great base for practicing at home if you have a coffee machine. Thanks Katie!

Latte Art Class for Beginners

Great class, beautiful venue. Our instructor, Jenny, was fantastic! Class size was six people, and we had enough time to practice basic techniques and for each person to complete heart and onion heart designs twice, as well as be shown how to do rosetta and swan designs. Would highly recommend for coffee enthusiasts looking for an introsuction to latte art!

Simon Luong

Latte Art Class for Beginners

We had a fantastic time learning everything we could about coffee. Our teacher gave an overview of coffee and really focused on the details of how to get flavour out of coffee grounds, as well as giving advice on what to spend money on what devices to invest in. He was incredibly helpful in correcting our technique for using all the machines as well as making the latte art.
