Aah, the intoxicating aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans...Fixation Coffee is Tauranga’s only downtown roastery (and espresso bar!), based in a former industrial building on the waterfront in Dive Crescent. One of the first things you’ll see is a LCD monitor on the wall, which shows the state of the play with a batch of beans in Fixation’s high tech imported roasting machine, the only one of its kind locally, that uses 'air flow' roasting.
Inside, is a well furnished comfortable lounge area for patrons. Gregg Thompson has snapped up bronze medals in the NZ Coffee Awards – the latest for his espresso blend called Fix. Fixation's Arabica Coffee comes from various places, including Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, India, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, the Carribean, and East Timor. You can order online from their site, or for more information, phone Gregg on 578 8077 (Better still go taste the crema...)
