It’s simple. When travelling through unfamiliar territories and searching for decent coffee, be alert for a positive paramedic sign.
If there is an ambulance out front of the cafe and a crew of local paramedics waiting for take-away you can be assured of a decent brew.
If they are ensconced at one of the tables holding a protracted station meeting with a second crew, the coffee is going to be top-shelf.
Not only will the coffee be great, but in the unfortunate event you were to choke out on a large bolus of freshly baked fruit bread there would be professional help at hand. Bonus.
Today’s coffee gratitude goes to Elizabeth Phillips who shouted Kelly and me (buy me a coffee) an excellent brew at Saffs Cafe in Castlemain.
Paramedic and caffeine connection confirmed.
