Who loves coffee? Who's been wondering why Northbridge doesn't have any decent coffee? I have been doing that so it was quite a stroke of luck that I found out Frisk Espresso on Francis Street was serving up Five Senses Coffee with Bannister Downs milk at the same time seeing it appear on Spreets. From that, I had a feeling our brothers in Frisk aren't beginners in the latte art culture.
So anyway, we're here to review their group buy etiquette, not just the coffee which was excellent by the way. The deal - 20 coffees to be redeemed within 3 months from the date of activation (you turning up and saying, where's my coffee?) for $20. Sounds good? Great if you live in Northbridge. Something to chew on if you don't go down there much.
I did some thinking throughout the day, watching how people responded to the deal. It wasn't a massive response like, say, The View Restaurant in Fremantle but it was climbing up. What if I miss out? I took the plunge and forked out my credit card to have $20 plucked out of its credit limit.
When I went to "activate", there were no dramas and I was curious how they would record the 20 cups. Well they just gave you a loyalty card with a flimsy Spreets piece of paper with your name sticky taped to it. Wow, don't lose that piece of paper! The cafe is pretty funky with street art on the side, water drums doubling up as lampshades inside and cable wheels used as tables outside. Couches were mixed in with primary school desks in a dimly lit shop playing artsy music. Nice place to use free wifi in Perth.
Rules to the game: If you want to get a large coffee, its going to cost you two stamps. You can only use your card once a day. You got three months to do it in. Go!
