Hi 32,

We have just taken over at Coffee 32 and are sorry to hear of your negative experience with the previous owners.

We use Laffare beans, and would be more than happy to have a chat.

Hope to see you soon.

What a funny wee cafe.

As a customer and first time patron I was curious to try the coffee here, so I went inside the cafe which was empty at the time to enquire about the coffee they use..
Only to be berated at by an old lady who said they were trying to run a business and didn’t have time to tell me about their coffee in the most rude of tones…if you’re someone who is passionate about your fine cup of espresso do NOT go here…

Super service - friendly plus! Great coffee and has nice home made style biscuits and slices. Don't miss out the ginger crunch - it's just like Mum makes mmmm.

The coffee is consistently excellent but it's the service at Coffee 32 that makes this cafe the daily favourite of hundreds of discerning caffeinistas from the Beehive end of town.

Owen and Marg make a great team. You know you're a regular when Marg gives you a wink before you've got in the door, remembers your name AND exactly how you like your brew.

Can be busy in the hour or so before 9am, but who minds waiting surrounded by friendly locals, a morning paper, and classical music for a grown-up start to the day.

Not only excellent coffee, but a thoughtfully presented environment, good coffee accompaniment foods, support of local artists featured weekly, and a staff who make a point of remembering all of their customers (and their coffee preferences) by name. My all time favourite.
Takeout packaging is nice and neutral and doesn't impact the smell of the coffee with the smell of the paint on the coffee cups!
