Redback Online Store

It has been a lot of fun building our online shop, learning what terms like SEO and HTML mean, well we had an idea what they were, now (after building our online shop) we know a little more.

We suspect there will be a few glitches that we need to iron our over the coming weeks but please jump on, take a look and buy what you need to make great coffee at home.

And please write a review or send us some feedback.

Coffee + Tales

Scottie Callaghan is no stranger to the coffee scene having been in the industry for 20 years with a trophy collection that includes the World Latte Art Champion, twice the Barista Champion of Australia and third in the World Barista Championship. “It all started when I was 19 years old working part-time at the Coffee Club in Sydney and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life” he says. “Out of curiosity, I asked the coffee supplier for a tour of their facilities and he agreed to bring me back to the roaster where, for the first time, I saw all these things that I didn’t know existed: green beans, roasting machines, and a cupping lab where I was amazed that the job of someone wearing a white lab coat was to test coffee all day. That marked the very beginning of this crazy coffee journey.”

The seven meals to try in Hong Kong

Australian’s love Hong Kong, well a lot of us live here, I did not realise how many Australian’s live in Hong Kong until we opened Fineprint, it wasn’t long until all the Australian’s around Soho, Central HK found us and loved us.

And we are totally stoked to come across this write up by Ninemsn, 3rd down the page and absolutely wrapped to be included amongst the likes of all the others in this write up.

not coffee – bagels ?

I am Australian, in Australia bagels are not a thing. If you are from many other countries same thing, bagels? Boring. Unless you are from New York, if you are from New York bagels are a thing, a big thing. They are probably a thing in other places I am not aware of :-).

When we opened Fineprint to serve awesome Redback Specialty Coffee we needed great food to match. And we found out how good a good bagel is, so we put them on the menu and haven’t looked back.

Thanks Lifestyle Asia for the 5 best bagels in Hong Kong mention!

Hong Kong’s best coffee for the early riser

I always believed opening a cafe in Hong Kong that opened in the early hours of the morning would be a great idea. So when we decided to open Peel Street Espresso Bar, now Fineprint (same business different name) the choice to open at 6am was a no brainer.

When we made that decision we had no idea how happy the market would be that we chose to do so.

And the guys at The Loop HK agree, thanks guys!

Pepper Passport

We love making coffee and we love it even more when our customer love our coffee. That is why we were totally wrapped on this write up on Pepper Passport. We struggle with the idea of being the best coffee in Hong Kong because we do have a great deal of respect for our competitors and the coffee they produce.

But we are super chuffed that so many people in HK appreciate all our hard work to produce the best damn coffee can.
