Spring has sprung! Here's what we're up to.

Tomorrow morning (Saturday September 9) Mishka and Rachel will be manning our first test-run Suspension stall at Kings Cross Market, from 9am to 2pm. We won't be selling coffees this time, the focus will be on showcasing a selection of our retail beans and FREE ESPRESSO TASTINGS.

An espresso made by Mishka is by far the best way to experience our coffee. Can't think of a better start to a Saturday, tbh. If you can make it down, please come find us and say hello.

The lovely folks at noissue (manufacturers of sustainable packaging and printers of our striking new take-away cup stickers) featured us on their blog, The Wrap. If you have an interest in packaging, branding, and good design, it's well worth a click around.

Some sad news for Islington: Pino's Italian is closing down, and Newcastle is losing a unique restaurant with beautiful options for omnivores and vegans alike. We wish Dion and crew all the best for the future. Of course, this abrupt closure also affects our Newcastle-based customers, as Pino's has been a solid partner over the past year: pouring Suspension espresso, selling our retail beans, and acting as a local pickup location for online orders.

After this week, Suspension will temporarily be without a pickup location in Newcastle. We're in talks with a few local friends and should be able to rectify this shortly. We'll keep you posted! (UPDATE: Our new Islington pickup location is Vego's!)

If you have questions regarding future orders, or have suggestions for new retail and pickup partners in Newcastle, let us know!

Suspension in the news! Last month the Newcastle Herald published a lengthy feature on Mishka and Suspension, focusing on the history of the old cafe, our approach to life and coffee, and the future of our iconic roastery. The online version is for subscribers only, but if you ask nicely we might be able to provide you with screenshots.

We were pretty stoked with it. I mean, check out this headline/portrait combo:
