Salvador Coffee Roasters


by Cyrene Cabantog

When a man locks himself away for six months working on a bean blend, you know the coffee is serious business. The man is Marcio Brito, and his business is Salvador Coffee, an espresso bar and bean roaster tucked away in the quiet back lanes of Darlinghurst.

The shop front on Kings Lane is unassuming, though you’ll smell the coffee from the kerb. Marcio sources his own beans from selected farmers across the Equatorial zone, including his native Brazil, roasting them all in-house at Salvador Coffee on the upper level of the lofty space. It’s timber benches, whitewashed walls and concrete on the ground floor, but you can glimpse the polished Diedrich roaster upstairs.  Marcio’s handcrafted blends have been served by the cup and the bean at Kings Lane since 2012, and there are a few options for food available, but coffee is the main attraction here – and when it’s this good, it should be. A Toby’s Estate alum, Marcio has nearly twenty years’ experience working with coffee, and he’s one of a handful of small roasters taking on the big boys.

Don’t let the warm Brazilian charm and serious lack of dark circles fool you; he lives and breathes coffee, and you only need ask him about any one of his brews to get him going. The ‘Kings Lane’ is the seasonal flagship blend, though five others are also available, each of which you can try in-store; Salvador Coffee is both roaster and showroom, and even offers the beans for wholesale. Seemingly far removed from the bustle and noise of the city, Salvador Coffee is only a short walk from Oxford Street, definitely close enough to drop by for the morning coffee run. Marcio, however, drinks a different kind for every time of the day, so when the coffee is as superior as his, perhaps we should be doing as this particular Brazilian does.
