Chinchilla rustles up new espresso bar

THE new-look Rustlers Espresso Bar has opened on Chinchilla’s Bell St.

Rustlers replaces Jamaica Blue and manager Jay Kumar said the focus is on improving the quality of food and coffee while cutting the cost.

Jamaica Blue was owned and operated by the RSL Memorial Club but the club said the franchise agreement was both restrictive and expensive so opted to go its own way.

The new independent espresso bar has had a makeover of both its interior and its menu.

For coffee drinkers, the Jamaica Blue beans have been replaced by a Piaza D’Oro Arabica bean called The Artisan, described as a bold and semi-sweet coffee with a rich finish, as well as an organic offering.

Mr Kumar said the menu had also changed for the better, labelling it as “simple, fresh and healthy”.

Rustlers is open from 5.30am to 3pm from Monday to Sunday.
