My Jacob’s Creek wine tour continues. After an educational day in Adelaide Hills filled with fine wine and artisan cheeses and chocolates, it is time for me to explore another wine region in South Australia. This time I am heading down south, a long 4-hour journey to Australia’s finest ‘Red’ center. Well, red wine that is. Coonawarra, best known as one of Australia’s finest wine regions.
But first things first, coffee is calling and we make a quick stop at Mount Barker as there is this cafe called Sazón Espresso that I’ve been told is worth a visit. As we walk inside, the aroma of freshly roasted coffee welcomes us whilst two baristas are busy making coffees for the customers behind the espresso machine. I believe one of them is Jose whilst Oswaldo is the chef in the kitchen, they are cousins who moved from Mexico and started this cafe 3 years ago. We order a flat white and hot chocolate to go, their tempting Mexican breakfast/lunch menu will have to wait for the next visit. As much as I’d like to be convinced they made the best coffee in Mt Barker, I do find my coffee a little weak and on the sweet side.
