“What a relief”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I only have one cup of coffee a day so I like it to be good, and Origin delivered. I visited Origin on each of the seven days we spent in Port Douglas and the coffee was perfect. My husband was less impressed with the service on a couple of days he went however I found the service to be friendly and efficient.

We visit Port Douglas each year and as long as Origin remains as good as it is today it feels like I have the best of Melbourne in the tropics. This is high praise.

“No tricks”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

No tricks here - just excellent coffee, the best I had during a week in Port Douglas.
I can't say definitively that this the best in PD, but to better this would be a big ask.

“Best Coffee in Australia? ”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

This cafe focus on what they do best; producing the perfect coffee. Staff friendly and the place is always busy despite its side street location. Extremely relaxed atmosphere, tables are made out of old materials, some chairs are old beer kegs, funny board messages. In other words; the perfect Australian cafe.

“A real coffee experience in the tropics”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I returned to this great coffee place every day for 10 days. Sitting outside under the ferns on a warm day, raining or not was relaxing. If you like good expresso in Melbourne, you will like origin expresso. Service always friendly and if want something to eat have some small great sweets to also have. But the main game is the coffee - they supply some local restaurants as well. Mug or normal size and located in a street away from Macrossman making it a bit quieter.
