The brothers are a diverse group of siblings in both personality and skills.
Having experienced living in; three states of Australia, North America, Asia as well as travelled worldwide.
Prior to brother espresso they have toiled in Her Majesties Services, printed wine labels for the world, designed hotels, back packed Europe and North America and administered in childcare and insurance.
Brother Espresso was born when members of the Gowty family came to a similar crossroad.
Over a few fine ales they were discussing the need for a new challenge, one where they could control their own destiny. Under these circumstances most things seem possible.
After a visit to Melbourne we discovered a coffee culture that appealed, and it was thought that something similar could born in the debris of the heritage listed Watsons Plumbing Building that we discovered in Margaret Street. Over a 6 month period with the help of family, friends and understanding associates we hand built the Margaret Street space from the ground up.
Despite giving the space a soul, on opening day there were some seriously nervous brothers, mothers fathers and spouses hoping that “they would come” and keep coming.
Our fears were soon allayed and we discovered that our commonsense approach to coffee and simple affordable food offerings were what our customers were looking for.
Each year since we have added a new and different brother espresso cafe; Wickham House (CBD), Riding Road (Bulimba) and our Roastery Cafe in Warry St (Fortitude Valley).
Our aim is to provide good coffee and food in a comfortable environment at an affordable price.
We don’t always get it right, but we find that our customers are forgiving and accept what we are about,

We recommend you allow our coffees to degas and rest a minimum of 7 days after the date of roast in the original sealed bag at room temperature before use.
Store it in a dark place away from heat, moisture or light.
Coffee starts to loose its sweetness and aroma after 3-4 weeks, make sure you use it before it is too late.
~ David’s’ Cold Brew Coffee Extract ~
Gently brewed from Fifth Battery roasted beans on a daily basis. The cold-brew process extracts the coffee bean’s delicious flavour and eliminates much of the acidity, producing a bold, super-smooth coffee extract.
During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat.
Cold-brewing ground beans produce a coffee that is naturally low in acid – approximately 67% less acidic than coffee brewed by conventional hot-brew methods.
A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted during the brewing process. Some of those compounds, including certain oils and fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature.
During the cold brew process, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperature.
Cold water brewing extracts the delicious flavour compounds (and some of the caffeine) from coffee beans, but leaves behind some of the bitter oils and biting fatty acids. These are the same bitter acids and fatty oils that surface to the top of your hot cup of coffee, and give hot-brewed coffee that familiar ‘bite’ (thus the reason that some 8 out of 10 people attempt to soften the acidic taste by adding milk to their coffee).
The cold-brew process creates a balanced and distinctively smooth coffee.
~ Serving Instructions ~
Davids’ Cold Brew Coffee Extract produces a naturally low acid, bold yet smooth coffee concentrate that may be refrigerated for up to 21 days without noticeable deterioration in taste or freshness. And, importantly, there’s no waste.
Davids’ can be made one glass at a time simply by adding cold water or milk over ice.
We recommend a ratio of (1) one part coffee concentrate to (2) two parts water, milk.
One of the benefits of using the Davids’ system is that you can mix to taste (make it as strong or as weak as you prefer).
You can sweeten to taste by adding a liquid sweetener such as Agave Syrup.
