Who makes the best coffee in Gladstone? Have your say

WHERE are you most likely to find Gladstone's best brew?

According to local coffee lovers on The Observer's Facebook page, it's McDonald's that delivers the most beloved morning heart-starter.

Rusty's, DJ's, Rocksalt, Donut King and the Hungry Cow Cafe also made the list of preferred coffee spots .

Rocksalt owner Jason Faint said the trick behind a perfect coffee came down a number of factors.

"The beans, milk, milk temperature and grinder all come into play," Jason said.

"We have one rule in this cafe: if you don't drink coffee, you don't make coffee."

Churning out dozens of lattes, flat whites and cappuccinos per day, Jason said the newest coffee craze sweeping town was the piccolo latte.

"It is very popular with the younger generation," he said.

A piccolo latte is a mini latte - it has a single shot of coffee layered with a small amount of steamed milk.

Jason said advertising had an influence over where Gladstone residents preferred to drink their java.
