Cold Presse Organic Juicery Bar - Pressing Some Good Buttons

Cold Presse Organic Juicery Bar - 18-36 Wyatt Street, Adelaide SA 5000

On hearing that a new juice bar had opened not far from work we decide to get on down to see what this juicery offers that may be different to our regular haunts in the Adelaide CBD.  Cold Presse Organic Juicery Bar offers pre-made cold pressed juices, smoothies, coffees, salads and some sweets, mainly for take away but with some bar type seating for those wanting to eat in.

We are informed the salads are made fresh daily on site, so we decide to get takeaway and try each of the 4 salads available today.

Large Salad box - 4 choices - $11
Our salad findings are as follows:

'Get Your Freekeh On' with ancient green grain freekeh, lentils and soft herbs - I also discovered some goji berries and pomegranate in this salad which added some bursts of sweetness.  This was my least favourite salad of the four I tried.  The lentils were cooked well retaining a nice texture but I found the salad to be a little dry and lacking flavour overall.  I didn't get many herbs in my spoonful so maybe that was why.

'Beetroot Salad' with carrot, orange, Danish feta, mint and orange blossom - this gluten free salad was OK, again not my favourite. The beetroot was very firm and crunchy and if it wasn't for the addition of the creamy Danish feta it would have lacked flavour also.  I wasn't much of a fan of the orange and beetroot combination which I found an odd pairing. When I've had other salads that are Beetroot based, they've had a bit more punch from a punchy dressing, like apple cider vinegar. Something like this would lift the salad up a flavour level.

'Insalata di Cous Cous' with pearly cous cous, seasonal vegetables and herbs - this was my favourite salad of the day.  I would have been happy with a big bowl of this one on it's own.  There were lovely shavings of fennel, celery pieces, capsicum and lots of mint throughout the big pearly cous cous base.  The dressing had nice acidity and the salad as a whole was seasoned well.

'Moroccan Spiced Chickpea' with tomato, red onion, chickpeas, radish, cucumber and capsicum - this was a close second to my favourite.  Lots of different components all nicely diced and seasoned well.  The addition of the thick creamy yoghurt on top added some tanginess and was an overall refreshing salad to eat.

Takeaway Coffee ($3.80) & Salad

We also purchased a skim latte for the walk back to work. Cold Presse are using Carnevale Coffee beans, a local roaster in Clarence Park. This is the first CBD location to be using their beans, so we were keen to try. The coffee was nice, the milk well frothed and heated and the beans had a distinct citrus note to them. Not much else to say about the take away latte, the real test will come later on when we return for an espresso. 

Salted Caramel Almond Milk - $10 - 500ml
After we returned to Cold Presse for a second time, the lovely owner sent us off with two complimentary beverages to try.  The first we tried was the Salted Caramel Almond Milk.  I (Amanda) make my own almond milk regularly so I was keen to try this salted caramel version.  Unfortunately all we could taste was almond milk!  We agreed that the caramel or salted flavours aren't strong, whilst the other ingredients listed such as coconut and vanilla bean were not very prominent either. With a little more playing around with the ingredient combinations and amounts this could be a very popular flavour.

Sweet & Sour Cold Pressed Juice - $10 - 500ml
Next we tried the Sweet and Sour cold pressed juice. This consisted of apple, lemon and ginger.  We loved this juice as it was light and refreshing. It had good zing from the lemon and great ginger flavours coming through. It almost had a little fizz feeling making us feel like we were drinking a home made lemonade infused with ginger. Definitely the perfect summery drink with some great immunity properties. Both drinks were quite large (500ml), sufficient to share as one serve, or to have a few times throughout a day.

Espresso - $3
Also on this return visit, we tried the coffee in espresso form. A nice, short shot, with good crema was delivered. The coffee, a little number from Honduras, had a great nutty taste initially, and as it cooled, the citrus notes were stronger. Suffice to say, it's a decent coffee, and the Carnevale beans are worthy of a try.

Overall we enjoyed our quick and nutritious takeaway lunch from Cold Presse Organic Juicery Bar.  The medium salad which includes the choice of up to 4 salads was a good serving size that kept us full throughout the afternoon and that isn't an easy task to achieve!  The Carnevale coffee beans are unique to the city which is worth the visit to try these out if you haven't had a prior opportunity.  We look forward to returning for more salads (we hear they change weekly), coffees and the made to order superfood blended smoothies.
