  • Most of us start the day looking forward to a coffee. Especially if you’re living in Marrickville where the irresistible aromas of roasting and brewing are pretty much unavoidable. 

    You’ll be happy to know that our bodies look forward to a coffee too, because in many ways, it’s really good for your health. 

    Here are five reasons why. And just so you know where you can find your medicine, we’ve matched each reason with a café in Marrickville. 

    One: Boosts your mood.
