COFFEE on tap has come to Perth.

Primal Pantry has opened in the Cafe Court of Perth’s second tallest building, Brookfield Place.

And it’s serving ‘nitro coffee’ from a tap through a keg – with the chilled beverage, say owners, popular overseas with wellness advocates.

The owner of the organic coffee and eatery business is Troy Pickard, who recently retired as Joondalup mayor after 11 years at the helm.

Mr Pickard said nitro coffee was popular because it did not require sugar to soften the bitter taste.

“Nitro coffee is simply cold brew coffee charged with nitrogen,” he said.

“It creates a rich, creamy taste and gives you the perception of sweetness without anything being added.

“The ethos of Primal Pantry is to mainstream clean-eating as a healthy lifestyle alternative. Our food and beverage offering is dairy free, gluten free, never processed and has no added sugar.”

Brookfield precinct manager Ben Davis said Primal Pantry would complement the already strong Cafe Court tenancy mix.

“We’re pleased to have Primal Pantry’s very first store presence in WA at Brookfield Place.” Mr Davis said.
