Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped in for beans while visiting from Brisbane. The reviews didn't lie! They let us taste a couple different brews to find what suited. Their helpful and sincere friendliness with coffee and local travel tips was fantastic!

Found this place on the way to work, it’s pretty popular and can tell why. Nice little set up they’ve got going on. Great coffee.

I really love the coffee here, always served by friendly staff. They also have a great range of snacks/food available and it is nice to sit and relax too.

If you are looking for a quality coffee in Cairns, then this is it. Tucked away in the industrial area of Cairns, this cavernous warehouse serves up awesome coffee roasted on site to all the local businesses. Although coffee is the focus, the White Whale...offers a limited selection of cakes and salads which are all top quality too. Worth taking the trip out of the CBD.More

Great little cafe if you're serious about coffee. Hidden away a bit but easy to find with gmaps. Staff were very friendly and passionate about coffee and service. Great to meet people who enjoy their job. Well worth a visit

I didn't know it when I sampled a coffee from Indy One when they first opened in 2010. But as my taste for coffee matured, I came to realise that Industry One really is unique. The original owners moved the shop to Portsmith and it's...still as good as it was eight years ago. Steve and Dave have a real knack for coffee flavours and roasting beans. All medium roasted, and each blend full of flavour and distinct character. The baristas they've had over the years have been experienced and in 8 years and roughly 1000 coffees in that time (if my budget allowed I'd get a coffee from these guys every day) I don't recall ever being served a dud, over poured, super bitter, burnt milk coffee and so often plagues most coffee shops. The Indy One blend is still the best, then for me a very close second is their new Tumbleweed Blend and the Stonehammer. The Transformer and Baristas blend round out a full set of excellent brews. Thanks for the best coffee in the world guys.More

I highly recommend you take the time to visit this "out of the way" coffee roasters. You are always welcomed with a massive smile from the staff and always up for some morning banter.. but the best part is the delicious coffee.. hands down my...fav. They also do alternate mylks which is a bonus! Their cakes and toasted sambos are also amazing..More

Do yourself a favour & grab a coffee from here, you won't be disappointed! The staff are very friendly with lots of knowledge on the coffee that they sell. When I went there to order the coffee the following day they remembered my name!!!!! Wow...very impressive. The shop is a little of the beaten track in an industrial centre but well worth the drive. Keep up the great coffee, PhilMore
