With 35 per cent of the vote, ReX Coffee + Food, serving up Campos coffee is hereby crowned the Best Coffee in Roma, as voted by the readers of the Western Star.

Having always had a passion for coffee, owner Genevieve Rogers opened up her shopfront over two years ago.

It's been a fixture of the town ever since.

The secret to a successful cup of coffee is more than just the beans they ground, it's the right mixture of staff, consistency, and great customers.

"I think Campos is such a great brand, the coffee is nice and smooth and consistent," she said.

"I think you can still stuff up good coffee, depending on who makes it. You have to have your staff trained well and be consistent

"My staff are the best, customer service is also really important for us."

Flat whites are without a doubt the most popular coffee order, and Gen has noticed more people walking through the doors now than when she first started serving up brews. 

"I think more people are open to drinking barista-made coffee everyday, whether a habit or an addiction," she said. 

"I think that has become more popular, and coffee culture is big out here in Roma.

"I wouldn't say there's any bad coffee in town, it's just about what people prefer. Coffee is different, it comes down to taste."

Coming in a close second, with 33 per cent of the vote, was newcomer Beck's Chopping Board.

The Tasting Co came in third, The Roasted Bean Bar in fourth, and Bear and Luca in fifth.

Stay tuned to have your say in the next round of 'Best of Roma'.

Whether it's the best local hairdresser, the best café to grab a coffee or the best mechanic to see when you have car troubles - you will have an opportunity to put the spotlight on great locals.
