Is this cafe selling Toowoomba's cheapest coffee?

A CAFE in the Toowoomba CBD that found itself with more than 2500 takeaway coffee cups is selling them for just $2.

Sorella's Espresso Lounge on Ruthven St, opposite City Hall, can boast some of the cheapest coffee in Toowoomba.

Co-owner Zoe Glover said the business inherited the enormous over-supply of small coffee cups after the Third Monkey closed down last month.

"We've got something like 2500 small cups and we're selling them for just $2 - this would be one of the cheapest coffees (in Toowoomba)," she said.

"I'm originally from the Third Monkey and when it shut down, the Third Monkey actually gave us all these small coffee cups.

"Everything is really cheap - we're trying to get that customer base.

"People can not believe that everything is so cheap."

Ms Glover, who has been a barista for more than a decade, said she and her mother Jo Gardiner had been running it for just six weeks after the previous owners made a quick exit.

She said the pair planned to change the name soon.

"We're open Monday to Friday, 7am to 3pm. (and) we'll be opening on Carnival of Flowers parade day," Ms Glover said.
