Queen of Pops: Get your kick on a stick

Queen of Pops: Get your kick on a stick

What’s cooler than being cool; ice cold! While we can’t go past a decent iced coffee, we can’t wait to indulge our taste buds in a frozen coffee popsicle.

Yes, you heard correctly, the cool hot shots behind Dandelion and Driftwood, Peter and Penny Wolff, have launched Queen of Pops in Clayfield, serving caffeinated popsicles.

Brisbane cafes give coffee addicts, like we Stylers, a range of ways to get our morning or afternoon hit, but Queen of Pops plan to cure our coffee cravings in some rather nontraditional ways - and we're ready to lap it up!

Queen Of Pops 'Crown Jewels'

Let’s talk about the pops. The ‘Crown Jewel’ range replicates a barista cup experience, with each pop containing a double ristretto of specialty coffee. The pops can be made on a blend or single origin beans for the straight coffee shooters, and for the chocolate lovers, there is a ‘hot choc pop’ made on Trinitario cacao - yum! The best part is you can buy these pops in a take-home pack, to share or to keep to yourself (we won’t judge).

So you’re not a popsicle fan? :O While I’m not sure we can be friends, there are a lot of other things you may like about this Brisbane café. How does a nitrogen infused coffee or tea sound? It’s basically cold brew on tap, comprising three bean blends for the cold brewed coffee and a fusion of cherry, hibiscus, rosehip and blackberry for the Nitro Cold Brew Tea; they’ve labelled this one for the de-caffeinated hipster crowd, but it doesn’t sound so bad to us either.

Transforming coffee into its fine frozen form has been in the works by Peter and Penny Wolff for a couple of years, working with Food Innovation Australia and food scientists in the iced confectionery genre to create the ‘Crown Jewels’ range. Serious coffee lovers have already taken note of these rockstar coffee creations and we think it’s set to have other Brisbane cafes frozen in their tracks.

However, it’s not just a right royal caffeine affair at Queen of Pops, with a range of food options available, including the royally named Princess Ring blueberry bagel with house-made raspberry cream cheese and King Bagel with bacon, free-range egg, melted tasty cheddar, tomato relish and rocket, among other bagels, sandwiches and sweets.
