[Note: Cottle Coffee is no longer a café, but the public can visit the roastery to buy roasted coffee beans, as well as attend cupping workshops that are held from time to time.]
This tiny café is the first Asian outpost of Melbourne-based artisan coffee roaster Cottle Coffee. Stock up on coffee paraphernalia and coffee beans here. With beans flown in from their roastery in Australia every two weeks, Cottle currently offers a rotating selection of single origin beans (ranging from Ethiopian Yirgacheffe to Mexican San Cristobal and organic Peruvian micro lot beans) in addition to their three house blends. Food-wise, they also have some sandwiches (go for the pulled braised beef sandwich), pies, wraps, salads and cakes, but their focus is still on the coffee. Try the Magic (double ristretto 6oz flat white), a uniquely Melbourne creation.
