Coffee joint in the Melbourne CBD that specialises in cold drip and serves pastries from Cobb Lane.
The house speciality here is their cold drip. The slow extraction method combined with the house-roasted single origin beans results in a fruity, rich, and slightly acidic cup of coffee. The filter range is equally impressive, with exotic tasting notes like ‘pineapple, green melon, and coriander’ for the Indonesian Wahana Estate. The house blend, a full bodied, four-bean mix, medium roast with toffee notes, is silky smooth with or without milk. At $4, it’s hardly Melbourne’s most expensive coffee, and there’s no extra charge for single origin beans, but it’s worth bringing your own cup for that sweet 30 cent discount. They also supply fizzy water on tap to cleanse your palate. The staff are polite and efficient, and the cool metallic fixtures and newspapers pinned to the walls make for a businesslike atmosphere. The sweet treats on offer are from Cobb Lane, because if you’re going to have croissants and coffee for breakfast they should both be top notch.
