If you're in dire need of a pick-me-up, Toby's Estate has got you covered with their espresso + flat white combo made with beans from their own farm.

From Woolloomooloo to Flinders Lane, and New York to Panama, Toby’s Estate has an international brand and a global reputation for quality coffee. The Melbourne branch is a bright, airy affair inside Customs House. The staff are cheery and it helps that they’re subject matter experts; Toby’s Estate owns its own bean farm, Finca Santa Teresa in Panama, so they’re personally familiar with every part of the coffee making process. All the coffee ranges between $3.40 (short blacks and piccolos) and $5.50 (for the V60 filter). There’s also a 20 cent BYO cup discount for those environmentally conscious folk. Our pick is the $5 business + pleasure: an espresso and a flat white made with single origin beans. It’s an excellent way to experience the difference milk makes to a brew, gauge the full flavour profile of the beans, and secure your caffeine hit. They have a full café menu, but the standout snack is the rare beef baguette with caramelised onion, radish cream, spinach and cheddar.
