I finally had the chance to return for that Rwandan natural...... Oh. my. lord. This is ones worth coming in for. Its rare to have a naturally processed Rwandan, and when its done well, it has such an exceptional profile. Just think strawberry and raspberry jam.... a berry blast!
Coffee style: always black (long or filter) Consistently great. the etheopians are especially mind boggling... some insane flavours in them usually. The staff are great. I love the attitude of the red headed barista with the beard in partivular. He is knowledgeable in a non-snobbish manner. Simple language for a simple customer
Last stop for the day, and the menu had some stellar offerings... from the Ethiopian Beriti, to a fresh crop Bolivian. Ethiopian Beriti was the pick of the bunch. With its lemon acidity, and floral aroma, the Beriti worked a treat as a short black.
This place does great coffee, food is really nice too. I don't mind the dinginess given that you are in Collingwood/Abbotsford so it plays to the local student/hipster population and the wannabe hippy kids who drive in from Kew/Hawthorn. Staff are lovely. It is loud inside when there is a crowd, so if you are hearing impaired or want a quiet relaxing spot to have a coffee on the weekend, this probably isn't it. Don't bring your kids.
