manusama reviewed Axil Coffee Roasters
As I drove away from this place, I was quite literally speechless. When you walk in, it feels like you've walked into the coffee equivalent of a beer hall - very impressive. Gone are the days of long queues and squishy, shared tables just to get a decent coffee, only to be pressured to leave shortly after. But it would be a gross understatement to say that the coffee here is decent. I tried a single origin macchiato from El Salvador, perfectly extracted by the talented (and consequently awarded) barista who masterfully cured the milk to silky perfection (oh, I tried a latte too). It's the best coffee I've ever had. However my experience didnt stop there...the food was exquisite (who knew chorizo could taste SO good with fetta and jam???) and the service was overwhelmingly good! The people are fantastic and so helpful but not over-bearing. It's about time Hawthorn had a cafe of this calibre. I am coming back.
