First impression was that there people take their coffee very seriously. A blend and a Guatemalan single origin from Axil and another single from Uncle Joe's. I had a strong flat white on the Axil blend (4 South American beans). The cup was initially just a touch too hot to be comfortable and obscured the flavour but as the cup cooled the beautiful chocolate and caramel tones came through with an impressive strength. The aftertaste of cacao on the tongue was brilliant. I would love to take the time to try the single origins but I've got my caffeine quota for the day! Maybe next time!
Ive been away in Adelaide, and its such a joy to come home to the service and coffee from One Origin. I had the Purple Haze blend from Uncle Joes as an espresso, which reminded me of blueberry and lemon candy. So nice to feel welcomed back to Melbourne.
We had breakfast here today and it was too shelf. The food was of good portion, flavour and value. The coffee was well prepared and to no fault of Dr Chen, tasted under developed. This was noted through dry grass flavour in my pour over, with minimum sweetness and acidity. I would say that the blend, purple haze, was under developed at roasting, although having had this blend before at several cafes it is possible that it was under extracted at brew. My milk coffee was exceptional although the expected Ethiopian natural processed coffee flavours were very lacking. The fit out is very nice. I will return again and recommend to friends.
