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.
Open Sunday which is great. No single origin from Uncle Joe's (roaster) but their 'Purple Haze' Tri-origin beans made a nice long black. The AXIL Colombian in double-espresso didn't taste great. I hope they can offer a premium single from Uncle Joe's as that is their point of difference, for me at least. Regardless, an above-average cafe in my opinion.
