I continued my tour of the Beanhunter Top Cafe List by visiting the #1. The staff are relaxed and cool, albeit almost too nonchalant, to the point where I felt that they were not in the customer service industry. Maybe because I was in the mood to sit at a table, relax and enjoy the hipster Collingwood air, but the lack of chairs and tables did disappoint me greatly. There's room, they've just chosen to leave it vacant. The important part, the coffee, was very smooth and creamy. I would have preferred a little more flavour though.

Great milk coffee. Lucien & his barista team rock. Great building with welcoming knowledgeable crew who are passionate about coffee. Also do excellent fast, simple, tasty food eat in or takeaway. Great place on Peel St, just off Smith St. 👍🏼☕️👍🏼

An absolute fantastic washed Colombian double espresso grown at 1500m above sea level, from a sweet farm called Lot Tambo in the Cauca region of Colombia.. citrusy and sweet, as it cooled the flavours amplified.. Followed by an El Salvador gem known as the Supersonic Natural.. was like drinking plums. Hats off to the farmer, Mauricio Salaverria, and the roaster in Canberra Sasha, from Ona, and the boys from Plug Nikel.. representing the coffee farmers and making some of the best coffee in the country.. so good. Pop in Great service and really passionate about the coffees

Plug & Nickel is one of the many holes-in-the-wall to pop up in the overrun Peel St boom. But it's one you should bump to the top of your priority list. Friendly staff (churr, bru), uncomplicated layout and flow, and a fun servery window right onto the street. The magic I tried on opening week was nothing spectular, but the two times I've been since have been spot-on. Ona Coffee's beans taste a little more fruity/citric to taste, but the boys are balancing this well in milk-based drinks. My strong lattes hit just the right note, without being overly strong/sharp. On your next stroll through Hipsterville, make sure you drop by for a quick chat and a sip.
