Aunty Peg's


Best cafe Aunty Peg's in melbourne for 2016

Nicaraguan Flight Bourbon washed as an espresso came with a mild crema, stonefruit heavy start and limey-lemon acidity Anaerobic washed espresso had a luxurious mouthfeel, sweet apricot and bright acidity - real good. Natural as a pour over - mild buttery texture but vibrant tropical fruits (including the pineapple ester). A sweet, clean, fruit bowl in a glass. One of the best flights I’ve had here
