More interesting for it's below counter espresso machine, Nomad is good by Barcelona standards, but not exceptional. There are better coffees elsewhere. As usual, blends and SOs are best as a cortado and don't shine as espressos

There’s no comparison to other Spanish cafes, this along with Espresso Mafia are, head and shoulders, better. In comparison to the top third wave Melbourne cafes there’s still room for improvement with the coffee, but food and ambience and service are very good. Tried espresso and Cortado, probably not my type of bean selection and poured a little long, but good. Recommended
Professor Tournesol reviewed Espresso Mafia
I’m comparing Espresso Mafia to Melbourne’s top coffee shops. Great location, great service, ok coffee. Espresso was a little sour, and long, suggesting under-extraction. I’m not sure if this is a blend or SO as it wasn’t indicated. By Girona standards, excellent, keep at it Christian:)
Exciting but small third wave caffe in Turin. There’s a range of blends and single origins and a range of styles from espresso to pour overs and press. Great flavor profiles, real fresh milk, grind on demand, this is a serious coffee shop that would do well in Melbourne. There’s a limited range of pastries
Professor Tournesol reviewed Sixpence Coffee
The roastery has relocated from the old cafe (that’s continuing as a bakery that also serves coffee) and has opened in new premises. It also includes a bar and gin distillery. Usual excellent Sixpence coffee, even better flavour extraction from the new Slayer
Professor Tournesol reviewed The Milbri
Dropped in with the family today for coffees and a shared lunch. Good vibe and friendly service although not very busy at the time. Coffee was good, nicely balanced espresso without being exceptional but way above the normal Peninsula standard. I had good feedback about the piccolos ordered by there family members. We shared a small lunch, tasty well cooked mexican food.
Very 'Melbourne' vibe to this cafe. Limited but tasty menu and friendly staff. Espresso had good flavour but too long at 60mls. Very obligingly made me a Magic but again a little long however very drinkable coffee and well worth the visit if in Jindabyne.
Professor Tournesol reviewed Sixpence Coffee
This is a 'little local secret' located in the 'industrial estate' of Bright rather than in the main street frequented by tourists. Originally started as a roaster (blends not S.Is) but now also a functioning cafe and excellent bakery but with limited opening hours. Excellent coffee with a house blend that's a good compromise between milk and espresso coffee. Pastries are limited in range but not limited in quality. Good, friendly service and a knowledgeable barista. Recommended.
Professor Tournesol reviewed Coffee Chakra
I've been an irregular regular here for several months & this is an extremely reliable stop for excellent coffee and food. They've recently upgraded to a Kees Van den Westen Triplette and roast their own single origins and blends. Food menu is limited but good and a special reccomendation to the curries. If you have some time they'll make you a real chai, hand blended on site.
Rather cute corner shop location, this is a new cafe and roastery. Vegan, vegetarian menu with optional meat side dishes, there's a food option here for most people but the real star is the coffee. Equal to the best in South Melbourne with house blends and single origins, espresso and drip and a range of teas.
Professor Tournesol reviewed The Apple Shed
Food and apple museum complex, offers cider tasting (recommended) as well as meals and coffee. I had a simple Ham and cheese toastie that was tasty and well made but the surprise was the coffee, I ordered a flat white with ⅔ milk, closest to a piccolo, and it was surprisingly well balanced the milk could have been better textured so I marked it down a little but coffe is at least ground on demand, correctly extracted and worth a second visit.
Professor Tournesol reviewed Sash coffee
Several visits here and several coffees. Service Can be a little slow when busy but so can anywhere. There are few tables and a limited menu but the service is friendly and helpful. Eggs on toast were good but it's not a complex dish. Coffee was excellent, good Melbourne cafe quality. Great espresso with a good flavor balance and intensity that only happens when all the supply and production steps are right. Also tried a piccolo latte and a flat white, all excellent
Bra hunter, you've saved my palate once again. Nice relaxed vibe in a cafe surf shop, we ordered tasty Bircher mueslis for brekky along with 2 Majics. Apart from liking to see the milk textured a little better it was very good
Professor Tournesol reviewed Glovers Station
Good conversion from an old mock Tudor garage in what is an otherwise dead corner of suburbia. The food menu is interesting and tasty and competitively priced although not cheap. I was a little disappointed in my espresso though, it was inoffensive but lacked the flavor complexity of the top cafes.
A wonderful location in the courtyard at Münzstraße 21, a Synesso and an Aussie barista give you some idea of what to expect - a clean well extracted fruity and wonderful espresso. Best coffee I tasted in Berlin by a fair distance.
