MrWalko reviewed Blacksmith Specialty Coffee
This was a regular for a little while but the quality seemed to depend on the certain staff. There was a young blonde girl who produced great coffee but she seems to have moved on. The current staff just can't seem to match the quality that she was producing. The milk is consistently a touch hot and the shots taste a bit burned as well.
MrWalko reviewed Juliette's
Sorry, but I cannot understand how this gets good ratings. It's very average coffee. The milk was burned, the espresso was flavourless and uninteresting. The Gelato looks great and the location is great but this is a coffee rating site...
MrWalko reviewed Good Morning Coffee Trader
I popped in here after arriving from the airport and was thrilled to find a tasty coffee so close at hand. It was well made, not burned, and overall quite enjoyable. Perhaps those that gave a bad review caught them on an off day?
MrWalko reviewed Specialty Coffee Trader
These guys are excellent. It's hidden away in an industrial precinct but well worth going hunting to find it. I went back twice on Saturday and was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the product. It was full flavoured and delicious. The guys were only too happy to chat coffee with me which I always enjoy.
MrWalko reviewed Brother Baba Budan
A trip to Melbourne means a visit to Brother Baba Budan. It's an essential location for those passionate about their coffee. The product is always excellent. Even though I've been gone for months, nothing has changed and they're still producing beautiful coffee. Combine that with the quirky decor and you've got a wonderful inner city coffee experience.
MrWalko reviewed Wake Me Up
I arrived for a coffee pretty close to closing time and in chatting with the young lady serving, she stated that the guy really responsible for their top coffee was a morning shift guy and had finished for the day. They do double shot as standard in a flat white which is a huge plus compared to so many others who charge extra. It was well made with a good texture and smooth, strong flavour. It was good, but I would stop short of saying it was exceptional which I might otherwise expect from a cafe with a score over 9.
MrWalko reviewed Josie North
It's hiding down inside a quiet mall away from the road but it was worth the find. The coffee was made on beans from 7 Seeds from Melbourne and very tasty. Instantly pleasing and enjoyable enough that I might have been tempted to get another had I not already walked back to the truck and started to drive away.
MrWalko reviewed Hallowed Grounds Espresso
Unfortunately, it looks like the owners have changed and the coffee is suffering. A few weeks ago the staff entirely changed and since then, the coffee has taken on a bitter taste and is regularly too hot. Sad to see a good coffee spot suffering for lack of a quality product.
