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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice enough little cafe but the coffee was pretty ordinary. Vittoria's mass produced beans lacked any real flavour and the product was not well made. The milk made the coffee too hot to drink immediately and was steamed in a jug with dried milk around the inside walls. The lady simply topped off the large jug which contained the remaining milk from goodness only knows how many previous batches. Not very sanitary and not very tasty.

With a good score already on the board I was keen to try their product. The staff were friendly and the cafe looked like a great place to sit and enjoy a meal. They offer a couple of blends to cater too differing tastes and knew their product well enough to suggest which blend would suit my tastes. My flat white was based off a blend of Columbian and Brazilian beans. It was tasty and though I maybe would have liked it to be a bit stronger but you expect a milder flavour from those beans on a medium roast. The only downside was my cup which was dented in such a way that the lid popped off and sloshed through my car's cup holder! They quickly provided me with napkins to clean up and transferred my drink to a new cup.
