It appears the Melbourne Coffee review is stalking my favourite coffee joints. After the review of Piccolo Esspresso, my uni spot, I didn’t really expect to see something so familiar so soon. But the Home Barista Institute is my work spot, which they reviewed today and it’s probably in my top three. I don’t get there too often as it’s a bit of a walk, but they make great pumpkin boccocini and spinach foccacias and their coffee is grand, plus, they play the Amelie soundtrack, have a pleasant outlook and decent magazines. Now all the Review must do, is hike out to Croydon mainstreet and visit the Kofi Bean… or perhaps all the way up the mountain to Belgrave for Earthly Pleasures.
I follow a blog called the Melbourne Coffee Review, and the other day I left a suggestion on the facebook group to check out my favourite (non eastern suburbs) caffeine joint, Piccolo Espresso, and they actually reviewed it! Pleased to say the lovely staff met every expectation I lorded upon them via social media and the place got a raving. It’s late and I think I’m making up words, but triple cheers to excellent staff and great coffee and a special mention for their spectacular homemade muffins, even if I did just miss out on the cranberry and cream cheese trial last week.
The review, some love for the bean and the people, because they get a lot of us through class awake.
