DAY 5 Part 1
Patricia Coffee Brewers is a different order of coffee and quite easily one of my favourite. It was rated the number two café in Melbourne and melds three simple offerings of black, white and filter – the flow was flawless – with complex Seven Seed roasted techniques. We sample the iced poured coffee over that’s redolent of something found at a watering hole or speakeasy bar. I love the “Standing Room Only” articulation of what it means to be a fan of its cosy interior that is small but perfect. In fact, you can buy beans repackaged in colourful containers and the staffs are immensely friendly and make you feel welcomed whether you’re a coffee nut or just an amateur who needs his or her caffeine fix.

I’m a converted fan of the avant garde layout, seeing that the space of Filter by Small Batch that’s split into half with one side looking like a bank lobby with first impression officers and a high ceilings – is it after all housed in abandoned office building – is a sight to behold because it’s organised an uncluttered. The spaciousness is definitely is certainly a plus if you want to have a change of scenery from the tight quarters of other coffee houses as there’s a focused corner for espressos and lengthy filter coffee section. I briefly tangled with a filter coffee extracted from a Mahlkoenig EK43 double bean hopper and and Scandinavian style sandwiches. Before we know it, it’s to make a move and if you have a tight schedule, this place is perfect with paper cups for a quick refill before your next urgent appointment with your banker.
