I Must Be A Coffee Philistine!

Hi V ... I've heard it said that Melbourne has a real coffee culture.  It does seem that no matter where you are in Melbourne you are only 5 minutes away from somewhere to buy the brewed beverage.  The bar above is new; located at the new "you beaut", recently renovated Hamer Hall. I'm told that the perfect temperature for coffee is between 70 and 80 degrees celsius.  I must be a coffee philistine.  For me the hotter the coffee the better.  It makes the conversation last longer. Ciao J.

  1. This coffee shop claims to use special chemical laboratory approach to cipher the expresso. However, it fails to impress on a number of occasions.

    I heard Adelaide is supposed to be the caffee capital in Australia :(

    This photo looks like a capture of modern living in Australia

  2. I like a good and hot coffee too Joe (I am drinking one now this morning). I like the very upbeat and modern mood of your night shot too. Fabulous!

  3. I heard it was higher - one cafe chain calls itself Cafe94 (or similar) as it reckons 94 degrees is the best. Anyhoo I'm one of those caficionados who prefers my coffee "correct" as too hot destroys the flavour. As for conversation: "How's your coffee?" "Alright" "How's your coffee?" "Alright" *awkward silence*

  4. Great photo and looks upmarket- seems a better place than many to go for coffee, whatever the temperature.

  5. Oh me too Joe, I just don't see the point in drinking luke warm coffee. I get some very strange looks when I ask for an extra, extra hot cappuccino, but I care not..I likes it the way I likes it. Hammer Hall looks like a super cool place to hang out!

  6. Cool shot!

    I watched a TV series called The Great Italian Cafe. It was a guy from Melbourne that traveled around Italy going to cafes and drinking coffee.(I want his job:) In the final episode he went back to Melbourne and explained the coffee culture that came from the Italian immigrants.
