Quists Coffee - (Melbourne)

  There is an illusion that Melbourne is a coffee heaven,  but unfortunately that is not completely true.   Some of the best cafes occasionally make a bad coffee -  in fact most Artisanal Roasters concentrate too much on pulling perfect shots but goes on to make you a super weak milk-based coffee!  Sometimes the blends change too quickly and a substituted bean or different roast batch will make the cup taste entirely different.     Quists Coffee is a traditional European roasting coffee style,  which tends to use blends and dark roasting levels more resembling Mocha-Java in taste.   



Also found in the City,  next to wonderful Italian restaurant il Bacaro ..


Definitely no 3rd Waver modern equipment here -


Cappuccino -
You know there is a café that I really hate in Melbourne and it is called Pellegrini,  but they always get mentioned in the outdated travel books.   I refuse to go there for coffee because the last time I went  I donated the bitter drink to a nearby tree.   Unfortunately,  this suffered the same fate.  This was darker and roastier,  more bitter than French roast coffees or anything I’ve drank in Italy.   It is certainly not a Terzi Caffe  or Caffe Tazza D’Oro  ~   3/10



It might have its own crowd that it can attract -
But it is not really my style at all.
