Doctor Java, Organic Coffee (Melbourne) - ♕♕♕♕ 1/2

  Doctor Java is a coffee cart that is only found on the day they hold a cart at the weekly Farmer’s Market in Melbourne.   The coffee is spot-on roasted and catering for the middle-quantile drinkers infatuated with their milk based coffees..    Which means it is not aiming to please the traditional Italian crowd and the latest New 3rd wave terroir based cafes importing from all over the world.   Afterall,  who really cares about the minute differences.   This from the beginning was to please the overall crowd but perhaps lacking in spirit..



Coffee Cart -
Doctor Java.  Just the name by itself makes me think this is not the latest 3rd wave trend.



Caffe Latte -
This was my 1st coffee.  It was more than decent and an everyday milk-coffee type of drink.  Could drink this all day long.   This didn’t look too attractive by default but taste wise  this is better than 95% of shops in HK, bar a few shops who fully know what they are trying to achieve.   ~ 6.9/10



Another Caffé Latte –
Like more Melbourne cafes,  latte art is not always poured to impress visually.    Much like the average looking coffee presented above.  But if u want to see a pretty picture on your coffee, insist on something just a little more special since the baristas are accommodative.    Out came a geometrically shaped and clean latte art to replace the 1st cup.    Can you believe,  the above coffee and the one below were made all by the same barista person?   In the eye of the professional baristas,  taste is always >  than the presentation !
