This shop is located on Coventry Street in South Melbourne, just across the road from South Melbourne Market. We have long admired the South Melbourne Market community, with its quality-focused butchers, bakers, grocers and fish mongers, and its emphasis on fresh, delicious food and beverage. We opened this space in 2017. It is located across the road from the market opposite the organic produce section– a wonderful spot to take a moment during a busy day, put your bags down and enjoy a coffee.
We worked closely with Sarah Trotter at Hearth Studio to create a beautiful and welcoming space. The handsome blue-green exterior and navy awning usher you into a cosy shop. The soft-blue wall tiles are inspired by the vivid blue washing channels and flotation tanks in many coffee washing stations in Rwanda. The cabinetry is expertly crafted by Orio Randi and his team at Arteveneta, using rare reclaimed French elm that Orio found and fell in love with.
Our Coventry Street shop is open 7 days a week, with a full menu of filter and espresso drinks. There are freshly roasted beans and carefully selected brewing equipment on offer, as well as a small array of freshly baked pastries.
It has been an absolute pleasure to become acquainted with the local vendors and passionate customers that make the South Melbourne Market area the bustling food and beverage destination it has been for 150 years. Stop in for a latte and say hello!
