  • Trip to Melbourne

    Hi all,

    I will be attending a training course at Novotel St-Kilda later this month, and was hoping some of you Melbourne based CSs could give me advice regarding nearby places where I can sample some good coffee please

    I will have to rely on public transport, and wont have much time during the days , and like to be able to sleep at night

    Have heard of TMR and really would like to get there, think St Ali is not that far away, not sure of the addresss, and there is one or two others isnt there?

    Any help/comments appreciated.

    Regards
    Bullitt

        If you only go to one, make it St Ali. Catch a tram to Clarendon St Sth Melb and get off near Coles supermarket, St Ali is in a small st, or lane to be more precise, opposite the Northern end of the carpark which is currently a huge hole in the ground. There is a Vintage Cellars bottle shop on the corner. Yarra Place. NOT Yarra St, which runs parallel. Its very easy to miss if youre not looking for it. Grab yourself a bag of Dettera beans while youre there, they are deluxe.

          Map to St Ali attached. Daterra is an incredible farm that packages about a gagillion different blends of different varieties of coffee grown on their farm. I think that the one that Bart was referring to is the sweet collection, which is, as the name says, very sweet. Mark has also gotten in some of the reserve espresso blend, which we werent actually all that impressed with in the very first two-minute fool-around. But maybe Mark has dialled it in now. Anyhoo, ask the staff for more advice if you want some Daterra.

            Thanks for that Bart and Luca.
            I have already worked out the itinerary to make sure I can get to St Ali, and am looking forward to it.
