    Some fantastic cups of coffee and ???????

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    We "in the Boonies" C.Ss had a fantastic weekend trip to the Jersey Boys in Melbourne last weekend. Obviously we make the most of taking in terrific coffees which we have salivated for ages for before such trips.
    Instead of just a coffee at Di Bella this time we had breakfast and lunch. Oh that coffee and food. ;D Not to mention the very friendly and ever welcoming staff. It was as busy as. The new commercial kitchen will be so welcome for the Chef who was constantly on the go keeping the coffee addicts well fed. ;D
    We also had great coffee and carrot cake at a packed out BBB to the sight of pouring rain. What is rain?
    But the story that we have been dying to share with C.Ss is our journey as the inernet told us to a Melbourne coffee establishment serving Vittoria coffee. It is near the top of Bourke St. My latte was the worst I have ever had. I got up and left it and walked out. Yuk it was as hot as, bitter and watery. No micro foam there. The Missuss hot chocolate was no better. But the way all was made. UNBELIEVABLE. With all the hype of the internet and in the media about the place words failed us. The coffee machine had dried milk on the wand. The hot chocolate was swirled with the wand. The wand was then put straight into a topped up/recycled jug of milk for the coffee with the chocolate milk still on the wand and swirled and heated far too hot. >:(There was no love in the making- just give these two strangers their drinks and they will never know or care. WRONG. When we passed to go to the theatre and came back the place was crowded with people who must not know what a good coffee is when they taste one. We could not believe this. We were stunned. Never again. ::)

    Yes I know the place. Its one of the original intalian establishments and its reputation persists from a bygone era. I think the definition "3rd wave" was invented to differentiate from places like this.

    Melbournites have a lot to thank this place as Im sure much of Melbournes great culture (not just coffee culture) comes from places such as this italian institution.

    However definitely of a bygone era; one thats been surpassed by much better coffee thankfully.
