    Melb - Cafe Day - Flavours of Lakhoum - 17th Dec

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    The December Cafe Day in Melbourne will be at:


    Where: Flavours of Lakhoum

    Address: 175 Swan Street, Richmond

    When: 10:00am - Saturday 17th Dec

    Being our last cafe day for 2005 its my shout for (hopefully) arty lattes while we check out the cafe that is getting plenty of press for interesting decor, food and freaky images in your cuppa.

    Melbourne CSrs can pick-up their December poll beans from the cafe that morning too.

    we can argue about that later Luca.... :)

    I think I heard that Flavours of Lakhoum had some sort of "happy hour" on the 17th Dec... mention CS and get a free coffee. ;D

    Doh ... had I had my wits about me, Id have been a bit more clever about suggesting things that we could exchange. Green, roasted, whatever. I mights go and roast some stuff up now, just for a critique.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    ....Doh ... had I had my wits about me,...
    I know the feeling! :)

    Next cafe day we will be more organised. Maybe we can "round-table" some idea tomorrow over a latte.

    About 10 CSrs took over half the cafe on Saturday morning.

    How was the coffee?
    Well the coffee was Coffex but the art was great on the lattes!

    I thought the cafe looked interesting inside but it did feel a little crowded as it got busier. By all reports the food was great so it looks like a place thats worth giving a try once even if only for the latte art.

    I enjoyed the gathering. The coffee was OK, the art better. Thanks again for organising it, Andy.

    Thanks for organising it Andy!

    The art was good- but I reckon on 5/10 milk texture. Shots somewhat reminiscent of cardboard.....but then I guess that you get that with stale coffee...

    What surprises me is that they go to all that effort to tart up what is in effect a really boring coffee.....ho hum...

    The breakfast however was very good (albeit with pretty cocky service...they reckon theyre pretty good, hey?) ....perhaps we can bring our own coffee next time?? ;)

    It was great to hang with all CSers yet again....Merry Christmas to you all

    Chris

    Yes, I agree with all above. I was about to order some food, but by then they made it clear that we have worn out our welcome, so decided against it.

    I think they do need to work on their customer service, as well as buying better quality coffee :)

    Anyway, nice to have met you all and Merry Xmas from me too ;D

    It was great to be able to put some faces to names at Flavours of Lakhoum. I thought the latte art photos on the walls were the standout feature of the cafe. The food did look pretty good too.

    Merry Christmas everyone!
