    Re: south melbourne

    Went to dead man espresso at 35 market street south Melbourne on the weekend (http://www.deadmanespresso.com.au/). The place opened about a month ago and has a beautiful clean and open fitout. Food was great, too - I had an omelette, other dishes included a panzanella salad, a "BLT" pork belly sandwich with gazpacho and some scones with their own strawberry jam.

    All that aside, the dudes running it worked at st ali for years and many of the other staff have been familiar faces at melbournes better cafes, which means that you are in safe hands for coffee. They are using coffee from 7 Seeds and offer espresso and pourover. Their custom blend includes some aricha. I had the 7 Seeds blend, which on this occasion was rich with a cocoa finish as both espresso and in milk. (id have loved to have had more coffee, but I had just come from a cupping.)

    Cheers,
    Luca

    And the spread continues. 8-) 3 years ago you could count on 1 hand the top places in Melbourne. I reckon you would be hard pressed to pick a list smaller then 20 of cafes making the noises that I like to hear. And you would be missing a whole bunch. :)

    Some St.Ali staff left to form their own creation? I wonder if they got over working under someone trying to buy out all the best espresso bars in Melbourne
