Cupping it in Campos Coffee

Campos Coffee is a specialty coffee shop in Carlton. It is a short walk from Melbourne University and a short tram ride from RMIT University.  Here they sell lots of coffee and coffee equipment but not much food.
They have a cupping room that is opened to the public on Friday morning at 10am, but you have to book and pay $20 for the cupping session. You also get a bag of coffee.

Today the place was busy at 10am when I came along. Here I ordered toast ($5.00) and their specialty cold drip coffee ($4.50). I also ordered a biscotti ($1.50)
I loved the sourdough toast. And I loved the jam that went with it. Heavenly!!! Yay!!!
The cold drip coffee had hints of plum in it and it was not bitter at all. Very nice and refreshing for a warm summer’s day. 
It seems that a few bloggers reviewed the place. The Age really enjoyed their visit here as it was raved about in their cafe guide.I think I might go back just for their classes and see if Bryan and Ashley might like to join me.

coffee tasting sessions

These are free, fun and a good way to know lots more about good coffee. This is free for everyone.You get to taste them, sniff the beans and coffees and get a chance to mingle with people.
There are usually five or six different blends that you get to try by the different cafes and coffee houses. Each coffee house has their own times for the tastings. It is best to check with them as to which times.
They usually give you a sheet in which to write down the different flavours and textures of the coffees tried.

I did mine at Market lane coffee in Prahran. The guy was pretty friendly and he stuck around for a bit discussing coffee.

Market lane does not much else but coffee. However they do sell coffee beans and their special coffee tastings; 3 cups for 2 people for $12.

These guys are actually quite serious about their coffees. I did have a chance one time to sample their food and loved their bread.

If ever you are around at Prahran Market this is the place to go for coffee.
