The creative team at Smudge Publishing have done it again with a stunningly curated guide on Specialty Coffee in Melbourne (one of our favourite topics).
This gorgeous book follows the journey of coffee from crop to cup, exploring flavours and origins. As serious coffee makers ourselves, we are loving the detailed illustrative how-to guides for Aeropress, Chemex, Cold Drip, Plunger, Stovetop, Syphon and V60.
We are especially proud of page 172 in the North Side chapter, featuring our Brunswick East store, the birthplace of Padre Coffee, and where we still roast today. Using beautiful illustration and photography, this is a comprehensive guide to coffee culture and the incredible Melbourne cafe scene.
If you’re not able to make it in to one of our own stores, the book also compiles a lovely collection of some of our favourite places to enjoy a Padre coffee. Here’s looking at you: League of Honest Coffee, The Diplomat, Footscray Milking Station. If you are as serious about coffee as we are, or just in love with Melbourne, this is an all encompassing bible for home, or the perfect gift.
