305 Hampton Street, Hampton, VIC, 3188
True to its name, this place is all about the fundamentals of espresso. It sells espresso machines, coffee accessories, fresh-roasted blends and exotic syrups, as well as java by the cup for immediate consumption. Don’t come here looking for a slap-up breakfast -food is limited to a small selection of sweet treats.
This place is in the heart of the Hampton shopping strip, close to the station, and does a good job of keeping the local bayside crowd perky and refreshed. We note that besides demonstrating and selling a range of coffee machines, the shop also offers servicing and repairs. There’s also a range of drinking chocolates and teas.
Our efficient barista serves up a very quaffable espresso that’s nutty and sweet, albeit a little watery and quite short on the palate. It’s a fine heart-starter nonetheless, made from the El Salvador Organic blend of the week. The latte boasts an excellent crema and rich, creamy consistency which conveys a fruity, spicy flavour and almond and toffee aroma.
