361 Hawthorn Road, Caulfield, VIC, 3162
This small place is easy to miss from the car, but plenty of locals have found it out -even if Mocha Green is positioned on a slightly uninspiring Hawthorn Road strip. The decor is crisp and fresh, made mellow with dark-wood details, a glass-fronted display counter full of exquisite looking pastries, and a selection of Tea Drop teas for anyone not on the coffee bandwagon.
The Wega by the door hisses and steams as people grab takeaway orders through the window, nodding a hello to the flat out barista.
Despite the hustle, my Di Bella espresso still manages to catch me off guard. Thick and mellow in the mouth, it finishes with a surprising burst of biscuity caramel which makes the mouthful quite unexpected and delightful. And then a full cream latte proceeds to steal the show. With added milk, the burst of slightly bitter caramel becomes a longer toffee finish in the mouth. Milky and sweet, it’s lovely and still, somehow, pleasantly unexpected.
