He Says

Over the last couple of years, the magicians at the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival have been conjuring up various pop-up cafes at Queensbridge Square. This year, they’ve built up the aptly named Urban Coffee Farm and Brew Bar. It’s been assembled from a bunch of wooden pallets  and shipping creates, with a smattering of coffee plants; very organic. Each day a different darling of the Melbourne Coffee scene serves the coffee, and during the evening a different cocktail bar serves drinks. Simple.

Unfortunately the weather hasn’t really been playing along temperature wise, as mid-30s isn’t really a coffee friendly temperature. The queues in the morning are as deep as you’d expect from a MFWF event, but lunchtime is a great time to sneak down for a coffee.

He Drank?

Although they do offer a rather good looking selection of pastries, I’ve only managed to get there after lunch.  These coffee below is from Proud Mary,  who were serving it up on the Thursday 7th March. My coffee was a single-origin short black from Guatemala, and even with the heat it was one of the best coffees I’ve ever had.

To Conclude

Even with the weather, the Urban Coffee Farm and Brew Bar is a must see. Be quick, it finishes up on the 17th of March.
