I’ve been making Nick Shelton coffee ever since I moved to Melbourne. He runs quite a fine publication known as Broadsheet.
For the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, he managed to co-ordinate six cafes and roasteries into a lovely little pop up shop on Crossley st. Each day, a different team hosted the space and overcame the various obstacles such as no running water, drainage or air flow (apart from one door at the end of a long narrow space). Some of the coffee that was made was absolutely mind blowing and I am so chuffed that Nick took it upon himself to put specialty coffee and the talent of Australian coffee business in the lime light.
Market Lane was lucky enough to snare the last day, Toshi and I getting in early to dial in the new Seasonal Espresso (the Brazil Paseo Rubi) and make some delicious pour overs of the Guatemalan Ernersto. We were totally slammed all day, selling out of everything and running out of coffee by 3pm. A nice fitting end to working 20 days in a row!
