plantation cafe
level 2, shop 253 
melbourne central
melbourne 3000

I had an education this morning at Plantation - I sampled a cold drop coffee (made over night, put on ice and dished up with a solitary ice-cube - not unlike a shot of whiskey) and a syphoned coffee, made before me - and photographed below. Watching a barista craft a syphon coffee is like watching a scientist conducting an experiment - everything is weighed and timed and checked for temperature... The resulting coffee is tea-like in consistency (light and clean) and not unlike wine for its subtle nuances.. the aroma, the initial taste, the after taste....
Usually I just concentrate on photographing cafe interiors - but today I delved a little deeper!
