325 Flinders Lane
Many Melbourne roasters now have an own-brand or attached cafe. Consider Abbotsford Club, First Pour, Industry Beans, Campos, Code Black etc.
And so now we have Toby's Estate on Flinders Lane. This is a regular cafe - in that there is a commercial kitchen cooking up a storm and a selection of (Toby's estate, naturally) coffee but it is also a showroom for the brand, education facility (cupping and courses available) and a store, with coffee, books and coffee making equipment available.
On my visit the cafe was packed with suits. This is convenient for city workers and the slick image seems to be attracting a corporate crowd. In saying that my coffee was definitely worth the visit, and with several varietals on offer there would be something for every coffee preference. Yet another one to try on your next CBD visit!
