New third wave coffee place run by the obligatory barista champion. Cut above the normal, this is serious coffee geek territory in a chrome and wood warehouse floorspace.

Three single origins and two blends available (all from Five Senses but they may be roasting soon) , I had a cracking Brazilian Ipanema with stunning taste and balance. They do the coffees on a six group Synesso with a rather nifty foot pedal for the steam. Also syphons and a clover.

Didn't try the food as they were closing up when I got there but breakfast looked interesting.

Will probably be the hip new coffee kid on the block for a bit and then settle down as a first-class local for Fitzroy hipsters.
