Bendigo's Best Coffee
« on: 11/06/2014, 02:25 AM »
After a number of weeks walking past the new coffee place in Mitchell St. Bendigo, (street running off from the fountain in CBD) I finally paid a visit. The Naked Espresso Bar does coffee. There's a fridge with drinks but near as I can tell, no food.

Jesse used to manage t'Hooft, one of the better coffee places in town - the other was The Old green Bean - and he's got a Slayer 3 group machine & has a Costa Rica bean for black/macch's and Velvet Assassin for milks. I walked in and mentioned I'd been past a few times and just wanted to see if it lived up to the name - peered around the machine and saw 3 x naked PF's - he laughed and mentioned it was good not to get comments about clothing.

He uses VST baskets - from what I saw 22g's but used a weighed 18g of grind for a double. That leaves almost 1cm from the top in the VST's.

So, long strong macchiato - he watches his nakeds on the pre-infusion setting until he judges it right time and then flicks to pour - thick honey ensues. Because I asked for long and strong he did it twice. Uses the same double wall glasses I got for Xmas - a great innovation for delicate fingers although mine got inured to hot glass a long time back.

Not a trace of bitterness nor sourness and a crema per double shot of over 1cm. I asked for sugar but tasted it first - didn't need the sugar. I can't recall the last time a caf


Never doubt there is Truth but doubt that you have it.
