[Melbourne] In a country known for its exceptional coffee, Patricia Coffee Brewers was named as “The best coffee in Australia” in a Yelp survey.

Located at the corner of Little Bourke Street and Little William Street, the café may need some googling to find, but it is a gem worth the search for coffee aficionados.

The coffee shop is known to roasts its own beans and serves a very high quality, consistent cup of coffee.

However, this may not be the type of space you would sit down to enjoy a cup of cuppa, as the place is small and consistently draws crowds and queues.

You will find office workers, tourists and others crowding around the space talking to each other, leaning on the walls and sitting on the crates.

This is what happened to us, as I found myself squeezed in a corner with friends, but still found pleasure in their coffee.

The baristas and service crew were all friendly, and appeared to have a deep passion for producing the perfect cup of coffee.

It was not uncommon for customers to have conversations with the baristas.

Vibes were fun, had a bit of an Italian espresso bar influence, but it was also very laid back which is typical of the Australian lifestyle.

A menu hung in the middle and it displayed the three different types of coffee – White, Black, and Filter.

The Black Coffee went for AUD$4 (SGD$4.18), White Coffee at AUD$4.30 (SGD$4.49) and Filter Coffee at AUD$4.00 (SGD$4.18).

I ordered a White, and relished that the coffee was both smooth and moderately strong.

To me, the coffee experience is always a whole package. Perhaps I wished for more space and less chatter to enjoy it better, therefore I was more in-tuned to say Brother Baba Budan and Dukes Coffee Roasters which also serve outstanding coffee.

The Filter had brilliant depth and complex flavour. Sip it slowly and let your tongue take pleasure.

The only thing is, after drinking this, you may start missing having good coffee when you get back home.
