Best Melbourne Cafes to try Pour Over Coffee

If you're in Melbourne and are looking for a great coffee you may have come across pour over coffee. Pour over coffee fits under the 'filter coffee' umbrella and is usually referring to a manual brew rather than a machine batch brew. Brewing manual with a gooseneck kettle allows the barista to control all their variables and brew each coffee exactly how it is intended to taste.

At Basic Barista we specialise in souring a wide range of brewing equipment for cafes and home baristas but before you invest in a pour over set up we recommend trying pour over coffee yourself and making sure that you like it. Because of this we have compiled a list of the best Melbourne cafes and brew bars that you can try pour over coffee.

Path Melbourne - North Melbourne

Path Melbourne is situated in North Melbourne, with plenty of delicious coffees from all sorts of international coffee roasters in conjunction with their own brand of coffee beans. Path Melbourne has a gorgeous interior and only serves pour over coffee, espresso and a small selection of pastries & toasties. 

With pour over coffee served directly on their brew bar you can converse with the friendly baristas and learn more about the coffee you are drinking and why it tastes the way it does.

ElParche Coffee Roasters - Coburg

We love ElParche Coffee, our history with ElParche has been long and fruitful, trying a washed Colombian coffee for the first time was exciting but paved a path for myself in the exploration of coffee.

ElParche is a Colombian coffee roaster and has recently opened up a cafe in North Coburg. I have never had a bad coffee and really love their no thrills seasonal espresso blend.
