Clement Coffee, Melbourne

Clement Coffee

clementcoffee.com

Clement Coffee was created by St Ali’s former barista Kris Wood. Kris Wood’s original plans was to all bring the coffee knowledge that he has learnt in Melbourne back to Perth and open up a successful coffee shop of his own. Things didn’t go to plan, once Kris got to Melbourne he didn’t want to leave. Since opening its doors, this speciality coffee shop has proven to be a popular asset to South Melbourne’s vibrant coffee scene. Clement Coffee is also part of the St Ali Family. St Ali, Sensory Lab and Clement Coffee are all roasted off site at the same location and Andy Todd, a Production Roaster for the St Ali Family, is the sole roaster for Clement Coffee. Below is a quick review of our experience using Clement Coffee..

The online store offers a small selection consisting of 1x Blend, 2x Single origins and 1x Decaf.We originally ordered Fazenda Rainha Micro Lot, Espresso 250g $17.00 but unfortunately they were out of stock. They promptly emailed us to let us know and suggested the Condor San Agustin 250g $17.00 instead

Would you use this roaster again?
Yes, we would. The roasting dates were good and the flat rate postage was affordable. There was a limited selection available online so we would mostly likely check their online store again later down the track to see if there is anything new and interesting to buy.

Fitzroy Street Blend, Industry Beans Melbourne

Online store:
Industry Beans offers three blends, five single origins and one decaf with their online store. The price for their beans ranges from $14 – $19 for their 250g bags. Grind options – whole beans/ espresso/ stovetop/ French press

Our favourite pick:
We loved all three blends/origins from Industry Beans but if we HAD to choose, we would pick Karimikui AA Kenya 250g $17.00. This light/medium bodied single estate had us hooked from the very first sip. We thoroughly enjoyed its deliciously sweet fruity notes.

Would you use this roaster again?
Yes we definitely would! We were happy with all three of our bags of coffee. Buying online was easy and our coffee didn’t take long at all to arrive.

Clean minimal layout and easy to use. The online store provides info on each of the blends/single origins, tasting notes and technical details such as processing, harvest, region, they even included which roasting equipment their used!

Our favourite pick: Our favourite was their Dukes Espresso Blend $14.00 300g Balanced, full bodied and complex, vibrant, red apple, caramel, milk chocolate and cherry. This full bodied blend held up perfectly in milk coffee beverages such as lattes and flat whites. I thought this blend had a little richness to it as well which I absolutely loved.

Use this roaster again? Yes we would. The coffee that we got was delicious and we were really happy with how quick the shipping was (purchased on Friday and received our beans on Wednesday!)
