Aunty Peg's coffee roasting warehouse caught my eyes a few weeks ago as I was driving into the city. Located on Wellington St in Collingwood, it's a great place to drop in if you are in need of a caffeine hit or want to get a behind the scenes glimpse at the coffee making process. As you walk in there is a retail shop selling coffee paraphernalia, including V60, Clever Dripper, AeroPress and French press devices, T-shirts, books on coffee, and other cool gifts!

It's the latest specialty cafe to hit the coffee scene and brought to you by the founder of Proud Mary, Nolan Hirte. Aunty Peg's only serves black coffee, so don't expect any lattes or cappuccinos here!

As you enter the vast industrial space, the smell of coffee being roasted hits you. Proud Mary's three roasting machines are clearly visible from the bar in the connecting warehouse. Tom and Danni are happy to take you through a tour of the coffee roasting process and explain what regions and farms their green beans are sourced from. Selected only from the best coffee beans on the planet!

A huge bar counter sits across the space and you can enjoy watching the preparation as Danni pours some cold drip coffee for you to sample the full coffee drinking experience. The coffee here is the focal point and you can enjoy a coffee flight. The concrete benches, black taps and the three single-grip espresso handles serve cold brew coffee just like beer taps! Way too cool!

You can learn to brew with their skilled baristas, stock up on beans and tour the working roastery. This place is the perfect stop for all you caffeine addicts!

Or if like me you prefer to drink tea, don't despair they also serve from a selection of loose leaf specialty teas, including Oolong, White, Sencha or Black teas. From the tea offerings, I selected the Himalayan Spring White tea from Nepal. A delicate white tea with a flowery aroma. Grown over 2130m above sea level, it emulates the sweet mountain air from where it's sourced.
