Walk around the corner of Toorak Road in to Murphy Street and you'll take your final step for about an hour. Once you set foot in this cafe, you wont want to leave for a while.
The Final Step is compact and uses its space well. Communal table in the middle, and single tables by the wall. If you're partial to basking in the sun while wearing your Raybans then there are seats outside too. People walk in every minute - new faces and familiar faces. The staff treat everyone with the same friendliness.
Espresso. Guatemala - Santa Clara A lovely crema was perched on top of this coffee belle of the East, the body below was delicious. This drop made me think of syrup. It was sweet but tart enough to remind me of all things bitter and healthy for the darkened soul. It had sweet caramels with a medium viscosity.
Cold Drip. Guatemala - Santa Clara Sweet and bitter, cool and refreshing. I also detected cocoa undertones and an oily residue on my tongue after several sips, this was a treat. A fantastic beverage with an equally fantastic taste that was well suited for the day's weather.
