24 days of coffee Bench Espresso review by Frank
With Bench Espresso being just around the corner from Essence of Coffee Pier Street, my last 24 days of coffee review, I decided to try both venues in the one morning. With minimal signage to guide us, we were starting to think that maybe we had missed it but then we saw a small crowd milling on the footpath and our next coffee stop, Bench Espresso.
While small and with limited seating, Bench Espresso had a great modern style.
I ordered my regular, flat white ($3.90) and my friend went with a long mac topped up ($4.40). We had every intention of just sticking with our coffee order but on seeing an amazing looking toasted spinach, olive and brie savoury muffin ($4.50) leave the kitchen, we couldn’t resist.
We didn’t have to wait long for our coffees, or the muffin. Both coffees had a slightly bitter taste to them to start but softened and smoothed out to deliver a great finish and lasting taste. On a side note, the muffin was sublime from start to finish!
The coffees were good on their own but great with the muffin which tipped our score for Bench Espresso to an 8/10.
