Continuing my coffee mission…
Name: Cafe Pronto
Location: 160 Ann St, bottom of the Department of Environment building
Purchase time: 11.00am
Barista: tall blonde guy.
The store has the usual chalkboard menus and quiche in the display cabinets. I was a little dubious about the coffee when I saw two women who work in the building go out of their way to avoid the store and walk down to another coffee shop a block away. But it wasn’t THAT bad. The cup wasn’t trendy, the milk was really good but the coffee was burnt. After I finished it I was talking to some people and felt like I was breathing bitter burnt smell all over them. It was supposedly Merlo coffee so I can only assume that it was the barista’s fault.
Verdict: I don’t like feeling like I have bad breath, so I’ll pass.
