    can vouch for the quality of coffee (altho the service can vary...)
    but it's OK cos they are lobbying to get cyclists licensed
    :rolleyes:

    A problem, and I'm sure I'm not the only one here. Too much robusta in the blend, first thing in the morning, makes me horribly sick-in-the-guts. (hardly a terrific way to start the day :eek: ) Anyway I prefer Arabica such as the Friends of Aileu coffee available for sale at several councils such as Yarra, Moreland & Darebin.

    They could be having a coffee before they leave - lot's of bunches meet there as a departure point.

    I'm a regular there and I must say that the service isn't as good as it was say 2-3 years ago.

    Talking about the poser aspect, I'll never forget one wet day in the late morning when a rider turned up dressed in white riding gear. It was clean - either he'd just riden 1 km from home or had a rear mudguard on his carbon fibre bike.

    But generally I don't think the Cafe Wanker title really fits - if so, it could be a name branded to a host of cafes popular with cyclists.

    Have you tried Beraldo, down the bottom of High St hill? They do a number of blends and if you buy some coffee there you can have a free cuppa. Their house blend is pretty nice.
