Any self-respecting food enthusiast with an interest in writing will attest that a Google search of your latest and favourite hangout is a must. Converge some compelling social media with a good shop experience and you're doing well. For Everyday Coffee, their mantra to 'provide consistently outstanding coffee through hard work, research, education and evolution; everyday' might sound like a complicated Twitter bio, but luckily, it's actually as simple as pie.
In the safe, supremely experienced hands of Mark Free, Joe Miranda, Aaron Maxwell and Hugo Atkins, Everyday Coffee is nearly all about the black brew — the whole 365 days of the year. Undoubtedly these boys know their stuff, but things have been charmingly pared back to make sure your morning order doesn’t become a ten-minute affair. Coffee aficionados can rest assured that they will be in good company, and those appreciative of the craft will be warmly welcomed; tea lovers, you're also included.
Everyday Coffee's rotating selection of beans and roasts on offer ($3.50-$5) skims the surface of a fondness for collaboration, in both food and in thought. Coffee accompaniments come in the form of bagels reminiscent of a simpler time ($6) and a virtuous house made muesli ($8.50) that is, without fault, guaranteed to start your day perfectly. Also on offer is a rotating selection of carefully curated sweets for your afternoon lull, such as the sickeningly pleasing pecan pie ($7). Some of Melbourne’s best suppliers have been called upon for the task, including Bakewell & Co., Lune Croissanterie (but not on weekends!) and Fatto a Mano.
Interspersing caffeine with art, the custom-built menu lightboxes double as a space to feature work from local artists and photographers. Currently displaying a shot of an Everyday favourite, Kendrick Lamar, the pieces will rotate on a regular basis.
Offering the perfect space for nearby creatives and coffee lovers alike, Everyday Coffee stands out for its attention to detail. The name may suggest something otherwise, but don’t be fooled. It's about finding the best pleasures in the daily grind, and, with no time to waste resting on their laurels, Everyday Coffee does just that.
