Brother Baba Budan

The first thing that strikes you when you, when you walk into Brother Baba Budan, is the unusual decor. If you haven't been there before, you can't help but be struck by the image of tens of chairs suspended high from the ceiling - a visual metaphor for where their coffee will take you perhaps. Brother Baba Budan was a 17th Century Sufi who smuggled coffee beans out of Mocha in Yemen; it is from here that coffee is believed to have spread to the rest of the world. But what makes Brother Baba Budan stand out most is its superb coffee. BBB is the little brother of Mark Dundon's South Melbourne institution St Ali, from whence their coffee comes. As well as having one of the few Clover's in Melbourne [perfect for tasting single origin coffees], the Brother pumps out shots of espresso, as near to perfection as possible, time after time. It's not often that inner city workers have the chance to sample great coffee - but here's your chance to sample the best!
