Hash has made quite the name for itself in Melbourne CBD’s specialty coffee scene, thanks to their attention to detail in every brew and interesting flavours showcased in each blend. They are now moving out to Camberwell to show them how it’s done.
The signature house brew is Reference’s Hash Blend which champions beans from El Salvador, Guatemala, Kenya and India. There’s also a never-ending variety of guest blends and single origin options from around the world that keep things caffeinated and always interesting.
Hash is also known for its Insta-worthy take on the classic hot chocolate – you know the one, with warm lashings of 85% Mörk chocolate poured over house-made fairy floss which adds to the thick, gooey, chocolatey goodness as it melts into one. Camberwell locals will undoubtedly be treated to this signature staple, as well as some new dishes crafted just for the cafe’s new east-side digs. Think brekkie offerings like chorizo and seared scallops with white bean puree, romesco and fried eggs, or something a litter fresher like the almond milk pannacotta with matcha poached pear, honeycomb, passionfruit and candied bananas. Lunch takes the form of crispy duck leg with pan-fried semolina gnocchi, fried eggs and a smokey maple and herb salad, or the slow roasted beef ribs with bourbon BBQ sauce among other cafe classics.
If coffee isn’t your jam, the Camberwell cafe will also feature a selection of Larson and Thompson teas that come complete with special tea timers to ensure that your cup is brewed to perfection. Leaves could hail from anywhere in the world depending on the finest quality of the moment, whether it be spiced Indian Black tea, green tea from China or Burmese Oolong, you can sip away in the knowledge that you’re drinking only the best.
Hash Specialty Coffee is spreading the love and coffee-fuelled reach even further across Melbourne. In the meantime, you’ll have to continue to venture into the city to fix that hot choccy craving, but keep your eyes peeled for further info as Camberwell’s opening date draws nearer.
