Saturdays NYC was established in 2009, when the trio behind this label opened their first store in New York’s trendy Soho neighbourhood. The concept? Coffee, men’s fashion, surf and lifestyle, and laid-back vibe. Less than a decade later, and Melbourne finally has its very own Saturdays NYC. The 8th store globally, Saturdays NYC Melbourne Its located on Albert Coates Lane at QV, a leading shopping precinct in Melbourne’s CBD.
The fit out is minimalist in style, with pale timber benches, and clean lines. What caught my attention, was the large concrete coffee bar in the front window. The La Marzocco Linea PB extracts both a house blend from Artificer; and single origin beans from Everyday Coffee. I enjoyed an espresso made from a pulped natural Brazilian Sempre Viva. Grown at 1150 meters above sea level in the Chapada Diamantina region, this Catuai varietal exhibited a full body, with butterscotch and dark chocolate notes.
