Some people are particular about coffee. They think it shouldn’t be polluted with sugar or milk to really experience the flavour. This is probably fair and true, but for those of us who prefer it a little watered down, Black Coffee Pop-Up is here to teach us a thing or two about pure black coffee.

From today and for the next 10, Somewhere Store Gallery will be transformed into a pop-up black coffee brew bar showcasing the best single origin brews from Melbourne’s finest micro-roasters. Serving pour over, French press, aeropress and syphon brew methods, the Black Coffee Pop-Up will expose the Melbourne public to more accessible home alternatives to your local cafe than your Nespresso machine, all with no espresso, no milk and no sugar in sight.

Curated by Mark W Free (Brother Baba Budan), those summoned for the Black Coffee Pop-Up include Somewhere Store, Seven Seeds, Market Lane, Small Batch, Ala Champfest Magazine, The Lifted Brow, Box Brownie and Friendly Foods. The space has been designed by Matthew Clark with No Scribbes and Super Cube artwork throughout.

Back Coffee Pop-Up will run August 8–18 at Somewhere Store Gallery.
