MELBOURNE | Puzzle Coffee is a tiny new coffee spot on Swanston Street. I recently popped in to take a look for What’s On Melbourne. It’s a long, narrow space. Bright, with clean lines and light timber furnishings, and a focus on the coffee bar.
The offering is simple. Specialty, artisan coffee using ethically sourced beans from around the world, and a socially conscious, environmentally responsible philosophy that extends from bean to cup.
On the menu, you’ll find a handful of hot and cold espresso and filter based coffees, along with a few flavoured drinks like ‘dirty’ matcha latte and hot chocolate. There’s a house blend and rotating selection of limited beans, which you can purchase whole or ground to take home. The coffee is quality and tastes great.
Drinks are served in edible, compostable, biodegradable cups developed by Melbourne-based company, I Am Not Paper. Straws are also compostable. There’s even an option to purchase your coffee in a grain-based, edible cup.
To further sweeten the deal, Puzzle donates 1 tree for every 100 cups of coffee and for each bag of coffee beans sold.
