A Friend Of Mine

i briefly mentioned Melbourne based design company¬†A Friend of Mine¬†(quite literally) a few years ago when i was blabbing about how i like my coffee, and in the same breath how much i liked their identity design for a coffee bar in London called Milkbar . they are unsurprisingly still doing amazing design work – some of which i couldn’t resist sharing

flat white

A flat white is a coffee beverage prepared by pouring the creamy steamed milk from the bottom of the jug over a single shot (30ml) of espresso, it is most commonly found in New Zealand and Australia.

this is how i like my coffee (for future reference). the foam has to be so thick and creamy, that when you drop a sugar cube into it – it doesn’t sink. none of this bubbly watery foam on top of tepid filter coffee crap (no thanks, mugg ‘n bean).

speaking of coffee, i love the look of this australian run coffee bar in london called milk bar, done by an australian design company called a friend of mine. ‘milk bar’ is an aussie term for corner shop – somewhere you run to for a litre of milk and perhaps a loaf of bread. funnily enough, they have another coffee place in the same neighbourhood called flat white – both are top rated for their coffee & atmosphere.
