Considering the rest of the coffee scene in Perth’s east, Bench Espresso made a very welcome addition to Hay Street when it opened its doors in 2011. It sports a pretty casual style; wooden high benches, green walls and some seating (although not a lot).
For $3.90, the coffee is on the expensive side, but they use beans by local roasters, Five Senses which give a smooth and slightly fruity flavour. There are also cold brews available in aeropress, clever dropper or pour over, although the extent of the selection seems a little unnecessary (I’d rather they pick one method and master it).
