Bench Espresso Review


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).

Regular: $3.90

Atmosphere 3/5
Value 2/5
Quality 3/5
Overall 7/10
