Single origin and specialty blends of coffee have grown sharply in popularity over the last few years and most cafes in Geelong offer one alternative to their regular blend. John Doe Specialty Coffee Geelong is so serious about specialty coffee that they started out three years ago with a core commitment that they would always have three grinders running. Now that’s choice!

On top of that, the blends they run are created exclusively for John Doe Specialty Coffee Geelong by Roastcraft. Carlos and Nicky are the owners of both John Doe, and Roastcraft Coffee Roasters, which explains the obsession with great coffee and the great lengths they’ve gone to so that the cafe has an outstanding selection available. As you can see from the feature image at the top of this article, the results are perfect.

John Doe Specialty Coffee Geelong is located on the ground floor of the Bendigo Bank building on Ryrie Street and is a favorite with Government and hospital workers in the area. With vintage touches such as the cake stand that’s actually an original hand-made Mobilgas display cabinet and a vertical flower garden, the atmosphere is top notch and matches the great selection of coffee.
