When I first arrived in St Kilda I had an early morning appointment with my colleague. At 7am, still bleary from sleep but with a tram to catch, I simply did not have time to leg it from the station to the nearest coffee shop and back again. Enter My Coffee Stop, which commenced in early December. Occupying a unique location, that opens straight onto the tram platform of St Kilda Station, opposite the busy IGA Supermarket in Fitzroy St, My Coffee Stop was our saviour, and has been for many a visitor from the city.

Oodi is the man that brought this specialised espresso concept from Sydney to partake in our world famous coffee culture, the wealth of knowledge this man has about coffee and how to prepare it is legendary. In the past he called his many coffee outlets around Sydney: ‘Espresso Bar Picasso’ and he always chose high turnover but unusual locations for his shops; like Bunnings garden Centres, Universities – anywhere with a high concentration of busy people!

My Coffee Stop offers a wide range of classic and syrup coffees, some well-known and loved, others exciting new concoctions. I opted for a silky and sweet Hazelnut Latte, Food Dude a punchy short black. We had the choice of these exotic versions: Caramel, Vanilla, Macadamia, or even an Irish Cream Latte, as well as Caffe Mocha, white Velvet, and Caffe Viennese – An extraordinary collection!

My Coffee Stop uses La Zumba’s Rumba, an award-winning blend of seven different coffee beans which has been described as ‘just right,’ and is an often underrated discovery when it comes to coffee. This extends to the price too; with $3 for a small and $4 for a regular, and no extra charge for the customer’s quirks and tastes. The sharp and snappy service compiled with a bold blend will be the downfall and creation of many a coffee addict. There’s also a nice selection of snacks and nibbles if you’ve a hole to fill. It’s in a great place to grab your fix if you’re in a hurry to get off, but remember, there’s always another tram coming, so you may as well sit back and enjoy your coffee.

Remember there is always courteous and friendly Oodi to greet you and make you good coffee lovers feel comfortable at ‘My Coffee Stop’ – it’s worth a stop!
