Guys, we don't know about you, but we're on our fourth coffee of the day and coffee = life.
So you better believe we freaked TF out when we heard Bubble Coffee exists in Melbourne. We repeat, BUBBLE COFFEE. If you love this delightfully stimulating concoction's older sibling Bubble Tea, get ready.
Local Fitzroy favourite Industry Beans has really come through for all us caffeine addicts - we mean, they are specialty roasters after all - and this latest creation is a drop everything, find and consume beverage.
The first specialty coffee Bubble Cup was created in 2016 and now Fitzroy Street blend cold brew layered on condensed and soy milks with added coffee-soaked tapioca pearls is available in salted caramel flavour. This is not a drill.
Thankfully the weather is getting warmer and just like we're reaching for our denim shorts, we're also reaching for that sweet, sweet cold brew goodness to cool us down over the spring and summer months.
Speaking of the seasons, we'd be remiss to not mention Industry Beans also just launched a delish new spring menu with hero dishes like Fruit Sashimi, a visual sensation complete with cherry and blood orange cured papaya, wattle seed and pepper leaf rice crisp, coffee chaff milk jelly, compressed watermelon, citrus raindrop cake and coffee caviar and the Porcini Egg, lovingly made with mouth-watering Jerusalem artichoke rosti, parsnip nest, roast mushroom duxelle, wild greens, seared king brown mushrooms, truffle oil and a pea foam.
Finally, if you're anything like us, all your pre-coffee self wants is a seamless order and more coffee - so why not download the Industry Beans app while on route so you can pay with your phone, earn points, and redeem exclusive deals (read: more coffee). You'll also earn points (read: more coffee) for ordering ahead PLUS receive a cool $5 credit when you download the app (if you're no good at maths, that means you can score one of these Bubble Cup beauties for just $2!).
