Coffee Down Under: A Taste of Melbourne in Detroit's Financial District

Attention, coffee aficionados of Detroit! There's a new hub brewing in the Financial District, bringing an Australian coffee experience straight to the heart of Motor City. Nestled on Shelby Street, this latest addition isn't just any coffee spot—it's a Melbourne-inspired haven crafted for coffee purists.

What sets Australian coffee apart? Let's start with size. Down Under, they believe in savoring smaller doses of espresso-based magic, served in cups ranging from 8 to 12 ounces. Contrast this with the extra large portions commonly found in American coffee shops, where 20+ ounce cups reign supreme.

But it's not just about the size; it's about the artistry behind each cup. Australian coffee culture thrives on three mainstay beverages: the Flat White, Cappuccino, and Latte. Don't be fooled by the common thread of a single espresso shot and steamed milk—each sip offers a distinctive flavor and texture, cherished by Aussies for their unique profiles.

What's the secret ingredient? Proud Mary Coffee, an award-winning Australian roaster, joins forces with this Detroit gem, ensuring each brew maintains that authentic Australian taste. 

Coffee Down Under's address is 607 Shelby St. Ste. B, Detroit, MI 4822. They are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays, extending their hours till 11 p.m. from Tuesday through Thursday, and keeping the doors open till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

This is a great grab-and-go kinda spot although they have a few seats if you need to sit down and savor your sips. They also have a speakeasy in the back called the Shelby for those looking for something a little stronger. If your into to coffee stop in and try this spot out for yourself, our drinks were delicious!
