Week beginning Australia day - January 26

G'day, this week is Australian themed in celebration of Australia day which falls on the 26th of January. In case you weren't aware Kaffeine is a Australian owned cafe and run to a standard typical of quality Melbourne coffee shops. Every year we celebrate Australia day with plenty of chocolate and strawberry lamingtons, Anzac biscuits, Vegemite and cheddar scrolls, and Australia's finest amber beverage Fosters. The beer isn't served from a long-neck, instead we make a lamb soup with a Fosters based stock.      

This week also see's the gradual take over of me, as I will be taking charge of Kaffeine's newest venture on Eastcastle Street. Khan who has been my right hand woman in the kitchen for the last four years will be taking charge of Kaffeine's Great Titchfield Street kitchen. 

I first met Khan in a greasy spoon cafe in 2009 before Kaffeine opened its doors. We worked together in the Embankment kitchen for 6 weeks making full English breakfast and bacon sandwiches. Though busy it was a very soulless establishment. I eventually quit. The only redeeming quality of this cafe was some of the hard working and dedicated staff. 

A year after Kaffeine opened a position in the kitchen became vacant, this lead to the hiring of Khan. Since this time she has become an important and dedicated member, she had absorbed all I could possibly pass on. I couldn't think of anyone more worthy and deserving to take charge of such a wonderful team and carry on Kaffeine's edibles. A massive congratulations to Khan.

Come in this week and get flaming Aussiefied with a lammo and flatty (lamington and flat white).
