Do you think you know coffee? The Secret Concoction Called ‘Magic’ That Real Caffeine Lovers Ask For In Cafes

  • ‘Magic’ coffee is well known in the Melbourne coffee scene.
  • Coffee contains the ‘perfect’ ratio of coffee and milk, experts say
  • The term was coined around 2006 when the drink became a feature of Brunswick.

True coffee lovers have revealed the must-try secret blend available in every cafe and claim you can never go back to your average latte or flat white.

The addictive ‘Magic’ brew can’t be found on any coffee shop menu, but top baristas and coffee connoisseurs know all about this super-strong brew.

The drink, which developed in the cafe-lined streets of Melbourne in the 2000s, is technically a double ristretto, a short shot of a more concentrated espresso, served with three quarters of flat white coffee.

Despite its popularity in Melbourne, arguably the most coffee-focused city in the world, ‘Magic’ is still largely unknown in the rest of the country and the world.

When the subject is raised in Melbourne, reactions are evenly split between nonchalant disdain (old news, it’s been around for years) and bewilderment (what are you talking about?), The Age reported.

“Absolutely, five years ago it was a barista-only cafe, but in the last two years people are trying something a little stronger,” Bowery to Williamsburg manager Edith Gilfedder said.

Coffee is said to have originated in Brunswick “before coffee culture got too crazy.”

Trademark researcher Zenon Misko, who enjoyed a double ristretto for dinner and a flat white for takeout, says he had the idea of ​​pairing the coffees one day.

The coffee is prepared with a double ristretto before finishing with a 3/4 flat white.

After trial and error, he realized that three-quarters of a flat egg white was the “perfect” amount of milk to put on top.

“Both of us (Zenon and his barista) enjoyed the drink and I just told him this is a really magical drink, and it’s been coined ‘Magic’ ever since.”

Ordering the drink signals to the staff that you are an ‘infiltrator’, according to some.
