EST. 2018

In 2017 we sold our much-loved café on Collins St and set out on a mission of bringing the specialty coffee experience to the outer western suburbs. By chance we stumbled on a little gem called The Crooked Fork. The café had an enormous amount of potential and with its narrow shop front was perfect for recreating the inner city feel. In the months to follow we purchased, renovated, and created ‘Notorious Espresso’ and set out on bringing the specialty cof fee experience to the heart of Watton St. Fast forward a couple of years and after putting our heart and soul, Notorious Espresso is one of the best known cafes in the western suburbs serving all day breakfast and lunch and some of the best coffee roasted by our friends at Veneziano Coffee Roasters.

Ready to bring the Notorious experience home with you? Our team have put together “how to brew” guides, our way… So read on and we hope you enjoy MORE LIFE at home.
