Dukes Coffee Roasters at Ross House

Within the heritage-listed facade of Ross House lies a collaborative effort that’s happily resulted in Melbourne’s new cafe.

Windsor roasters Dukes Coffee have set up shop at Ross House, where a dedicated filter bar and La Marzocco espresso machines take centre stage. Reclaimed and recycled construction materials complete the fit out, reflecting a commitment to becoming carbon neutral in the heart of the city. In fact the Dukes team pledge a percentage of their annual sales to environmental causes, while also giving half of the profits from each bag of Ross House beans back into the Ross House community.

Enter through the heritage doors into a sanctuary of textured blondewood, century-old French tiles and echoes of Japanese simplicity. The bench by the window or two seat enclave hides you away, making for a very zen-like coffee experience.

Beyond the beans there’s a selection of pastries including coconut alfajores ($2.8) baked by a local Argentinean lady, matched perfectly with a single-origin picollo ($4) standing at the bar.  For those that fancy themselves a closet barista, Duke’s well-stocked shelves have all the beans, filters and coffee accessories to set you up at home.

The next time you’re in Flinders Lane step into the green door Dukes at Ross House,  sit by the window and watch the world pass by, knowing that your bean is in green hands.
