If you’re a coffee fan, you won’t want to miss Melbourne’s Historical Coffee Trek – a tour led by a true aficionado with many years’ experience of the industry.
During the walk, you’ll be led round the city’s roasting houses and original cafes, where you can sample the different varieties on offer and learn about the skill involved in making the perfect cup. As you travel, your guide will provide you with the historical background, including how early immigrants contributed to the industry’s development in the city.
Afterwards, why not go it alone and make your way around to see which cafes catch your interest? You might decide to call in at airy Seven Seeds, which mixes rustic and contemporary elements and boasts a glass-walled roasting room at its very centre.
For some strong Italian coffee, head to the traditional Pellegrini’s on Bourke St, where you can sip your coffee in a 1950s ambiance.
There are numerous Caffenatics shops dotted throughout the city and it’s worth popping into one to see some real passion from the baristas, who have represented Australia on the world stage in the art of extraction.
A thoroughly modern alternative is Sensory Lab – a cafe with a high-tech, clinical appearance that offers single-origin, exotic coffees.
Free-spirited, bohemian types, on the other hand, might prefer to take a seat in 1000 £ Bend, an interesting cafe-meets-cinema-meets-gallery, in which you can witness art shows and fashion fairs while seated on furniture picked up from flea markets.
