With its myriad of Mediterranean style café’s scattered throughout the heart of the city’s windy laneways and well into its leafy suburbs, Melbourne continues to spoil coffee lovers with its choice of quality caffe lattes, espressos, cappuccino’s, mocha’s and more.
Melbourne’s historical association with the coffee bean dates back the First Fleet arriving in Australia, when coffee houses sprung up as early as 1830. With an influx of European migrants pouring into Victoria’s capital state, Melbourne became a city rather obsessed with coffee drinking. Fast forward to today’s cosmopolitan Melbourne and we see high class Barista’s serve some of the best bean beverages in hundreds of coffee shops throughout the city.
If you would like to explore Melbourne’s Mocha Mecca by foot, you might consider joining Coffee Tours Melbourne, a walking CBD tour that takes you to places that consider coffee their absolute speciality, guided by a professional Barista, Maria Paoli.
As well as school and corporate tours, you can join Coffee Tours Melbourne on a range of three walking excursions, offering a sensory experience in understanding Melbourne’s historical connection to espresso coffee and welcoming third wave coffee making.
