Melbourne and coffee go together like Summer and the beach.
It’s a match made in heaven.
With what seems to be a coffee shop on every corner and lane way you’re
never to far of a walk from some of the best coffee the city has to offer.
So on that note we hope you enjoy our list…

After lengthy stints at some of Melbourne’s finest roasters Aaron Maxwell and Mark Free set out to do it themselves. Many hours and many conversations later Everyday was born, a company that would serve up a quality brew in a casual environment.
Five years on and Everyday Coffee has 3 coffee shops, a bakery, a sparkly new Loring Smart Roaster and a growing family of the best people in the biz

Omar’s was created to achieve one thing; to get people excited about coffee. Quality without compromise is their promise, and their method. If they don’t believe a coffee to be the very best it can be, they simply won’t sell it.
Our years of travel, research and experimentation, as both coffee lovers and students of the industry, have helped them beat a stringent, quality-obsessed pathway from farm to cup. They begin by sourcing seasonal, fresh beans from farmers around the world who have toiled for years to make their produce exceptional.
Be it advice on how best to prepare it, drink it, or develop a love of it, Omar’s cuts through the caffeine palaver to forge informed, personal connections through coffee.

We also suggest to keep an eye out for coffee shops supplying coffee from Rumble and Wood and Co. They don’t have their own cafe to showcase the wonderful coffee they create but they do supply plenty of great cafes in Melbourne and around Australia.

Located in a beautiful heritage building in Melbourne sits Dukes Coffee Roasters. With a mininalist fitout mainly built with recycled tiles and timber Dukes have created a great partnership with this grand building.
Coffee is of course the highlight but you can also pick up a pastie or two while inside.

As you walk in and read the writing on the floor (Standing Room Only) you feel like your you have entered a traditional Italian Espresso Bar. A simple coffee menu with black, white or filter coffee lets you know you are in coffee heaven.

Step back into 1980’s Miami with the amazing fit out at Vacation. Vacation roast coffee out of the Bureaux Collective (lets’s say a co-working space for roasters).
Coffee is center stage here but you can also get some delicious food to partner your coffee.
