‘I really enjoyed the tour. The walk took us to four very different venues and thanks to our guide Monique’s knowledge I could really appreciate each coffee tasting we did. Monique was very friendly and by the end of the tour the whole group was chatting and laughing easily. I would recommend this tour to others.’

    An absolutely fantasitic experience, and an extremely informative walk through South Melbourne. I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee stops, and would absolutely recommend the tour to all coffee lovers and enthusiasts, as well as those just out for a bit of a history tour.

    This was a very good tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable on both the history of coffee of Melbourne, as well as the coffee industry overall. She was able to field just about any question we raised. I'd particularly recommend this to anyone visiting from the US, as the typical 'filter' or 'drip' coffee served in the US is relatively rare in Melbourne. The highlight for me was the short tour of the roasting process. I'd recommend the tour to any coffee connoisseur who enjoys sampling and learning about coffee in the cities they visit.

  • What You Can Expect

    The Victorian capital is famous for its coffee culture, and this wonderfully relaxed Melbourne Coffee Lovers Walking Tour is a great way to sample some of the best and most innovative cafe offerings across the CBD.

    You’ll meet your friendly guide and the rest of your small group of caffeine devotees in Degraves Street — one of the city’s most famous cafe strips. Melbourne’s network of laneways like this one are packed with trendy coffee shops and hole-in-the-wall cafes, and you’ll visit four contrasting venues during this tour. You’ll also learn about the diverse range of blends and brewing methods on offer.

    As you savour the flavours at each cafe, your guide will take you through the history of Melbourne’s coffee culture and explain the journey of the coffee bean from the farm, to the roasters, and finally into the hands of the city’s celebrated baristas.

    You’ll be encouraged on this Melbourne Coffee Lovers Walking Tour to be adventurous. Try different styles of coffee, and make the most of the specialties that each venue offers. The baristas you’ll see in action take their craft very seriously! Take their advice and sample what they suggest (and that usually means taking your coffee black to experience the nuanced flavours of the bean).

    When you’re in the coffee capital of Australia, it makes sense to immerse yourself in the cafe scene, and this Melbourne Coffee Lovers Walking Tour is the perfect way to do it.
