Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

A four-day expo for all things coffee

Caffeine addicts and coffee connoisseurs –prepare yourselves. Bringing together the best roasters from around the country, it’s Australia’s largest exhibition of everything coffee; from exotic beans to roasting and brewing apparatus. Get your buzz on with samples from over 20 roasters and witness world coffee champions in the making at some of the global-level comps.

This year the expo is hosting the World Coffee in Good Spirits Championships (where coffee and alcohol come together for world’s most caffeinated cocktail comp), the World Cup Taster’s Championship (which is somewhat of a taste test for professionals) and, for the first time in Australia, The World Latte Art Championship. There’s also the matter of the Australian Barista Championship and Australian Brewers Cup, which will take the winner to Italy for the Worlds.

Following two days of trade-only entry, the showgrounds open to the public on Saturday and Sunday. At last year’s expo over 45,000 cups of coffee were served– sleep’s overrated anyway.
