Melbourne’s growing love affair continues to grow, thanks the numerous coffee shops popping up around the landscape of the city. As a result, Melbourne is now recognised as part of the strongest specialty coffee scenes in the world.
Australia’s largest coffee-dedicated event, Melbourne International Coffee Expo comes to Melbourne showgrounds at the end of May. Coffee lovers can enjoy coffee tasting, barista classes, roasting workshops and meet the world’s leading coffee industry personalities and decision-makers.
This year the Melbourne International Coffee Expo will host the World Barista Championships and World Brewers Cup, where title holders from over 50 countries will compete to take home to top title.
The Melbourne International Coffee Expo welcomes trade visitors only on the 23rd and 24th of May ($20 for a one-day pass, or $40 for a four-day pass) and is open to the general public on the 25th and 26th of May ($20 for a weekend pass).
