Melbourne is obsessed with coffee and has the most cafes and restaurants per person than any other city in the world! This 2-3 hour walking tour takes you to places that really care about the origin, roast and brewing of the bean. By the end of the tour you'll be ordering coffee like an expert from even the most complicated Melbourne coffee menu. You’ll sample four of Melbourne’s best cups of coffee, while your guide talks you through the crop-to-cup story of the coffee bean’s journey from farmers to roasters to baristas. This is the perfect opportunity for home enthusiasts to chat about coffee making and Melbourne’s coffee culture, all while exploring Melbourne's laneways. Please note that non-coffee drinkers are well catered for, so if you don't drink coffee you'll still have fun!

Loved every minute of it. Great to understand coffee: it's source, history, how to get the most out of a coffee bean, and the local business that are passionate about it. Great to do the taste comparisons. Monique was a wealth of knowledge and a lovely person to boot!
Unmissable Melbourne experience

The coffee lovers walking tour was the perfect blend of exploration, information and superb coffee, hosted by the warm, fun and super-knowledgable Monique.

Her passion for coffee and Melbourne shone through three hours of chatting, strolling and sipping, which went by all too quickly.

I particularly noticed how beautifully she included a participant who didn't drink coffee. No fuss, no eye-rolling – Monique ensured this person felt fully included and welcome. Likewise, she made it easy and comfortable to say if a certain coffee wasn't to your taste.

Whether you love coffee or not, you will love this tour. Unreservedly recommended.
Fantastic tour!
