Melbourne International Coffee Expo 2017

The 2017 Melbourne International Coffee Expo was on in Melbourne last weekend. Held at the Melbourne Show Ground, MICE includes the Australian Coffee Championships,  Australia Barista Championship, PURA Latte Art Championship, Cup Tasters Championship and the Brewers Cup.

Hugh Kelly from One’s Coffee in Canberra  was crowned the Australian Barista Champion for the second year in a row, with his signature  coffee infused with tangerine fairy floss.

The Melbourne International Coffee Expo is a great opportunity for cafe owners, producers, roasters, baristas and suppliers to all gather together. There was plenty there to keep the average coffee lover happy for the morning too.

Highlights for me included the Chai Spice Chai stand with its intensely aromatic tea blends.

Hearing about the soft lunch of World Vision’s “Little Things” coffee company, based right here in Melbourne but with a big vision to be a blessing world wide. A brilliant idea to capture Melbourne’s ongoing obsession with good coffee and use it to help fund community development projects and emergency relief worldwide.

I enjoyed seeing the latte art competition. Some people have got skills!

And some people don’t….

There were also a variety of workshops on offer and heaps of great products to sample. It was interesting to experience such a huge variety of tastes that come from the little coffee bean.Melbourne International Coffee Expo

Melbourne favourites Sensory Lab and Zest Coffee were there and so were Axil Roasters, but there was a huge variety of smaller and larger companies also in attendance.

Coffee lovers look out for next years event!

Don’t forget…….. you can follow me on Facebook or Instagram to keep up to date.
