Melbourne is the coffee capital of the world. Since the Italian migration of the 1950s that brought espresso to our shores, coffee has been revolutionary in building the vibrant cafe and restaurant culture of Melbourne.
Melbourne boasts incredible talent when it comes to coffee. Hosting the Melbourne International Coffee Expo and World Barista Championships in
2013 is an example of the worldwide recognition given to Melbourne’s coffee status. It is from within this rich context that Promised Land Coffee has emerged: to take things further, to go to the next level. Melbourne also exports many coffee entrepreneurs who are changing the landscape of cafes and coffee in New York, Paris and London.
