Known for its coffee, Melbourne is set to celebrate what it loves best when International Coffee Day falls this Monday, 1st October. The lifeline drop can be sampled across the city, with specialty blends and sweet treats ready to honour the celebrated beverage from morning to night.
We’ve found some great destinations that will be celebrating the day in style! Check out the following.
Dulce de leche tiramisu, $16
La Cumparsita, $19
Celebrate International Coffee Day the Argentinian Way at Palermo, where Melburnians can indulge in their favourite bean in more ways than one. A playful Argentinian twist on a traditional Italian dessert, Palermo’s dulce de leche tiramisu will satisfy all coffee and sweet tooth cravings. Pair this delicious dish with an espresso or milky blend, or go all out with La Cumparsita – the South American espresso martini – a mix of spiced rum, dulce de leche, espresso and Pedro Ximenez, garnished with chocolate.
Caffè del Nonno, $14
Available for the first week of October only, Tipico will be offering their newest Italian coffee creation, Caffè del Nonno, literally meaning ‘grandfathers coffee’. Made with fresh coffee cream and topped with hazelnut crumble, Caffè del Nonno is a mix between a tiramisu and an espresso martini. Coffee enthusiasts are encouraged to visit Tipico this International Coffee Day and the week ahead to indulge in its intense, aromatic flavour.
