Having launched cafes in Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and, most recently, Sydney's Surry Hills, Veneziano Coffee Roasters now has a treat for its local fans, opening its original Richmond headquarters to the public from next week.

A bright, new 80-seat dining space now sits alongside the River Street roastery and barista training studio, allowing guests to sip their morning macchiato while watching — and smelling — those beautiful beans roasting. There's a cupping lab, too, for those wanting to get up close and personal with their brew, and an interactive micro-roastery where you'll be able to see the magic unfold.

Opening Monday, July 30, the brew bar is set to showcase the label's signature Bond St blend, with a selection of microlots (sourced from one small area of a plot) also on rotation. To match, the kitchen is plating up a modern cafe menu for both breakfast and lunch, designed around local, seasonal ingredients.

True coffee aficionados can also get excited for a beefed-up range of barista courses offered in the onsite training studio. "It presents the perfect opportunity to showcase the brand as an end-to-end specialty experience for coffee lovers and those keen to learn more," said Veneziano Managing Director Craig Dickson.

Find Veneziano's new Melbourne cafe at 16 River Street, Richmond, from Monday, July 30. It will be open daily from 7am–4pm.
