For a city that's so obsessed with coffee, it's only fair that its major airport serves up a great brew, too. And while this hasn't been the case for a long time, Melbourne Airport is looking to fix this by bringing in Richmond coffee roaster Veneziano to the newly refurbed Terminal 1 — that 9.2 million travellers pass through each year.
Veneziano has been on the Melbourne coffee scene for 21 years, roasting and brewing up a storm in Richmond. It's also expanded across Australia in recent years, setting up cafes in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.
Those who know the brand can expect to find much of the same food and bev options in the new Melbourne Airport venue, but with a greater focus on takeaway service.
Its house blend Elevate will be used in milky brews, while specialty beans will feature in the filter and black coffees. The team has also come up with a few travel coffee options. First off, the cold brew coffee in a can is up for grabs alongside its canned espresso martinis — for those wanting to BYO booze on their next long-haul flight out of Melbourne.
Veneziano will even be selling small jars of its instant coffee, so you can brew it yourself when flying — simply ask for boiling water from the flight crew. This means no more rubbish coffee while you're in the air either.
A few meals will also be available at the Melbourne Airport store located on the airside of Terminal 1. That means travellers who are departing can stop by after going through security. And those arriving will need to hit it up before getting to baggage claim.
Veneziano is now open at Terminal 1 at Melbourne Airport. For more info, head to the venue's website.
