Following The Burger Book Victoria, the brief was to evolve the existing creative direction through a coffee styled theme. The kraft stock cover, hand drawn illustrations and typography and photography come together to reflect the craftsmanship of the coffee roasters, the skill of baristas and Melbourne’s cafe scene.
It is often a challenge to forgo the norm of “Just the usual, thanks,” and explore the unchartered territory of coffee’s vast offerings. An informative insight into the realm of coffee, The Specialty Coffee Book Victoria is a detailed guide for the coffee curious, giving its readers a behind-the-machine look into what goes into your daily caffeine fix and the industry in pursuit of that perfect cup. Featuring over 100 cafes and micro roasters, these pages will take you on an informative expedition to explore Melbourne's infatuation with the humble coffee bean.
