Last week we visited the Grinders Coffee warehouse, which is in our neighbourhood. We had passed by this establishment several times before, but it was either after hours, or we were in a hurry. We'd always wanted to visit this place as it is close enough to our backyard so that every morning when they freshly roast the beans, the most delicious smell of coffee permeates the air...
We finally went in and were immediately made to feel very welcome by the staff. Grinders Coffee was established in 1962 in Lygon Street, the centre of Melbourne's famous Italian quarter. Today, Grinders is the largest roaster of Fairtrade coffee in Australia. They have a good showroom full of their products which are available to buy, as well as some very interesting murals on the walls.
The staff were happy to allow us to take photos, and we'll be sure to return to stock up on their coffees. The only thing that was rather disappointing was that they did not have an in-house café to sell cups of their coffee there!
