Art of Espresso is a local family-owned speciality coffee-roasting business. When Adrian (from an Italian family in Sydney) met Gabrielle (who lived in Young) their shared love of the ‘bush’ meant they wanted to call it home, providing that good coffee was available.
Adrian and Gabrielle started the business in 1999 with a mobile coffee cart that still pops up at local festivals and events. In 2010 they opened their flagship espresso bar in Young which houses their coffee-roasting facility, the Canberra Region’s first certified Barista Training School, and produces their famous house blend – The Kombi blend.
Art of Espresso was born from a desire to provide Canberra Region customers with quality fresh roasted coffee, celebrating coffee and good company, and changing he perception of coffee in the bush. Adrian’s coffee is available at many locations around the Canberra Region. Since 2006 Art of Espresso has won over 30 national and international awards, including the gold medal and overall coffee champion in its class at the prestigious Sydney Royal Show Fine Foods Awards in March 2016.
The commitment and delight with which Adrian, Gabriele and their team live out their ethos of “relationships…not contracts” gives Art of Espresso its truly vibrant soul, attracting locals and travellers to enjoy the smooth elixir. “To have Young as the home of Art of Espresso makes me so proud. I cannot thank the people of Young enough!”
