Campos Coffee opens Melbourne flagship café
Australian specialty coffee roaster Campos Coffee has opened a new Campos flagship café in South Yarra, Melbourne. Positioned at the bustling Toorak Road end of Chapel Street, the launch coincides with Campos Coffee reaching its milestone 21st year in 2023.
The flagship café is located on 572 Chapel Street in South Yarra, and will be open from Monday to Friday 7am to 3:00pm and weekends 8am to 4pm.
Campos is excited to bring the café concept to Melbourne, with planned collaborations with local makers and artists set to create a cosy hub for Melbournians to convene. The café’s walls will display a rotating selection of local artists’ works, changing every three to six months, beginning with clay tablet and wall sculptures by Victorian ceramicist Cassie Hansen. Campos has also partnered with local ceramic studio, Pot Dispensary to create a bespoke range of cups for the new store.
“Cafés are often thought of as being the heart and soul of a local community, a place for people to connect with each other over a great cup of coffee. Our vision for the Chapel Street flagship is to not only serve an exceptional coffee experience in a beautiful setting, but also to connect with and support the community,” says Rafael Lopes, Campos Coffee’s Chapel Street Flagship Manager.
“Melbourne is often thought of as the spiritual home of coffee in Australia and we want to bring a Flagship café to help us build an authentic, credible reputation and be a great Melbourne café for coffee lovers to visit.”
The Campos Chapel Street flagship café will serve the coffee roaster’s signature Superior Blend, alongside a full range of available Campos coffees, including its new ‘Lab Series’, a curated line up of limited release single origins, and Geisha coffees. A retail offering will also offer a select range of brewing equipment and branded items, as well as providing a grinding service to those buying beans to use at home.
“The Campos Superior Blend is our original café blend and what we’re famous for. While we look forward to serving this we’re also excited to introduce customers to the full breadth of delicious coffees we have on offer.” Rafael says.
Campos have partnered with Glen Iris based bakery and patisserie AM Bakehouse to offer a rotating menu of freshly baked sweet and savoury sandwiches and pastry delights. Delicious vegan and gluten-free options from Mahadeva’s Kitchen will also be on the menu.
Partnering with interior design agency, Guru Projects, the café is inspired by the nostalgia and warm colour tones of traditional European espresso bars – rich in detail, yet pared back and refined, exuding a contemporary elegance in its simplicity.
