Espresso New Edition

By Andrew Brown-May

Who had the first espresso coffee machine in Melbourne? In colonial days coffee was vended from stalls that dotted the city's streets. At the height of the 1880s temperance movement coffee palaces preached stern sobriety. In the 20th century coffee-lounge culture gradually supplanted the genteel tearoom tradition. In the 1950s the youthful craze for espresso, fostered by new immigrants, vitalised the city—and alarmed some members of the public. Celebrating a cultural revolution, the best-selling Espresso chronicles Melbourne's coffee history and the desires and fortunes of many of the city's coffee industry pioneers.
