Jane Ormond Author

Destination Coffee, a new book from Melbourne food and travel writer Jane Ormond, takes a caffeinated journey around the world, stopping off at some of the most renowned coffee cities and percolating with insider info and snappy recipes for replicating those cities’ signature coffee drinks.

The book has got deep connections to the Mornington Peninsula. Jane grew up in Frankston and spends a lot of time on the Peninsula where her parents live, enjoying coffee wherever she can. “Growing up in Frankston, I’d go to places like the Central Park Café and the Black Cat Lounge, order a cappuccino and think I was the height of sophistication,” she says. “This was back when no one was really talking about specific coffee beans or coffee-growing regions. No one was really even game enough to order an espresso. But things have really changed now.”

And while most people might associate suburbs such as Carlton and Fitzroy with thriving coffee cultures, Jane is a big advocate for the Peninsula scene. “There’s so much craft and care going into coffee now, and it’s incredible to find really excellent cafes in the back streets of Karingal or amazing coffee roasters in the industrial back streets of Mornington. It’s really no surprise that there are such high-quality coffee roasters in the area, given the gourmet bounty of the Peninsula.”

Destination Coffee includes some great advice on how to make good coffee at home – and the key is very simple: use the best beans and good filtered water for your brew. And don’t buy beans in large quantities because they can go stale.

“It’s better to buy smaller amounts more often for peak flavour. With boutique roasters around the Peninsula and Greater Frankston region, head into your local and have a chat about how you like your coffee and what kind of flavour profile you like and discover your signature blend.”

Destination Coffee is published by Hardie Grant and is available at good bookstores.
