Put together the enterprising boys behind Garage 51 and award-winning head barista Matt Perger from Melbourne's St Ali and you've got your coffee-filled weekend sorted. A collaboration with Tourism Victoria, the coffee collision aims to bring Melbourne's coffee culture to town with a limited time coffee takeover (you'll see Perger in action alongside the Garage 51 team as they whip up flat whites, long blacks and espressos) and a series of coffee workshops by Perger himself.
Highly revered within Melbourne coffee circles, the St Ali name owes its distinction to its specialty brews. As St Ali's Head of Coffee, Perger's decorated coffee resume includes being crowned champion of the World Brewer's Cup 2012 on top of being ranked the world's top three baristas. Those serious about coffee will not want to miss a chance to speak to the revered barista during the private coffee pairing sessions and workshops which will expand your knowledge on third wave coffee, roasting and coffee culture worldwide.
