The traditional myth of the discoverer of the brew, Omar, inspires the founders of one of the top Melbourne coffee shops, Omar and the Marvellous Coffee Bird. Outcast and on the cusp of death, Omar received a bean-laden branch from a bird and upon boiling the beans and drinking the result was revitalised. Coffee is now the second most traded commodity in the world, inspiring drinkers and brewers around the world, none more so than founding owners Dean Atkins and Andy Gelman. They believe there should never be compromise on quality and if it’s not the best it can be, they simply won’t serve it. They want to get people excited about coffee and the many nuanced flavours that different beans and roasts elucidate.
