Celebrity chef Gary Mehigan has launched a carefully curated specialty range of coffee with his friends from Veneziano Coffee Roasters.
Gary says he has shared a special relationship with Veneziano, so when the idea of a collaboration came up, it was a perfect combination.
“I wanted to use a brand that offered a great price, was a bit more specialty, niche, and locally roasted, and that was Veneziano [and] our relationship goes back a long way,” Gary says.
“I get asked to do lots of things, and in my position, you have to be very careful what you put your name and your face to. Do I use the product at home? Do I love it? Would I recommend it? Well, when you’re talking about Veneziano I don’t even have to think about it or do the research. It’s a product I know well, a product I believe in, and it’s a brand I really love. And that’s what makes this a great collaboration.”
He adds the specialty range has something for everyone.
The Dawn blend is a traditional darker roast with robust flavour, an intense coffee for the early riser that cuts through milk really well.
The Everyday blend is an all-rounder. It’s a smooth coffee that stands up well in milk but can also be enjoyed black.
And the Weekend, Gary’s personal favourite, is a fruit-driven blend with high acidity and sweetness. With dominant berry flavours, stone fruit and green apple acidity, Gary says this blend is a great weekend treat, or in his case, a daily one.
The Gary Mehigan Specialty Range is currently available online in Australia with plans to expand to overseas audiences. There are also plans to extend the range via premium grocers and coffee shops in Australia.
