Building our foundations on operating the famous Gilano Coffee bar at the Metro Station in Melbourne’s bayside area of Sandringham, we have been proudly serving the local community since 2007.

Coffee Excellence is integral to everything we do – delivering excellence through tradition every time. Our customers can relate to this, and not just by providing a testimonial. Anyone can come and see us at our Sandringham espresso bar and can test our service as well as our coffee.

Built on years of experience – our professional, community-focussed service combined with coffee excellence is at the heart of what we do every day! The connections made between us and our customers, and between our customers themselves, are what it’s all about.

Gilano Coffee was established in 2004 by Alan and Lynne Giliberto and is run as a family business along with other members of the family and extended staff. Lynne and her daughters are of Italian heritage, so coffee runs in our blood. Our ‘extended family’ and community approach have made Gilano what it is today.

Alan studied the art of coffee making through the Lavazza Coffee School in Melbourne. He and Lynne later travelled to Italy to perfect their art, ensuring that they capture the essence of Italian espresso coffee.

Keeping up with Italian tradition – but bringing this home at the same time – we use Giancarlo® premium coffee produced by craftsmen and roasted daily in Melbourne. In 2019 we introduced our Small Batch Filtro Coffee to offer selected seasonal single origin beans.

We’re all about the coffee

The taste, the aroma and ensuring you really enjoy what you’re drinking.

We don’t make it complicated.

Keeping you in the loop
