The Gilano Experience is more than coffee.
For us it’s about connecting people and coffee.
For you, it’s about feeling special from booking to service and beyond.
Introducing our new porta via coffee carts
Inspired by international travel, our new porta via coffee carts make it super-fast and easy to set up almost anywhere. Brightly coloured and energy-efficient coffee carts for hire around Melbourne, they’re designed using the latest modern aviation technology for portability and function.
You name it, we’ll be there
At Gilano Coffee, we have a unique offering. By using the same space-saving, portable technology that airlines use, we can set up our coffee carts in even the smallest of areas to accommodate your needs.
It can be a boardroom or an aircraft hangar. A train station or a convention centre. You name it, we’ll be there.
The latest Brugnetti Gamma espresso machines
We don’t compromise on the coffee, we proudly serve Giancarlo® coffee (named after Giancarlo Giusti, founder of Grinders Coffee House). The blend and roast profile bring together the harmony of flavour and the intensity of experience – and incorporating the latest Brugnetti Gamma espresso machines to deliver the perfect espresso and milk-based coffee for high-volume traffic.
No fuss end-to-end solutions
With service levels you’ve come to expect from Gilano Coffee, we provide a complete solution by delivering the right equipment, people, speed of set-up and hot & cold menu choices to meet our clients’ needs. No headaches, no fuss!
Over half of our corporate work involves setting up in workplaces and running incentive or coffee-reward days for staff. The balance of our corporate work is brand activation and product launches, tradeshows, as well as conferences.
We can set up anywhere, from Eureka Tower to Kakadu or even on a luxury yacht!
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.
