Sanremo Spotlight: Supernova Coffee

Before Supernova, Po-Chun Chen was mainly roasting coffee at boutique Melbourne roaster, Symmetry Coffee Roasters, and Patrick Zhang was working as a Barista in several cafes. In April 2018, they decided to embark on a new journey together. They wanted to create a place that would allow them to share their passion, love, and energy about specialty coffee. A place where they could brew coffee limitlessly.

Supernova was born from the Zoe Skylar quote: 

“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse. So collapse, crumble. This is not your destruction, this is birth”

Located behind a bookstore, Supernova welcomes you with high ceilings, bright light, and an industrial interior. Inside you will be delighted by fusion cooking with a focus on combining modern Asian cuisine with classic Aussie staples. Along with different weekly offerings, batch brews, and micro-lot specialty filters for flavour chasers. 

The last few years have been difficult, however, the team is strong and thriving with passion. Serving consistent coffee with a friendly smile. Supernova embodies Melbourne’s true coffee culture with its strong and considered offerings.
