What Cibo Espresso are saying


Connect with Cibo Espresso


The CIBO Espresso concept was created from a passion and a yearning to bring a little slice of Italy to our shores.

Our founders identified that authentic Italian espresso bar culture was almost non-existent in Australia and opened the first CIBO Espresso in Adelaide’s Rundle Street in 2000. Their mission was to service authentic Italian coffee with traditional offerings, all served in an ambient, charming atmosphere.

Known for being Australia’s first premium Italian coffee chain, CIBO Espresso continues to echo the style and passion of Italian life. It was this passion that attracted Retail Zoo Pty Ltd (the holding company of Australian brands, Boost Juice and Salsas) to acquire CIBO Espresso in 2012.

Retail Zoo and CIBO Espresso have now opened 32 stores across South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria with large expansion plans underway. In 2016, CIBO Espresso recruited one of the world’s best specialist chefs to implement its most ambitious menu change since its inception. With a refined focus on handmade, artisan products and locally sourced ingredients, the new menu now features over 60 new dishes.

CIBO Espresso aims to deliver a premium, boutique experience consistently in all its stores, making it the nationally-recognised and loved brand that it is. The brand enjoys the same proven growth platform, systems and structures that has seen Boost Juice open over 420 stores in 13 countries.
