New York-based Australian coffee shop chain Bluestone Lane Cafe is popping up in Austin for South by Southwest this week. The coffee pop-up is happening at Lucille at 77 Rainey Street in downtown Austin starting yesterday through Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
On deck for Bluestone are espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, and flat whites (of course), all made by Australian barista and Bluestone’s senior director of strategic projects Jai Lott. Blue Stone will also make “wellness lattes” and a smoothie after some workout from former rugby player and now Swisse Wellness brand ambassador Luke Milton on Tuesday, March 12
Bluestone’s temporary Austin cafe is party of the Australia House pop-up from the G’Day USA.
The pop-up is also bringing Australian chef Jock Zonfrillo who cooked at its opening night barbecue reception on Sunday. Bluestone founder Nick Stone will also talk about the cafe and “longing for community” on Tuesday, March 12 at 12:30 p.m.
Last year, the Australia House brought along actor Hugh Jackman’s coffee shop Laughing Man Cafe.
