Lynette de la Vega
Director of Abuelo
Pioneer of Oz Cafe Culture and Design
Lynette is widely credited as a key player and pioneer of the original, disruptive Antipodean coffee movement. Named one of the “Coffee Kings” of Sydney, at her height, Lynette had five restaurants, 1,750 strong staff and celebrity clientele, including Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchence, who would queue round the block for a cup of her coffee. She even created the “babyccino”, the warm frothed milk drink now favoured by hipster toddlers worldwide. Vogue Magazine Australia wrote about the drink and the story – and serve – went global.
