Coffee Culture in Australia

The idea of coffee culture needs no introduction, and Aussies, along with the Italians and essentially every human who has to wake up early in the morning, will argue that’s it’s an essential part of their daily routine. Coffee culture in Australia is up there with the strongest in the world.

Be is an espresso – single or double – cappuccino, soy latte or whatever, die-hard coffee fans know what they want. What’s interesting, however, is that despite the fact that Starbucks is a leading coffee brand the world-over, it took quite a while to catch on in Australia.

It seems the Aussie’s prefer less commercial, more homegrown-style cafes.
