Australia might not be world renowned for its food, but it turns out that its coffee has won a place in the hearts of many around the globe. Melbourne has officially beaten Rome, Vienna and Sydney, taking first prize for best coffee in the world.

“The tourists love Melbourne because our coffee and cafe culture is a part of our lives and is a very unique thing to Melbourne. There are many great specialty roasters in Melbourne that consistently strive for excellence and keep pushing us all to be the best we can be and there’s a great sense of community here that can’t be found in many other places around the world.”

– Jos Turner, Barista at Brother Baba Budan
