What Makes Australian Coffee So Good....

....compared to North American coffee?

Own Brand Racism.

OP, I think Vietnamese/Greek/Italian are a huge proportion of Australia and those groups all know good coffee. I think there are also like 200,000 Turkish people there? So yes, lots of good coffee.

its the fresh spring water we use to brew it, and the Meth we lovingly mix in amongst our organic fair trade beans for you the customer.

by Asking for a Friend reply 306/27/2020

The electricity used to heat the water is produced by burning coal. It really makes a flavor difference.

by Asking for a Friend reply 406/27/2020

New Orleans has chicory as a flavor enhancer for coffee; we have dried wombat shite.

by Asking for a Friend reply 506/27/2020

Aussie baristas are hotter than their counterparts elsewhere. And their water is better.

No one is flatter or whiter than Australians

It has subtle notes of barbecued shrimp.

It's not as good Wilkins

Starbucks has bombed in Australia, and badly. I think that they had a 2.5% share of the market. Aussie coffee houses rule. Starbucks has a nasty aftertaste.

I once saw in here a thread about “Indicators that someone is pretentious” and one of the responses was buying coffee from Starbucks.

Only in the USA would Starbucks be considered anything other than swill.

It comes from a land ground under.

We take it really seriously, to the point of an Australian winning barista of the year about 4 years ago. I looked for a June 2020 best coffee in Melbourne CBD article to give a sense of how much people care. Beans are the key thing, they completely define the experience, but even hyped places can have too milky drinks or have bland beans.

In short, I’ll drink Starbucks espresso when I’m overseas if there’s no other option as I’m realistic about caffeine headaches but it’s not good coffee. It tastes burnt.

Starbucks is disgusting. They don't make good coffee at all. McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts make much better coffee if we are talking about giant chains. And what's worse are all those nasty sugar bombs they call "coffee" that are basically just deserts.

7-Eleven's isn't too bad either.

We already had Gloria Jeans.

Ok I would never think of Australian coffee as good. Yes Melbourne has pretty little lanes, but it just does *not* have a good coffee cultcha.

by Asking for a Friend reply 2306/28/2020

R23, Melbourne is no longer the coffee capital.

Is it true Starbucks went out of business in Australia because it couldn’t compete ?

by Asking for a Friend reply 2506/28/2020

Starfucks over estimated their growth potential in the 2000s, aggressively opening dozens of stores half of which closed 5 years later. They are still around today in smaller numbers, still expanding, but more slowly. They have recently branched into some supermarket pre-made coffees lines, roasted beans and mugs, perhaps to better gauge who their buyers are.

They really have no chance of gaining a huge share of the market here, people are fiercely loyal to their local barristers and enjoy their European notions that coffee shops should be romantic and individualised.

by Asking for a Friend reply 2606/28/2020

Australia still has Woolworth's, Kmart and Hungry Jacks.

by Asking for a Friend reply 2706/28/2020

Koalas are fed coffee beans and they poop them out and their digestive juices changes the coffee flavor much in the same way civet poop coffee is prized for its nasty flavor.

Of course, the best Australian poop coffee comes from Helen Reddy's butt. You would think it would be Nicole Kidman's butt but there was some kind of interaction with the botox and instead of coffee we got the movie "Australia."

Sometimes you just shouldn't mess with nature, know what I mean?

It's brewed in drip bears.

by Asking for a Friend reply 3006/28/2020

It's made using coffee bean grains only pooped out by AUSTRALIAN civet cats.

by Asking for a Friend reply 3106/28/2020

People who like good coffee don't drink Starbucks, unless they prefer the flavored sweetened crap.

by Asking for a Friend reply 3206/28/2020

Is there a good brand of Aussie coffee you can get in the US? I'm curious now.

by Asking for a Friend reply 3306/28/2020

Its lovingly ground under the feet of Aboriginal virgins

by Asking for a Friend reply 3406/28/2020

Australian coffee comes largely from Vietnamese coffee which are universally considered the worst beans grown anywhere, but they are cheap.

So if you think Australian coffee is good, then you're either just used to it, or you have a weird sense of what is good.

They triple the price and serve it with an accent, and cut off half the words they utter to you in this process.

by Asking for a Friend reply 3706/30/2020

I thought that it was from Africa. Like coffee consumed in Europe. North America gets its coffee from South America, right? Which is why it’s not so strong?

by Asking for a Friend reply 3807/01/2020

Australia has been growing its own coffee for a couple of years in North Queensland and a couple of other locations, going from just a few acres to around 600 tonnes per year. The farmers have embraced crops like coco and truffles and grapes that are not "supposed" to grown down under and are getting excellent results too.
