Melbourne Coffee Culture: 10 Cafés I Want to Visit

You probably know by now that one of the things that I love doing is making lists. But what you may not know is that I have a great, big appetite for good food too. (So be forewarned, there will be food posts in the future.) And in Melbourne, it isn’t hard to find.

But it being winter, I can’t help but think of a warm cup of coffee. Coffee culture is alive and vibrant here. Everywhere you turn, there’s a café or a hole in the wall just churning one perfect cup after another. For me, that’s a good excuse to just sit down and enjoy a good brew.

So, what’s brewing?

I’m not going to pretend that I know a lot about coffee. What I do know, however, is that these cafes have caught my interest for quite a while now and I am more than keen to try each and every one of their special roasts and blends. The list can extend to 20, even 50, but for now, let’s make it short and sweet.
