Melbournians are obsessed with coffee. And as luck would have it, we are completely spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the perfect latte, espresso…. or caffeinated beverage of you choice. To make it easy, The Coffee Guide Melbourne 2011 (PB $19.95) is the perfect tool. Arranged by area (City Centre, Inner Melbourne and Outer Melbourne), each cafe is given a ‘Bean Rating’, which includes scores for both the quality of the coffee and the overall venue. Top marks, 5 Beans, were awarded to 65 Degrees, Seven Seeds, Proud Mary, Three Bags Full and St Ali Coffee Roasters among others, with 65 Degrees taking out the overall Golden Shot Award.
With the 3rd edition just out, this book is the perfect coffee-lover’s companion.
