Melbournians reckon they live in the coffee capital of the world. Mind you, it’s so bloody cold over there that any hot beverage instantly tastes delicious. Comparethemarket recently compared the online reviews of cafes around Australia to find out which state has the most satisfied customers. Surprise, surprise, Melbourne didn’t even crack the top three.
Comparethemarket based its findings on TripAdvisor reviews for coffee stores in each state and territory’s capital city. Interestingly, Hobart took out the number one spot, with an average rating of 4.29 out of five. More than half of Tassie reviewers rated their cafe five stars. Next up were Adelaide and Brisbane, followed by Melbourne at fourth place. Either Melbourne’s coffee isn’t all it’s cracked up to be or its residents are more discerning connoisseurs.
