      If all it does, is point people in the direction of the specialty coffee industry then I say its a good thing. Impossible to mention everyone.

          theres 20 odd cafes mentioned, I dont disagree with any of them. Perth & Brisbane could have had more coverage, but hey I think they did a pretty good job. Although they listed my local coffee pub, which is one of those "oh my god they told everyone" moments but Im very happy for HD as she runs a great business and completely deserves to be spoken of in the top of ANY list or discussion about excellence in Australian specialty coffee.

          Im intrigued as to who you think should be dropped from the Melbourne list beanflying, but appreciate getting into it might cause more trouble than its worth.

            Since when did Australia only consist of Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide?? : Im even amazed that they did think to include Tasmania!

            Im sure that there are plenty out side of these areas doing great specialty coffee...

            This reads like a paid advertisment to me... :-?

                yep paid advert for sure. good one guys, way to support those doing great things in coffee. Surely just creating awareness about specialty coffee helps ANYONE who sells it?

                I dont disagree that there is good purveyors of specialty coffee outside of the capital cities, but a paid advert? thats just sour grapes.

                I guess some people will never be happy. :

                  Agree with you wholeheartedly Aaron. There will always be some/lots of good ones left out for reasons that have nothing to do with the quality of coffee served.

                  It was great to see Hazel included amongst the big boys. She rocks!

                      The Australian (called that because they thought it would sell more papers than calling it "The Sydney") have put together a list of some of the best coffee houses in the country. Because lots of these venues were not within 15 minutes from the Sydney CBD they dont have pictures but if you read the text you will see many other places listed (including The Coffee Barun in SA for example)

                      Curiously, seems every single Slayer in the country is there... Jorno machine snobbery maybe?

                      I think its a good list and pretty sure all of the places mentioned are in the CS recomended cafes in Good Coffee Where?
