    The world is hooked on Australian coffee culture.

    Not a bad article, if just a tad over exaggerated.

    Nice to see Italian immigrants to Australia recognised as the originators of our (world domination)

    I've noticed over the years that coffee has been steadily improving in the US, and yes, I've also encountered a couple of cafes run by Aussie's, but to say its taking over is typical ABC over hype.

    It certainly is easier to get good espresso here than most other places in the world (except Italy) of course others will disagree.

    Regardless, it's an interesting read.

    Interesting the way someone at the ABC changes the headline if the first attempt doesn't generate enough interest.

    This article started out as
    The world is hooked on Australian coffee culture. This is how it got so good


    A few hours later the same piece has the banner.

    Australian coffee is the new gold standard and not just for 'chin-stroking inner-urban Instagrammers'

    Perhaps if the writer had told us something we didn't already know, more people would have bothered.

    At best, a very mildly interesting distraction if the cricket had become too predictable.....

    Coffee quality in Australia is great when compared to a lot of other countries. If you guys have traveled to the likes of America, Hongkong, China and other various Asian Countries, you will appreciate what we have here.
    I paid $10 for a latte in Japan and sad to say it would be easily beaten in taste by any decent local coffee shop in Australia.

    They're not wrong. I noticed this a long time ago, travelling to Australia from Canada. My wife and I visited in 2003 and were astonished at how much better the coffee was than what we typically got at home. And it was pretty much across the board—didn't matter which cafe you went into, it was always top-notch. Melbourne was particularly spectacular.

    In an online world, it is fairly common for the author of a news article to go back and edit and/or update it.
    In the old print only days, you might see edited versions of articles appearing in the evening papers.
