not even a coffee drinker but batfink has nailed it.
I think Melbourne has a reputation for being more coffee snobs too, with the saying if your serving bad coffee in the morning don't expect to be in business in the afternoon.
Not much on offer in the UK would make it over here in a major city, most wouldn't make it against Gloria Jeans which is as batfink says where you don't go.
the real giveaway is most people/cafe's in the UK can't even make a proper tea, charging somebody and putting a tea bag in a mug (or worse a leaky pot) is a sign of contempt.
Today I paid £1.30 for a mug of filter coffee. How much would that cost in Starbucks/Costa etc?
I didn't think people still drank filter coffee....
