A simple cup of coffee

After visiting Brisbane and area last year, it was all we could do to find a decent cuppa joe.

What gives?

We miraculously found a little café in Maroochy which had THE best coffee anywhere we went.

Just wondering if we will forever be ordering flat white, or lattés when all a girl needs is a medium double-double with milk LOL

Starbucks in Brisbane centre hooked me up but it still wasn't quite right... Am I missing something?!

I'm in WA and not a fan of most cafe coffee here. Honestly, the best coffee I've had yet in Oz comes from a coffee truck that drives around town and shows up at my kid's sports activities, haha. I'd give you the name but they're only in Perth anyway.

I work for a coffee roaster in Canada, and I think we make some pretty damn good specialty/craft coffee. Having said that, even our longest serving employee (30+ years) says the Australians are miles ahead of where we are in terms of coffee.

I am Canadian, but never drank coffee while I lived there (no, not even from Timmie's). Now my favourite coffee is the flat white my Australian husband makes me at home. So I am no help, but wish you luck!

Let me know - we will be hopefully making a detour there before settling on the opposite coast 🙂
