Coffee is the ultimate energizer for almost everyone in the world. Most people cannot get on with their everyday schedule if they do not get to have their coffee first thing in the morning. Coffee is widely consumed all across the world despite the climatic figures and temperature. But when it comes to Australia, the number of people you who consume coffee on an everyday basis is almost the entire population of Australia. Jokes apart, Australians are straight-up obsessed with coffee on a whole different level. To the point of declaring the Australian coffee the best in the world. Recent studies show that approximately 821.25 billion cups of coffee get drunk each year, approximately 2.25 billion cups each day.
In fact, coffee made it in the list of widely consumed drink on number 3, marking water first and tea second. However, Australians are very peculiar and snobbish about the coffee that grows in Australia and surprisingly enough, they are actually proud of it. Due to the microclimatic conditions, the Australian coffee tends to be quite low in caffeine and has more of a chocolate flavor to it. Australia has now even become a major brewing and coffee bean roasting capital.
The Australian coffee is known to be not just good but the best in the world. You will find Aussies favoring the local coffee beans and independent cafes more than Starbucks which is known to be an international brand that is pretty successful all across the world except Australia. Some of the best local coffee brands Australians consume on an average basis are;
1. North Queensland Gold Coffee
