COFFEE – World’s Best Pick Me Up

Hi Everyone =)

Just like most people around the world the first beverage they drink each day is COFFEE – coffee of different varieties, flavours and types. I myself have completed a barista course so really do enjoy coffee quite a bit. Here is a list of my top rating places that serve coffee in and around Melbourne. The main focus for me is the flavours – I enjoy the nutty and creamy flavours, not so much the strong coffee’s. I also do love coffee art but haven’t factored this in when selecting my top 10.

I also do love Chai Lattes and Hot Chocolates so will feature some of my favourite places on here as well.

As I come across new places – the list will change – so come back regularly to see where the tastiest coffee can be found!

If there are any places that you guys think are especially great that I should check out – please feel free to email me (, post a comment here, leave a comment on Facebook ( or Tweet me @simtiaz to let me know! =)
