What Is So Special About Australian Coffee?

For anyone that has been to Australia I think you already know the answer to this question

The 'Coffee Culture'

The faraway continent in the southern hemisphere is well-known for its obsession with coffee. The caffeine ritual is so ingrained in the Australian culture that every conversation starts with “Wanna grab a coffee?” No matter whether it’s a good friend, a colleague, or a date. This culture is the reason we have sourced the best Coffee Northern Ireland has to offer.

With 20,000 cafes in Australia which are known for their high standards, good coffee is not hard to find. It is believed that the entire island of Manhattan has fewer really good coffee places than Canberra alone. Canberra isn’t even the coffee capital of Australia.

Having spent almost two years in Australia and falling in love with the ‘Coffee culture’, coming back to Northern Ireland a good cup of coffee was extremely hard to find. 

Here's some History

After the second world war Italian Immigrants started to bring over their own coffee machines.

The Gaggia’s espresso machine revolutionised the coffee industry in the world since it started brewing a smoother and stronger beverage using pressure and creating a thick crema on top. As a result, the Australians weren’t drinking coffee, they were drinking espressos. From the start!

The coffee culture here is therefore rooted in quality rather than convenience and all the cafes in Australia were making espressos as early as the 1950s.

We are simply trying to replicate this and bring the coffee we experienced in Australia back to Northern Ireland.

With 1.3 million coffees sold every day in Australia, the food industry brews around 1.26 billion cups a year, amounting to total coffee sales of more than $3 billion.

It is not the quantity but the quality and the coffee culture that makes it special. It is widely believed that Australia has the best coffee in the world. And it is the only country where the big coffee giants like Starbucks had to scale back their operations, simply because Australians won’t buy crappy, or even average, coffee.

This is what we want to bring to Ireland. Stop consuming crappy coffee and have the pleasure of an Oz Standard Coffee. While we appreciate that you may enjoy the Coffee scene in Ireland, it just clearly shows you have never took that 24 hour flight (Don’t blame you).

Bringing the Oz Standard to Ireland has been a pleasure of ours and we simply want to continue this.
