World’s Best Baristas Rate Melbourne’s Coffee

How does Melbourne’s coffee fare against the rest of the world? Matt Holden asks some of the best baristas in the business.

”When you talk about cities for drinking coffee,” says Stephen Leighton of Has Bean coffee in Stafford, England, ”people talk about Portland, people talk about London, people talk about Melbourne. They’re the three places that get mentioned regularly as great coffee cities.”

Leighton is in Australia as MC of the 2013 World Barista Championships, held at the weekend. The flamboyant Englishman turned up at the final in a bright red suit and bowler hat, and kept the crowd entertained with an announcing style like a Spanish football commentator: ”Maaaaatt Perrrrrrrrgerrrrrrrrrrr …”

Does he think Melbourne had a head start in coffee with the influx of Italians in the 1950s?
