Coffee aficionados claim to know where they can get the best cup of joe wherever they may be, but few cities around the globe can actually lay claim to being coffee capital of the world. Long a staple of Australia tours, Melbourne is one of the best spots in the country to get a cup of coffee as well.
Located on the southeastern corner of Australia, Melbourne is home to approximately 4.1 million residents, many of whom grew up with a love for all things coffee - and it's easy to see why. The popular tourist destination houses a long list of cafes and coffee houses, each of which brings something unique to the table.
Among the most famous coffee houses in Melbourne is Proud Mary, which brews a number of specialty drinks that will put anything you can get from Starbucks to shame. Each variety is roasted to suit a different type of brewing technique such as cold drip, aeropress and french press. Additionally, thanks to its location in a converted warehouse, you're unlikely to find another establishment quite like it.
The Seven Seeds cafe also stands head and shoulders above the rest. Consistently ranked as one of the best coffee houses in the city, Seven Seeds is especially well-known for roasting its own beans on site.
Of course, coffee is not all that Melbourne has to offer. Once you've had a cup at Proud Mary, Seven Seeds or any of the other establishments the city is known for, you can close out your tour of Australia and head to one of the city's many famous landmarks, including the beautiful Flinders Street Station or the Royal Exhibition Building, which dates back more than 130 years.
