There’s no doubt about it, the Gold Coast knows how to do coffee. Far more than just a steaming cup of stimulating brew, for many people coffee is a daily ritual, a social experience and even a sense of belonging to a particular community. Just like footballers have their club, coffee drinkers follow their bean and barista. Come across a loyal follower, and they’ll travel for kilometres to get their special cup made just the way they like it. Just as each state has its own code of football, the Gold Coast has developed its own style distinctly different to both Sydney and Melbourne. In our own casual way, the GC is developing a food and coffee culture all its own....and we chat to some of the people that are making this happen!
