Coffee shops can offer a good alternative to bars, but they may not be the best place to go for a cup of joe.
Here are the best coffee bars in Australia, according to the coffee shop industry trade association.
For example, Cafe Coffee has a menu of about 30 coffees, and has been operating for about three years, but only opened in May.
Cafe Coffee owner Nick Burt told ABC Radio Melbourne it was a challenge for the new owners to bring in the new employees, with some struggling to learn English.
“They are struggling with language skills, they are struggling to communicate,” he said.
I would say it is about 20 to 30 per cent of the staff who are not bilingual, but I think the majority of them have a lot of experience in coffee.
“Nick Burt, Cafe coffee owner, said he struggled to recruit staff from overseas, as he did not have the skills to hire a full-time staff.
He said it was difficult for the owner to maintain the shop as it had a “huge debt” of about $300,000, which he said was due to a lack of funds.
The cafe was closed last week after a fire in December, and was due for a new lease of life, but it has been left with a lease that expires in December 2021.
Despite its location, Cafe’s website states the cafe does not operate in any of Australia’s coffee markets, and is only available in Australia.
