These are the 100 best coffees in Australia

Too hot, too weak, terrible milk … there are so many ways a barista can get it wrong.

To help in the quest for an on-point caffeine kick, here is the list that Yelp just released of the top 100 coffee places in Australia.

For the uninitiated, Yelp is an app that publishes crowdsourced reviews about local businesses.

To determine the placings the data team analysed which coffee places were the most popular and well reviewed. They compared businesses from across the country using a ranking that considered total ratings and number of reviews, while also accounting for quality, popularity, and statistical fluctuations.

Melbourne holds its reputation as the Australian city with the highest proportion of coffee lovers. City laneway favourite Patricia takes the top spot and 27 Victorian businesses made the list overall (the best of any state).

It’s also interesting to note that Western Australia is punching well above its weight with 25 businesses featured in the Top 100.

It needs to be considered that Yelp may be more popular in certain cities and thus the list is a bit skewed. For example this list indicates that Yelp is quite popular in Adelaide (three SA venues are featured in the top 10 whereas NSW only has one).

But hey, maybe they just have super excellent coffee in South Australia.

Here’s the complete list.
