We endeavoured to find out the true coffee capital of Australia, and we did so by sourcing the most important opinions of all:regular customers.

Using TripAdvisor reviews, we figured out the average ratings for coffee stores in each state and territory’s capital city. Are you expecting Melbourne to come out on top?

Not so. Hobart took out the number one spot, with an average rating of 4.29 / 5. More than half of reviewers rated their cafe five stars! It also sported the most coffee shops per capita, which is good news for anyone with a particularly urgent need for a caffeine fix.

Close behind for a podium finish were Adelaide and Brisbane, awarded second and third place respectively. Both cities average ratings very close to Hobart, with Adelaide very nearly taking the crown, were it not for slightly fewer five star ratings from its customers.

Rounding out the top five were Melbourne (4th) and Sydney (5th). To see how the other cities performed, check out the infographic below.
