Is NYC the Next Melbourne?
Posted on April 10, 2010 by Mike
The Milk Bar’s Alexander Hall thinks so. “The New York coffee scene is similar to Melbourne in 1985.” Ouch! But Francesco Agoftino from the Glass Shop thinks flat whites are “uncool”. And apparently the issue is so sensitive, a former Melburnian “who was also the first to roast premium-grade beans in New York” won’t even talk about it (or identify himself).
These guys may not win over too many NYC baristas with this article, but there are a few that are looking for work.
