Australia has evolved from a nation of tea drinkers into one of passionate, true-to-Italian-immigrant espresso consumers. Café culture is carved into Sydney’s phenomenal harbour topography and colourful neighbourhood character. From bayside to beachfront, bohemian inner-city areas, student zones and leafy residential areas, each suburb has its own distinct flavour and cafés to match. Café Life Sydney explores how espresso culture has percolated up from its Italian roots to be an essential part of Australian lifestyle.
