Coffee is (quite obviously) the most important meal of the day, but there’s nothing worse than running late for work—or missing a meeting—because you’ve had to wait so damn long for your morning dose of liquid gold.
We take our caffeine very seriously (like the rest of the human population) so we’ve teamed up with Hey You and Visa Checkout (who also hate cold coffee and long lines) to hunt down the best of best coffee in Melbourne, where you can totally beat the queue and get on with your day. But first, we need your help, and your votes.
To give you just a taste of some of Melbourne’s best cafes in the running (and the type of tough decision you’re about to make), keep reading…
Mister Zen brews some of the finest beans in South Yarra, using world-class 5 Senses coffee as their signature house blend, or venture across the river to Pillar of Salt in Richmond where you’ll find a killer straight up espresso.
Poacher and Hound is worth waking up for but the guys at The Vertue Of The Coffee in Carlton seriously know what they’re talking about (coffee, duh!) and is just what you need after a terrible night’s sleep… did we mention that we need your help picking a winner?
The one thing these coffee kings (and the other finalists) all have in common is a major lack of lines (if you haven’t downloaded Hey You App, do it now, and never wait for coffee again) so VOTE for the café you think brews the best beans and help us find the hottest coffee in town.
For doing so, you’ll get a FREE coffee and go in to the running to win $5000 to spend on Visa Checkout. Don’t be like America, VOTE NOW.
