Back in May, we interviewed James Crawford, co-founder of Beanhunter an app for discovering great coffee. He told us that he thought Melbourne was extremely lucky as there are so many great coffee places but if he had to pick a favourite cafe, it would be Proud Mary in Collingwood.
We’ve been lucky enough to get numerous recommendations for great Melbourne coffee shops from the idea makers we’ve interviewed, so when James recently got in touch to let me know about the release of Beanhunter 2.0, we thought, why not celebrate with a list of great Melbourne coffee shops frequented by Australians making ideas happen!Torsten founder of coseats.com hangs out at Kent St on Smith St when he’s in Melbourne.
