Coffee bars have been the darling of the Australian coffee industry for decades.
The country boasts over 500 coffee shops, and in 2013 alone, the number of coffee bars grew from a mere 5 in 2004 to more than 5,000 today.
But there’s been some change in the way that coffee bars have become popular.
One of the first big changes to the coffee industry came in the mid-1970s, when the National Health Service began allowing people to buy and sell coffee through the national register of health, with a fee for the privilege.
“This was a massive step forward in the coffee market and made the coffee bar the most widely consumed form of social consumption in Australia,” says John Waugh, the chief executive of Australia’s National Coffee Association.
It was also the beginning of the shift to cheaper, more affordable, healthier options.
Around the same time, coffee was also being sold at farmers markets, which allowed consumers to buy a range of fresh produce from local farms, and also used as a way to supplement their income.
At the same moment, a new breed of coffee bar started to emerge.
This was the first time people were able to purchase coffee directly from a barista, and it quickly became popular.
But it wasn’t until the mid 2000s that coffee shops started to become mainstream in Australia, with some coffee bars even selling groceries and alcohol.
By 2006, coffee bars were the most popular form of dining in Australia.
According to the Beverage Marketing Association, over the past five years, there have been more than 12,000 coffee bars, and more than 8,000 cafes.
While some bars have opened since, many others have been closed, or been closed for a variety of reasons.
Some coffee bars are owned by small business owners who were forced to close due to the downturn in the economy.
Others are run by a few wealthy families, who have turned to cafes as a means to diversify their income streams.
For many of these people, coffee is an escape from the real world, and has been a way of keeping their money coming in.
These are the 10 most popular coffee bars for Australians, according to Beverage Market Research.
Coffee bar 1: The Golden Nugget Bar The Golden Nuggie, which opened in 2005, is considered Australia’s oldest and largest coffee bar.
In the early 1990s, the bar was opened to the public, but its popularity soon grew, and now it is one of the most-visited coffee bars on the island of Tasmania.
Its popularity has continued to grow over the years, with the bar now serving up to 400 customers each night, according the Barista’s Association.
It also has a strong coffee culture, with guests from all over Australia and the world visiting its bar.
