Home of the flat white, chia seed pudding, and avocado toast, Melbourne is the unsuspecting epicenter of the coffee world, boasting one of the highest concentrations of coffee shops per capita on earth. But, as its most towering figures and influences spread overseas, the Australian cultural capital is left to recalibrate its identity.

In this edition of Drift, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in Melbourne
