Too much coffee
On the road again and this week Poh is in Melbourne to find out why this city takes its coffee so seriously. So many factors have influenced the growth of Australia’s coffee culture and Poh finds its all on show here in Melbourne’s back streets. Poh is interested in seeing what the flavour of coffee has to offer her as a cook and meets barista Claude Sawaya who runs through the do’s and don’ts of a good coffee. She goes to a coffee smack-down where young baristas vie for the right to call themselves champions, meeting the Aussie who was the runner up in last year’s world barista competition and she visits a restaurant where food matching is all about the coffee and not the wine. To accompany all this coffee there’s a recipe for Baklava, Poh makes an Affogato and then, to top it all off, creates her lime and hazelnut coffee cupcake, the ultimate cake to have with your coffee.
