Australians have long been known for their love of beer, but the country is also infatuated with espresso coffee. As part of the newest wave of New York’s always changing cafe culture, several spots owned or run by Australians have begun opening up across the city and introducing coffee names such as the “flat white” and the “long black.” Coffee purveyors such as Bluestone Lane, Toby’s Estate, Bluebird Coffee, and Little Collins are all attempting to recreate the Melbourne and Sydney coffee culture right here in the Big Apple. BreakThruTV’s Lauren Hawker spoke with Bluestone Lane’s Aaron Cook and Nicholas Stone, as well as Bluebird’s Tyson Stagg about the trend.
