Historically, in Australia, the cup of tea was the beverage of choice for many years and we inherited this love for tea from our British cousins across the water. After a hard day’s work, a nice mug of tea would hit the spot and allow us to relax and watch TV. However, another drink has taken over and is now more popular all across Australia and the world. I am, of course, talking about coffee and many people now cannot start their working day without a cup of this amazing elixir. We are unable to function properly without it, and if we don’t get a coffee, then we get really annoyed. It tastes fantastic and it gives us that little boost that we need in the morning and throughout the day.
Finding a good cup of coffee is more difficult than you think, and although there are many large coffee chains all across Australia, many of them do not deliver a proper cup of coffee. For those that take the time to learn about the coffee bean and the roasting process, they are generally very successful and coffee shops are full to capacity most days. There are people out there that take their coffee very seriously indeed, and they spend a great deal of time using different roasting methods and blending different types of coffee together, to try to find us the perfect cup. There is one particular business that is growing in numbers every year and the number of people who are enjoying their coffee is also growing.
The Health Benefits.
This particular business is called Bun Coffee and they create their award-winning coffee by using Bun Coffee fair trade coffee beans to create the perfect cup of coffee. For those of you who are not aware of the many benefits of drinking coffee, the following shortlist should help you to educate yourself.
