What’s it all about?

Melbournians believe know we live in the coffee capital of the world.  We take it seriously and might even follow our favourite barista when they move cafes or have our own preferred roasting houses and coffee bean profiles from certain regions.  BUT, how are we all faring making our own coffee at home?
