|"Latte sippers"? I like how thats somehow a term of derision in some quarters... does that mean you've never had a coffee made with milk before?|
I sip latte and I'm proud.:)

|It should also be noted that a love of good coffee transcends all socio-economic, cultural and political boundaries in Australia. You'll find an equal number of passable cafes in Frankston and Toorak these days.|

|I've often wondered why and how such a small country as England has so many accents compared with the size of our country. |
In my experience the only accents I've noticed are the Okka (very strong speak, such as our dear late Steve Irwin), "normal accent" and some differences b/w Victoria and Qld. For example, I've found many Queenslanders to finish off a statement with "hey". That, to me, borders on Okka.
Also, names for particular items are different.......
In Victoria a butternut pumpkin is as its called but in Qld they call them trombonals.
In Victoria we say "potato cake", but in Qld they call them "scallops."
And to Internetdatinglol? I live in Frankston and to me all our coffees are definately the same :)
