"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."

Interesting.................

And to Internetdatinglol? I live in Frankston and to me all our coffees are definately the same :)
