Instant pick-me-up at Rockhampton cafes

We’ve come a long way since the dark days of instant coffee. Australia is now renowned as serving up some of the best cups of sweet, smooth caffeine in the world. If like the rest of the country, you consider yourself a coffee connoisseur, a normal cup of coffee just won’t do. You want coffee that has been freshly roasted, ground to perfection and extracted through an espresso machine for just the right amount of time. You don’t want coffee that will just get you through the day; you want a delicious morsel of caffeine to brighten your whole week. Well we’ve found the best cafes in Rockhampton to visit if you’re a coffee lover.
