Adelaide's coffee scene has come a long way in recent years. Far from offering just a single dark-roasted blend, many cafes now offer multiple beans and extraction methods. But whether you're a fan of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe poured through a V60, or a full-bodied Brazilian extracted into a latte, these spots have you covered. Go on, get that day started.
