Instagram is a fantastic place to find the trendiest spots to visit, especially if you are travelling to a new city,” Sarah Del Corral, partner at Tambia said.

“A cup of joe is such a natural part of our day to day, even when abroad, so it’s wonderful to see people share the places they love the most on social media. We hope our research serves as inspiration to guide you on your next travel and take in the colours, scents and wonderful sights that cities around the world have to offer, while you enjoy a locally authentic brew.

It turns out the coffee truly is better in Melbourne, which pains the Sydney-based Travel Weekly staff to write as we stubbornly engage in our ongoing interstate rivalry.
