There is a big difference in coffee shop culture between America and Australia; in America, it is very rushed and busy, everyone comes as quickly as they go running off to the next place they have to be, whereas in Australia the coffee shops are laid back, it is a place to go and relax, to catch up with friends or talk to the other customers. Australian coffee shops have a communal vibe that is absent from American shops. Well, the Australian owners of Saltwater Coffee missed this atmosphere after they relocating to New York, and after much thought, they decided to open a coffee shop in keeping with Australian culture. Not only does this place sell delicious coffee, but it is the perfect place to go to experience coffee in a way where the setting is also an important part. Take a real break out of your day, and sit back and relax with one of Saltwater’s tasty blends.
