Too right - but sad to see so many kids being done out of a part time job. It was arrogant of them to think they could succeed by here, coming into a market that values good coffee done simply and well trained baristas over the sickly garnishes and US hype.

And to be fair, Nino Pangrazio took a sledge (quoted in The Age) at others doing coffee badly. I wouldn't be surprised to see more big name closures.
