As you might be aware (and if you’re any kind of hipster you would be (and if you’re reading this blog you must be a hipster)), this coming weekend the MONA FOMA will be held in Launceston, Tasmania.

Hello world!

Wow, that’s quite a strong claim, I hear you say! After all, Melbourne is renowned as a destination for coffee snobs from all around, and locals will proudly talk about how it’s the world’s fourth-wave coffee capital. So what’s that about Melbourne’s coffee being shit then?
