Wow, really? That's so strange! Coffee shops - not chains, though - had been a thing in Melbourne since my parents' generation. If you didn't live in the city you took the thermos and it was a cause for celebration when a country town had an espresso machine (my tiny town didn't get one until 2004). But I had the cultural knowledge of "cool/urban people go to coffee shops". Maybe it depends on where there were a lot of Italians?
