How are the Top Cafes 2017 rankings calculated for each city?
For the Top Cafes 2017 rankings we calculate a special 2017 score for each cafe based on the reviews posted to the cafe between 1 January 2017 and Midnight 30 December 2017 UTC.
Once we calculate this score for each cafe we order all cafes in the city by the calculated cafe score and apply the following selection criteria:
- A cafe must have received a minimum quantity of reviews between 1 January 2017 and Midnight 30 December 2017 UTC time
- More than 75% of the cafe's reviews must be credible
The minimum quantity of reviews varies based on the total number of cafes and reviews in each city. For Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane (Beanhunter's largest cities) this value was 9. For other smaller cities the value was lower.
If after applying the above criteria the city has more than 5 eligible cafes we will publish the rankings for that city.
If the city has more than 100 eligible cafes we will limit the results to 100.
