WA’s largest pre-election taste-tester spills the beans: Miss Maud Coffee Bean Poll Shows WA’s Appetite in a State that’s ‘Bigger than Ever’

After tens of thousands of cups of coffee and a whopping 28,074 coffee beans being dropped into special ‘voting beakers’ for the Miss Maud Coffee Bean Poll, WA’s traditional pre-election taste-tester has shown that coffee and conversation continue to be the order of the day and provide a delicious stimulant for community engagement.
 
In Miss Maud’s seventeen city and metropolitan Perth coffee houses and restaurants customers have been cooking up a heady brew to predict what’s likely to happen at this Saturday’s WA state election.
 
The massive community conversation which regularly gets people talking about what’s on offer ahead of an election and encourages them to consider their preferred flavor before going to the polls has been bubbling over despite suggestions by some commentators that the political menu was not enticing enough to engage voters ahead of election day.
 
Not so said Maud Edmiston, aka Miss Maud, leader of the Morning Tea Party of WA, a party that recognizes that ‘Every opinion matters and every bean counts.’
 
The Miss Maud Coffee Bean Poll, a State and Federal pre-election taste-testing tradition since the first coffee beans were cast in 1996 for the Federal Election, has become a surprisingly accurate predictor of community sentiment and speaks to the benefits of people having their say in a relaxed way – a tenet of Miss Maud’s Morning Tea Party.
 
“What started out as a way for customers to get involved in the life of their community, state and country has turned into an extraordinary community conversation where people enjoy expressing their views ahead of an election and others are able to see the temperature of voter sentiment changing through the simple rising of the beans, “ said Miss Maud.
 
For the past seventeen years the popular election forecaster has been stirring up caffeine inspired conversations and watching the beans rise as customers have distilled their thoughts in the sweetest way possible, over a cuppa.
 
And with more than 3,000 pre-election messages also received by Miss Maud during the past two weeks with customers sharing their view of what’s important to them,  her knowledge of what the community cares would be enough to write a book – or lead a state. 
 
However, at the coffee bean reveal presented at Miss Maud’s traditional Election Party attended by the Lord Mayor and business and community leaders and expressed on the sweet canvas of a 500 piece torte later donated to Manna Inc and St Barts to support homeless people, the Liberals were well ahead of Labor with other parties trailing well behind.

And while the surprise of the morning may not have been the coffee bean poll’s result, what really took the cake was the bold statement made via a beautifully decorated torte suggesting WA’s national leadership through an oversized state of WA set across a map of Australia and proclaiming “WA - Bigger than Ever”, a cheeky nod to the state’s go-ahead leadership as WA decides, possibly not just for this state.
 
Capping off the event and icing on the cake for future leaders was the Snap Bean Poll which invited guests to express their top three concerns from a menu which included seven issues to be addressed by a future government. The results in order of importance were Transport & Road Congestion 29%, House & Rent Affordability 26%, Law & Order 16%, Utility Cost Increases 12%, Social Justice 11%, State Asset Privatisation 5%, Planned City Development 1%.
