From years of drinking coffee and killing time in cafes around the world, I’ve managed to put together a list of the best coffees I’ve tried that could definitely compete for the title of ‘World’s Best Coffee’.
From hairy-footed-dwarfs movies to giant rugby players, the Kiwis excel in pretty much all aspects of life, including a sensational cup of coffee! Regarded as new coffee connoisseurs, coffee shops have popped up all over New Zealand, making it the perfect place for locals and tourists alike to pick up a quick flat white!
There’s no better way to see the sights and the people of Morocco than from their French-style coffee shops. Take a seat outside on the streets of Morocco, order a “nous-nous” (Arabic for “half-half” – a small glass half-filled with frothy milk and topped with espresso) and watch the world go by while you enjoy your fresh coffee.
As one of the most famous coffee-producing nations, Colombian coffee shops make a mean cuppa’. Unlike your typical coffee granules mixed with boiling hot water, Colombian coffee is brewed with sugarcane juice, making the classic espresso into a shot of caffeine and energy – and sugar!
While Italy is a front-runner for the ‘Best Coffee in the World’, it is also in the running for the worst coffee in the world! That’s if you choose to drink your café lattes in touristy pizzerias where a cup of coffee equals a hot bowl of watery milk. Instead, hunt out the little neighbourhood coffee shops where you will join the locals in standing by the bar and sipping coffee from ridiculously small cups.
As the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopian’s do coffee and they do it well! In fact, popping out for a cup could take a whole morning, as it’s often regarded as a “coffee ceremony”. When drinking coffee, the Ethiopian people like take their time carefully roasting, grinding, brewing and serving the coffee but by the end, you will want to spend another day doing it all over again.
