What Are The Best Coffees In the World?

Coffee has been enjoying a new found popularity over the last 2 decades or so. Much of the credit goes to the proliferation of Starbucks and the ubiquitous free Wifi which has made the wired coffee shop THE place to hang out. You get your daily dose of java and stay plugged into the world.

Then there is the research which showed that coffee is actually good for you, contrary to all the bad press not too long ago.

Both of these factors were instrumental in providing coffee with its new lease on life.

But as any true coffee connoisseur will tell you, not all coffees are the same and some are much better than others.

So here is a list of the top 5 coffees in the world. This is of course, a subjective evaluation and I anticipate getting lots of dissenting opinions, but to each his own.

This is MY list of great coffees that I wish to share with you. Please note that I have not arranged them in any particular order because to my mind, they are all the best and different.

Below are two coffees that come from a place that would surprise many people. These two are roasted and packaged in Taiwan. The coffee beans though are from different places.
