History & Benefits: 

Coffee is believed to have originated from Ethiopia as the coffee plant grows there naturally. Around 500 –  800 A.D, the coffee plant was then taken to Yemen by one of the great masters, who was based in the port city of Mocha.

Hence, the name of the popular coffee flavour came from this city.

From then on, coffee has been one of the most loved beverages in Asia, due to its stimulants and its sleep reducing effects. Around 1615, the buzz about coffee had reached Europe through travellers and merchants.

This coffee invasion was the start of the love affair of the western world, where they began setting up coffee houses for the rich, and it also became the centre of intellectual activities.

The most loved beverage also has beneficial effects. Coffee is naturally rich in antioxidants that can help rejuvenate your body and well-being. The Green Coffee is believed to help speed up your metabolism and as an aid to weight loss.

Caffeine is also one of the substances that can be found in these little brown beans, which is the reason why loads of people (including me) love it.

It’s the side effects of coffee that most of us are after to avoid the sleepiness and sluggish feeling during daytime or when needed.

A must and trademark in every corner of the Ottoman empire. The preparation up to the serving of Turkish coffee has a character of its own;

Good Turkish coffee should be made in a copper cezve (a small pot that’s used to simmer the coffee) to ensure the prime taste and quality of the coffee.

When it comes to passion about food and drinks clearly Italians mastered their craft really well. Coffee is a very serious business in Italy, so it has to be treated with utter respect and a bit of research before you utter any random coffee lingo! Hence, it’s no surprise that Italian coffee is considered as one of the best coffee in the world.

Every time I visit Italy,  no mornings would be complete without a cup of a freshly brewed Italian coffee paired with a croissant.

When I visited Florence and went to a coffee shop, without thinking I uttered the words “latte, please” when I placed my order.  Of course, the barista gave me a cup of hot milk.

In Italy, Latte means milk! I felt so dumb and just stick to my order!  lesson learned. Caffè a.k.a. Italian coffee is a strong shot of espresso.

Majority of the known coffee blends nowadays that you can get from your coffee shops are with Italian names. Perfect examples of these are cafe latte, americano, macchiato and cappuccino. It is customary in Italy to offer or drink caffè after dinner.

So there’s you have it!
These my bet for the best coffee in the world and I’m sure you can add some more different types of coffee that you personally love.

  1. I miss Old Town coffee. I stayed in KL for 2 years and I frequent their resto, has a rural ambience to it and the taste like kapeng barako.

  2. I love the taste of coffee, but it does not agree with my stomach. I hate it, because I would love to be able to sample different coffees and see how they differ from reigon to reigon. I definitely do want to try the civet coffee though- what an interesting experience that would be!!

  3. I squealed a little after reading the title…saving, pinning for later etc. Total coffee lover here. Living in Fiji means we are a bit limited for good coffee here (they do make it, but not the same!) especially as I like quite a strong roast. My mother-in-law arrived yesterday to visit gifting me three bags of fresh coffee from NZ and my heart legit skipped a few beats.

    • Oh, bless you! I totally know how you feel. I recently ran out of the Jamaica’s Blue Mountain coffee and a friend will be going there soon, so obviously I begged her to bring me some of the JBM coffee. LOL! Nothing beats a good mug of coffee!

  4. ahhh! I did a drink tour in Bali and tried the Luwak Coffee! As surprised as I was about the contents of it, it didn’t taste much different from regular coffee to me. Although, I am not the person to ask about coffee! I’ve also had Colombian coffee down in Miami! That’s the good, strong stuff!! Great post 😉

  5. I have tried Kopi Luwak Coffee when I was in Vietnam and I loved it. I am a big coffee lover and I like ordering my daily coffee from South America. I haven’t tried Turkish coffee yet but I did try the Bosnian one, which is similar. I liked it a lot.

  6. I love coffee and my morning coffee time but I definitely didn’t know about all of these types of coffee. Thanks for the information. Will have to do some tastings. ^^

  7. As a coffee addict this was such an interesting read. I have to say the Old Town Coffee was a bit too sweat for me. I love a good, strong long black and that Luwak? I chickened out and couldn’t drink it. Great, detailed article. Loved it.

  8. My favorite on this list is Turkish coffee, hands down. I came back from Israel recently and my hotel had the best Turkish coffee, laced with tons of cardamom. Delicious rocket fuel!

  9. Coffee is universal and sipping coffee in a new place provides a great deal of pleasure. I particularly like Vietnamese coffee and Nespresso too! Any idea why Luwak is so expensive?

  10. Love coffee too!! This makes me want a cup, lol 🙂 Would love to try all of these sometime! Turkish coffee is great and I really love Cuban coffee too!

  11. Love Coffee. all types of Coffee and Coffee by any name is still Coffee for me. It is really amazing how many different Coffees are there in the world and how many different ways they can be made.

    • It’s absolutely alright, Anita. Few years back, I actually didn’t like coffee at all but when I tried it, I’m converted.

  12. Hi! This is a great blog–thanks for writing.

    I just wanted to say that you should remove kopi luwak from this list, as it’s deeply unethical and often involves terrible cruelty to the civet cats producing it. They’re kept in terrible, cramped conditions and force fed–sadly, there’s very little awareness around the damage to animal welfare caused by this coffee. There are many coffees of a far higher quality which are produced ethically, without animal abuse, and with great benefit to the people producing them.

    • Good day I would like to open a coffee bar and I need advice on the the best and rare coffees I could offer and where to get them

  13. I am a coffee connoisseur and hate saying this but your reviews are not entirely accurate. I have had the civet coffee and its extremely overrated. Best coffee in the world 1 through six from my opinion.
    1 a tie Kona and Jamaican Blue Mountain.
    2 Hawaiian coffee second
    3 Costa Rica Terratu
    4 Guatemalan
    5 Columbian
    6 Ethiopian Yagerchiff forgive the misspelling

    There you have it folks. LaMinita region is excellent coffee and same with the San Augustin region. If you

  14. Ryazan, I’m impressed that you seem to be updating this blog post so regularly. Good for you. Additionally, with millions of coffee producers and thousands of roasters, keeping up on the good brands is a daunting task.

    I might suggest that your readers also check out local micro roasters. Now just because they’re local doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re good. But at least the coffee should be fresh.

    I’m particularly fond of super smooth coffee. Typically coffee is smooth because it’s fresh; as in roasted just a few days ago. The best source for smooth coffee is to just search the internet for “smooth coffee”, or “smoothest coffee”, or “smooth coffee beans”. Do that and you’ll find a number of good choices.

    Thanks again for the good article.
