Ecuador at the rim of a volcano 7000 feet up and above the clouds.

Unless it is weak, there hasn't been a coffee that I haven't liked. I love coffee as long as it is strong, dark, and puts hair on my chest. πŸ˜‰

You got hair on your chest? Oh my. πŸ€“

@zeuser two words: brazilian wax...so, no hair anywhere...πŸ˜‰

The best coffee for me is an ristretto (short pull) espresso. Brings out the sweetness of the coffee bean with none of the bitter notes that are extracted at the tail end.

For all the comments about cappuccino - I find that many coffee shops either make them too dry (float the foam on the cofee) or too wet (that's a latte!). Did get a great Turkish coffee at one of the local restaurants here in Houston.

Coffee Times in Lexington, KY. Used to stop there almost every morning, and it was always delicious.

I found a vanilla mocha mix, put it in my coffee with my vanilla creamer, it was delicious!!

Best coffee ever was in Costa Rica on the plantation where the beans were roasted and brewed....it was a great tour of the plantation and an interesting lesson in the history of coffee and the production process πŸ™‚

IMO, a Moka pot is the only way to prepare coffee. Never an aluminum one - stainless steel only. Yum!

A Japanese client went to Kenya and brought me a packet of coffee on his return. The packaging was unassuming so I have no idea what the brand was. It was the best coffee I have ever tasted. I guess I will have to go to Kenya one day to find it again.

Many years ago at Sears Fine Foods on Powell Street in San Francisco. I want a time machine to go back and have seconds, πŸ˜›

I really only had coffee from Dunkin' Donuts. It was Hazelnut. I'm not a coffee drinker.

I was in Austin Texas for a conference early in the century, and I was hung over as hell. I went to a little Mexican place for some huevos with some legitimate frijoles and ice cold salsa with a warm tortilla, and a cup of hot, strong coffee that made me moan with the first sip. I grind my beans (dark roast Arabica, usually) and use a French press, and that is good java, but that cup in Austin from almost twenty years ago still lives on in my memory.

That place sounds like heaven!

@Ellatynemouth It was wonderful! Not much in the way of good Mexican food here in NC, but the coffee was the major memory.

Turkish coffee in Istanbul Turkey.

Served in those tiny brass espresso cups with enough sugar to make the spoon stand up in the cup...lol lol

Some jamaican blue mountain stuff back in '97.

Now I'm a Starbucks ice coffee monster. Yeah I know.
Cream, not stirred, just let float down, shot of espresso. then I add raw sugar on my own & it's "crunchy coffee" for a little while.
Gives me a 'gasm.

My parents own one of those old-fashioned coffee percolators. It makes an amazing cup of coffee. I like my coffee really strong (so that I can then tone it down with cream and sugar). The percolator brew cycle keeps running the already strong coffee through the grinds which picks up more subtle flavors that single brew machines don't pick up.

Is it the kind that you put on the stove to boil?

@IAJO163 The one my parents own is electric and plugs into an outlet but I think the ones that go on top of a stove work along the same principles.

The best coffee I have is whatever I have at a given moment. From a fine restaurant to Aldi brand instant. I try to live in the moment.

French press-made!

Java Joes in Bradford, West Yorkshire England, its heaven in a cup......haha heaven

I have two πŸ™‚

About 20 years I had a coffee in an Italian Deli in Poland St, London W1 and it was magnificent.

And years before that, I accidentally stirred my coffee with a spoon that had spices of some sort on from my dad making and baking a cake. Delicious πŸ™‚

Hmmm. An Italian cafΓ© in Newcastle upon Tyne.

I think Paulig coffee is the nicest I ever tasted.

Always this morning's coffee.

Batdorf & Bronson brand at the Dancing Goats Coffee Bar, Lacey WA

The best coffee was in Berlin, Germany. I don't remember what the blend was.

They do a good coffee. Don’t know why it should be better there than the UK, but it’s delicious.

Blue Mountain Coffee in Port Antonio, Jamaica. Oh my that place is paradise.?

Honestly the best coffee I have ever tasted was in Vicenza, Italy. I became addicted to espresso. I don't know what actual brand of coffee it was but it was full of body & flavor. The scenery wasnt too bad either
