To all the Coffee-holics, who would go gaga about coffee, who can just live on coffee but nothing else… You might not have got bored of coffee, but visiting to the monotonous chain of coffee shops everyday might not be your cup of coffee. To grab a cup of your love from a near by CCD or a Starbucks in a farther mall is a bit too mainstream (A lot canNOT happen everyday 😛 )
Have you ever thought of the World’s best ‘Coffee’ shops? Don’t you worry, we did and here are the world’s best coffee places…
1. Truth Coffee, South Africa
There are few cafes in the world as stunning as Truth, a “steampunk inspired” artisan coffee shop that is filled from top to bottom with metal piping and quirky old machinery. But people don’t just flock there for the decor – the coffee is all hand-roasted in a vintage cast iron drum, and the company supplies many of South Africa’s top hotels
2. Coffee Academics, Hong Kong
This gorgeous, industrial-chic space is a popular haunt for Hong Kong’s coffee heads. The team there love trying out all the latest equipment and techniques, and the baristas are more than happy to talk to customers through their latest concoctions.
3. La Cafeotheque, Paris, France
One of the pioneers of artisan coffee in the City of Lights, La Cafeotheque is known for its carefully-selected single estate varieties. The homemade pastries are pretty good, too.
4. Johan & Nyström, Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm is awash with great independent coffee shops, but this, the flagship store of the Johan & Nyström brand, is well worth a visit. The brand – whose beans are stocked in many high-end cafes – is dedicated to encouraging people to drink better coffee, and regularly runs training courses onsite.
5. Department of Caffeine, Singapore
Sustainably-sourced specialty coffee beans are the name of the game at this hidden-away little cafe, which also has an excellent tea selection. It gets particularly busy at the weekends, when there’s a special brunch menu, with items such as French toast stuffed with maple syrup bananas.
6. Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Portland, US
Founded in in 1999, Stumptown now has branches across the US, but people’s favourite is its 37,000 square-foot space on the Portland waterfront, where you can take tours and do tastings. The brand was a pioneer of the practice of having direct relationships with coffee producers, and paying fair prices for the beans.
