Is it the coffee, found in the far outreaches of Brazil. Hand picked organic and sent by donkey to the town, carried delicately on the local bus to town, trained to a major city and shipped to Europe, washed and packaged and distributed globally?
Is it the barista, bred to smile so that you are weak at the knees and never display any sense that your coffee is sour even if it looks superb. You look up and that divinely chiselled face looks at you magnetically and you smile softly and disappear with the caffeine he has spent minutes making you wait for as he seems so slow to turn that expresso machine knob?

Could it be the machine that makes your latte special. All the steam, knobs and the delicately balanced milk jug, that gurgles and spurts as it delicately warms the white organic skinny milk obtained from a visiting eco farmer who only delivers to 3 locations?
Is it a takeaway coffee from an outdoor coffee van perched upon a hill in some amazing place with a superb view? The Paris Hilton? The Sensory Lab in Melbourne, Australia? Or a traditional italian coffee from Ginos in Fremantle, Perth.
The best coffee could be the one you drink ritualistically every morning. It could be the first coffee after a long trek across arduous land in a far distant place, or the special drink you only have when you travel to a certain part of the city on occasion.
Then theres still Barcelonan, Brazilian or Columbian coffee. Any cafe you might find between the Swiss Alps and the Himalayas. With over "2.25 billion cups of coffee"* consumed per day in our world, it may not be the easiest task to determine the best coffee in the world. Yet its worth the adventure of trying.
