The best coffee in the world

Today is October 1, so we celebrate International Coffee Day 2021. A very special day that brings together all coffee producers in the world as well as lovers of this drink, one of the most widely consumed in the same celebration. daily. There are many specialties or types of coffee that exist so we are going to review them and we will know which is the best coffee in the world.

The best coffee in the world

Perhaps for you that you are reading the best coffee is that of Colombia , one of the most famous, or you may like more to choose a variety that is, for example, decaffeinated. When it comes to saying which is the best coffee in the world, the choice will be subjective based on the individual’s own taste, but if we look at what the experts think, there is a type of coffee that stands out above the rest.

We are referring to coffee from Laos, something that may surprise many because for years it has been Kopi Luwak coffee , from Indonesia that was always considered the best of all coffees, but perhaps this title has been assigned because it is also one of the most expensive. However, there are many people who after having a cup of Kopi Luwak coffee, also known as Civet coffee or Cat Poop, have been disappointed to notice a perhaps too particular flavor.

This is Laos coffee, the best in the world

The same is not the case with Laos coffee »Laos Bolaven Plateau» which was awarded the «Cup of Excellence», an award that distinguishes the best coffee in the world in a contest that brings together experts and professionals from the world of coffee each year in Italy . This year the winner is this coffee that takes its name from the place where it comes from, the Bolaven Plateau (in southern Laos) formed by an ancient volcano that collapsed on itself. The particular origin of this place with beautiful waterfalls has made the soil extremely fertile, as can be seen in the lush vegetation and, of course, in the vast coffee plantations. The result is a pure Arabica espresso with a round flavor, with notes of cereals and aromatic herbs that makes it irresistible to anyone who considers themselves a coffee lover.

The other best coffees in the world

In addition to the coffee made in Laos, the same contest highlights these coffees:

  • The “Hacienda La Esmeralda” coffee grows in plantations in Panama at 1,850 meters above sea level, it has an aroma reminiscent of jasmine and fruits such as peaches and apricots.
  • The ‘Jamaica Blue Mountain’ , grown on a chain that rises more than 2,500 meters above sea level, is one of the rarest and highest quality coffees that exist, so much so that it is also used as the basis for the secret recipe of the famous liquor «Tia Maria». What makes this coffee so special are the peculiar conditions of the environment in which it is born: the altitude, the dense fog and the scarce annual rains slow down the maturation of the beans that are larger and have a more intense flavor. The result is a sweet, delicate flavor that is very rich in nuances ranging from tobacco to vanilla.
  • The “Fazenda Santa Ines” coffees and its “Yellow Bourbon” variety , produced in Brazil, have always been hand-picked. It has a characteristic flavor of berries and cherries.
  • The Kopi Luwak coffee that we have already mentioned and which is a type of coffee grown in Indonesia that has a truly unusual history: the civet, a nocturnal animal, selects and eats the ripest coffee berries and expels the most indigestible part, it is say, the grains. Its gastric juices deprive the coffee of any bitter aftertaste, which is why, thanks to a particular and careful processing, a roasted coffee is obtained with a sweet aroma and a velvety taste reminiscent of chocolate. Precisely because of these characteristics, Kopi Luwak is among the most expensive coffees in the world, whose cost reaches 700 euros per kg, or 7 euros per cup.
  • The “Black Ivory Coffee” is produced in northern Thailand with the same process as Kopi Luwak, with the difference that in this case the coffee is digested by elephants; That is why it can be worth up to 900 euros per kg! The result is a slightly bitter taste with a sweet and caramelized touch.
