Great Coffee

The best coffee, without a doubt was in a small hotel in Rome. I got my own silver pitcher of hot, black coffee--enough for me so that I didn't have to ask for more. The coffee was accompanied my own silver pitcher of fresh, rich cream--warmed slightly. Brown sugar was already on the table. I don't remember any Italian from that trip, but I do remember the "cafee" (or however you spell it).

I love the coffee you get on American Airlines' flights. Don't ask me why it tastes so much better than anywhere else, it just does. <BR>

This sounds stupid I know but one of the best cups of coffee I remember having was at at a youth hostel in Dublin some 10 years ago. It was Bewley's medium roast. Maybe it was that I came in on the red eye but I was stunned at how delicious it was. <BR> <BR>I should tell you I have been all over Europe and pretty much make annual trips but that was my best coffee ever. Dadump dump!!!!

As a black-coffee drinker, this is a subject close to my heart. Italy for espresso, but if I want a longer drink, I'm not so keen on the "americano". For a great, longer black coffee the dutch are fantastic. I don't know what they do, but it tastes really creamy and smooth (even tho it's black). <BR> <BR>The worst? Greece, greece, greece. I swear it's not coffee, it's soil.

Let's face it, in Europe it's the ambiance, not the coffee. If you don't believe me, try a cappucino at the Caffe Florian on Piazza San Marco in Venice after a nice meal in a local restaurant.

I disagree that its the ambience not the coffee in Europe. I think its both, and the coffee is certainly good (better). And, Starbucks coffee is bad tasting, except for the cold coffee sold in bottles (Frappuchino)which is quite nice, albeit milky. Italian coffee is really the best. I have found an Italian chain called Cova that sells here in HongKong, which is very good.

Capuccino in Italy is drunk only at breakfast , after that it's espresso. You will be immeadiately labeled a tourist and someone who knows nothing about coffee. so drink up early!You can get it but they think you are weird.
