Default Poll: The World's Best Coffee

This is not really off topic, because you can buy really good coffee beans at a lot of cruise destinations. I only drink tea, myself, but my son-in-law is a coffee fanatic. He ranks Jamaican(Jablum) Blue Mountain as the best, Costa Rican Cafe Britt second, a brand we picked up ar Roatan, Hondurous third and Kona fourth. We have Blue Mountain and Cafe britt beans in the refrigerator for guests. Sure wish I liked coffee.

I guess I am not picky. It would have to taste like McDonald's coffee to taste really bad to me. lol
That's is some of the worst coffee I have ever tasted.
I drink folgers and don't tend to deviate much.
Not much of a connoisseur I guess.

We bought some fabulous coffee in a little grocery store in Puntarenas. But Blue Mountain is right up there.

Looking forward to scoring some Kona on the Let's Get Lei'd Cruise.

Some Kona aribica coffees aren't bad, but our hands-down favorite is Blue Mountain aribica. I only have two pounds of beans left, and I'm hoarding them. Yum!

100% Kona Coffee from Ferrari in Kona. By the way , be careful when you buy "kona"
coffee in most places in Hawaii it is a 10% blend (with the rest Brazilian in most cases).

My favorite is Café con Leché at LaBobonera in Old San Juan, followed by the coffee at Waffle House

I personally did not care for the Blue Mountain coffee, but believe it or not really like our Dunkin Donuts coffee, go figure?? Also enjoy an occasional Starbucks coffee, usually while waiting to board a plane for a crusie :-)

Dunkin' Donuts does have some good coffee - I prefer it over Starbucks and a whole lot cheaper.

Don't know about the world's best, tend to agree with CA on that one, whatever I happen to be drinking at the time, but the worst coffee I've ever had was all the coffee I drank in SF. How could such a wonderful place have such horrible coffee. Resorted to McDonalds coffee to get anything that even closely resembled coffee. Now that's bad.

Coffee? I choose 7-11 over starbucks or CIci's any day. They always have 4 or 5 fresh pots of differends roasts and flavors...not to mention the assortment of creamers!
The BEST part is that if you have your 7_11 mug, they usually just wave you thhhrough and don't charge you! What a way to start my morning!

I personally like Kahlua coffee myself ...on a cold day. I like the standing on the bow with mittens idea from the ice breaker picture. Coffee is important, but its the creamer that I am truly picky about. None of that powder junk for me!

Costa Rican Cafe Britt, of course! Although, this last time that Jose was in Costa Rica he brought me about 8 different brands, and they were all good. What is really terrible coffee is what they serve at the Lido buffets on ALL CRUISE SHIPS! We are seriously thinking about taking a little 4 cup drip pot on the Summit so we can have some REAL coffee in the mornings!

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I LOVE the smell of a good coffee (especially in the morning when I am just waking up.......)

I am with Lisa-I love the smell of ground coffee. I don't drink much unless one puts it in a drink called a "white Chocolate mocha" from Starbucks. My husband said it was just an excuse to drink something Chocolate and pretend to be a grownup drinking coffee. I am 35 so I THINK I am a grown-up but that's for another kind of message board.

Just gotta say-my favorite aunt's sister and her husband own a coffee plantation in Kona that I hope to get to visit when we take our cruise to Hawaii. Maybe I will be a coffee connosseiur by the time I leave. But I live in Seattle and if they haven't gotten me addicted to the stuff here, I doubt even a coffee plantation in Hawaii could do it.
