Coffees Around the World [Map]

How many single-origin coffees have you tried? Did you know that there are over 70 coffee-producing countries to explore? Many of those countries have several distinct coffee-growing regions, so there are easily hundreds of coffees around the world to try!

My goal is to find the best coffees from each and every country. I don’t believe I’ll ever find the best coffee in the world. With this much variety, that’s just too much to ask for. Then again, I’d be happy to be proven wrong, and I encourage you to point me to any coffee beans you think deserve the title.

I want to find the best coffees for cold brew, AeroPress, French press, and all my favorite coffee-brewing methods. I want to find the beans that make the most delicious Americanos and macchiatos and just plain, old drip coffee. That’s a lot to ask from just one coffee, which is why I’m exploring them all!

I’m also looking for all of the unique coffee brewing methods, coffee additives, and other tweaks that different cultures have made to our favorite drink. There is so much to discover in the world of coffee, and I can’t wait to learn it all.

I hope you’ll join me on this expedition. After all, coffee is better with a friend!
