Fifteenth-century Arabs were the first to cultivate coffee and a Frenchman was behind the 1843 debut of the worlds first commercial espresso machine.

There have been a few leaps forward since then.

“People are more and more interested in where the beans come from, and how theyre harvested and roasted,” says New Zealand barista champion Nick Clark of Wellingtons Flight Coffee. “There are so many variables involved in producing a great cup of coffee these days, and the industry has had to evolve to meet growing consumer expectations.”

The worlds best coffee cities are those where the coffee isnt just good—its great.

After the Dutch, Scandinavians have the highest coffee consumption per capita in the world.

While Finns drink the most among Scandinavians, Icelanders are also coffee crazy.

“Not too long ago, cafés in Reykjavík were more about the food,” says Kristin Thora, a barista at Icelandic institution Kaffitar and reigning National Cupping Champion.

“Youd have coffee and cake and didnt mind how the coffee was as long as the cake was good.”

“Then, about 25 years ago, people started to care about how their coffee was served.”

With Icelands lack of commercial coffee behemoths, smaller businesses have had a chance to flourish.

Now you can hardly walk a city block without passing a coffee shop.

“Drip coffee is popular in the home, but Icelanders tend go to coffeehouses for espresso-based drinks,” says Thora.

Local order: Latte or cappuccino.

15世纪的阿拉伯人最早栽培咖啡的。1843年一名法国人首次制造出第一台商用咖啡机。

从那时起,咖啡的历史就有几次巨大的飞跃。

“人们对咖啡豆的来源、如何收获、如何烘焙越来越感兴趣,”新西兰惠灵顿咖啡比赛冠军咖啡大师Nick Clark说,“要想做出一杯好喝的咖啡,里面有太多的影响因素。咖啡业需要不断进步才能满足顾客日益高涨的期望。”

在世界上咖啡最棒的城市里,那里的咖啡不仅仅是好,而是非常好。

除了荷兰,北欧人是世界上人均咖啡消费量最多的国家。

虽然在北欧人中,芬兰人是喝咖啡喝得最多的,但冰岛人也很热衷于咖啡。

“不久之前,在雷克雅未克,去咖啡馆更多的是去吃食物。”Thora说,他是冰岛Kaffitar的咖啡师,也是咖啡大赛的全国卫冕冠军。

“你会点咖啡和蛋糕,只要蛋糕口味不错,你就不会介意咖啡的味道。”

“接着,大约在25年前,人们开始关心咖啡的服务。”

冰岛缺乏咖啡巨头,小企业有机会蓬勃发展。现在你去每一个城市街区基本上都能看到咖啡店。

“过滤咖啡在家里很流行,但是冰岛人喜欢去咖啡馆喝浓缩咖啡,”Thora说。

当地必点咖啡:拿鐵或卡布奇诺。
