My Favorite Cups of Coffee from Around the World

At home, I tend to enjoy a cappuccino when being social or after a delicious meal.

On the road, I drink coffee regularly, often as a way to stake my claim to a table in a cafe or restaurant so I can take a break, people watch, read, and write in my journal.

And once I hit Colombia, where I felt the necessity to enjoy top export regularly, I went so far as to make a cup of coffee for myself each morning for several months.

Interesting photos.

Simply put: coffee is nectar of the gods. I usually find myself drinking about 20 cups each day as part of my work. Nothing fancy, just give me some black nectar. That's one reason I enjoy the coffee culture here in Seoul. Always a good place to stake out a corner and write notes for the next episode.

20 cups! You're exaggerating just a little, right?

Great photo essay, as I'm a newbie traveler I always make it a point to try one of the breakfast staple in every country, but since I'm not a coffee drinker all I can do right now is admire those photos that you shared. I love the presentation of the one from Australia but what got me me curious is the one you had in Thailand, it looks delicious.

Ah! I absolutely love coffee too. How can you not when you're background is Italian. I must admit that the coffee in Brazil was great too! I was hooked. May be going to Colombia next winter so I'll def have my taste buds working. Great pics! -Tanya @ Off-Track Backpacking
