As promised, here is the second instalment of our three-part guide to the best coffee beans in the world. Again, listed in no particular order, and all equally worthy of trying out:
4) Sumatra Mandheling Coffee
A fantastically smooth coffee with a full body and low acidity level, Sumatra Mandheling coffee is also known for its sweet, earthy, and often herb-like aftertaste. It is a complex yet exceptionally palatable coffee that originates from central Sumatra, and has been making waves on the global gourmet coffee scene for some time. This is another bean that translates into a hugely rich and indulgent cup of coffee.
5) Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee
Widely regarded by many as the best coffee beans in the world for some time, Jamaican Blue Mountain (i.e. the best Jamaican coffee) is an ultra-premium commodity that isn’t always easy to track down. Grown in the Blue Mountain District of Jamaica, Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is beautifully balanced with a complex taste and a silky mouthfeel. Far from overpowering, a good cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee presents the kinds of subtle background flavors and notes that only a true connoisseur would appreciate. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is already one of the most expensive coffees money can buy, but is only likely to become more costly as demand steadily grows.
6) Mocha Java Coffee
Mocha Java is actually a blend of coffee beans, which brings together the standout characteristics of Indonesian Java Arabica coffee and Arabian (Yemen) Mocha coffee. Java Arabica coffee is renowned for its cleanness, brightness, and smoothness, which all pair perfectly with the much livelier and more intense characteristics of Yemen Mocha coffees. The result is one of the best coffee beans in the world, which delivers the best of all worlds in a beautifully balanced cup.
7) Ethiopian Harrar Coffee
Fragrant, spicy, and naturally full-bodied, Ethiopian Harrar coffee packs a powerful punch. The flavor is not dissimilar to dry red wine – bursting with beautiful dried fruit flavors and a zingy aftertaste that lingers on the palate. This is also a highly complex coffee that varies significantly from one crop to the next, exhibiting tones of everything from dark chocolate to blueberries to cinnamon to cardamom.
8) Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee
Last but not least in our list of the best coffee beans in the world, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee owes its unique properties to its equally unique cultivation environment. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee is grown at an elevation of up to 6600 feet above sea level, resulting in a sweet and aromatic coffee that often exhibits a notable taste of coconut. A medium roast is great for bringing out the subtleties of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, while a darker roast brings its sweetness and depth of body to the forefront.
