Coffee is more than just a warm drink; it is a medium of culture, conversations and relationships. There are countries that define their coffee culture uniquely, but these cities are the best places to share a cup of coffee:
- Taipei, Taiwan. As a former-Japanese colony, people in Taipei are very polite. They bow every time someone walks in the café. Besides being polite, they are also very friendly; they smile at everyone who enters the café. Some of the best cafés you should not miss to visit when you visit Taipei are Topo Café, Homey’s Café, and Barbie Café.
- Melbourne, Australia. The second biggest city of Australia is very reputable for being friendly. This place offers a lot of activities that Australia has to offer, but life here is a little bit mellower than other cities in the country. This is why Melbourne is a great place for a cup of coffee. There are a lot of cafés in Melbourne, but you must not miss to have a cup of coffee at Sonido in Fitzroy.
- Havana, Cuba. This city is in the verge of a positive economic shift with all its private enterprises and expansions. Its local tourism is also improving well, and the locals want to share their culture to travellers and other foreigners. The best way to share their culture is through their “café Cubana.” This is a full-bodied espresso that has sugar. Travellers should experience the city come alive with all the cafés and clubs that offer a colourful nightlife for all.
- Vienna, Austria. This is one of the small capitals of Europe. It offers the same cultural experience offered by big cities in Europe while having a low-key vibe. The open-air conversations their coffee shop offers are just amazing. You can try Café Fauenhuber, Café Phil, and Café Hawelka.
- Seattle, United States. The first thing that comes to mind when dealing with coffee in Seattle is Starbucks, the biggest coffee chain in the world. Seattle’s social life can be defined by the numerous coffee shops in the city. You can try University District’s Café Allegro if you visit this city.
- Rome, Italy. “Latte,” “espresso,” and “cappuccino” are all adopted from Italy, which is why the heart of the coffee culture comes from Rome. There are no express coffees in Rome. They respect their culture of coffee so much that they would stop and slow down for their morning coffee no matter how hectic life could get.
