The most exclusive coffees in the world
Coffee is one of the most popular drinks there is. Whether it’s an espresso, cappuccino or latte macchiato, coffee is a wonderful pick-me-up. Did you know that around 124 tasty types of coffee? If not, we’ll take you now and show you the most exclusive coffees in the world.
An immense variety of coffees
Even though an immeasurable variety of coffees is offered, two major types dominate the coffee market. Obtained from the high-quality Robusta beans, this is a strong, low-acid variety with a slightly earthy taste. The Arabica bean on the other hand, serves with a mild, slightly fruity, varietal taste that you will notice when enjoying your coffee. This leaves only a small contingent of exclusive beans on the market.
The two finest coffees
St Helena Coffee from Africa
St Helena is a small island off the coast of Africa. The beans of the Green Tipped Bourbon Arabica coffee variety grown there were brought to Paris by Napoleon and then to other parts of the world. In 1839, St. Helena coffee was honored by the London coffee trading agency W. Bumie & Co. as the “best quality coffee in the world.”
This rare delicacy is one of the most exclusive coffees and convinces withits pleasant aroma. The coffee is described as mild yet full-bodied.
A fine spice and a chocolaty component form its sweet finesse. The aftertaste is slightly tart, with a fruity tendency. The organic coffee is cultivated with high quality from planting to harvesting and is only handled by hand. This explains the high price: about 70-80€ per pound.
Jamaica Blue Mountain from the Caribbean
Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, as the name suggests, grows in the heights of the island of Jamaica and is one of the exclusive coffees. It grows slowly and gently, developing its own aroma. The special taste of the coffee has made it a well-known popularity. It is mild, but presents a fruity taste that hides a discreet nutty tone, as well as a mild acidity. This coffee is also harvested by hand alone. The price per pound is around 75-85€.
The world’s most expensive coffee
Kopi Luwak, also called cat coffee, is the most expensive delicacy among the coffees. It got its special name because of its extremely unusual production. This is because in order to obtain the Kopi Luwak variety, the cherries go through a slightly different path of creation. In order to obtain the characteristic aroma of the caramel-like, earthy, as well as chocolate-like essence, they pass through the intestinal tract of the equally special Indonesian creeping cat for the first time.
With a price per pound of about 300-600€, this type of coffee is one of the most expensive in the world.
The production gives high quality
The cultivation and production of the various coffee beans, which form the basis of the multifaceted coffee varieties, are responsible for the different taste aromas.
A distinction is made between three types of production:
the drying process
The cherries are placed on drying trays to dry. In this way, the beans absorb the sweet aroma of the pulp.
the wet preparation
The pulp is removed from the beans. The beans are then fermented with the addition of water. In this way, the aroma can be strongly influenced.
The air cleaning process loosens residues such as shells from the beans.
