Everybody is looking for that perfect specialty gourmet coffee. Brand names such as Peet’s coffee, Starbucks specialty coffee and Nectar of Life Gourmet Organic Coffee are just a few of the specialty gourmet coffees that coffee drinkers can’t seem to do without. You may be interested to know that specialty coffees extend not only to these name brands but gourmet coffees can be separated by regions of the world or even by the type of coffee beans.
If you were to go to Hawaii, the famous specialty coffee is their Kona coffee. The coffee beans in this area are grown in unique conditions that produce a special flavor that Hawaii is famous for. Kona coffee has a rich medium flavor and aroma that is very popular worldwide, so much so that this coffee is rare and rather expensive.
If you want a specialty coffee that is highly sought after and considered the best and most expensive, take a look at Jamaican or Blue mountain gourmet coffee. This specialty coffee has a smooth rich flavor that is second to none. What makes this coffee so special is where it is grown. The climate and soil conditions in Jamaica really produce something uniquely different. This coffee is expensive because: production is limited, and the Jamaican Coffee board controls all exports. This is to ensure only the highest quality coffee beans are used and sold and that the reputation for being the best in the world is maintained.
The aforementioned are examples of gourmet specialty coffees beyond what most are used to from the likes of Starbucks and Peet’s. Another gourmet specialty coffee that is expensive and highly sought after is that made with the Peaberry coffee bean. Grown as a single bean instead of two in a pod, this unique individual coffee bean has all the nutrients in one bean instead of dividing the nutrients amongst two, giving it that special flavor. There are many special gourmet coffees out there from different regions of the world; Kona coffee, South American coffee, Blue Mountain coffee, and coffee beans from Africa just to name a few. All of these coffees from all over the world provide some unique flavors and aromas and are definitely worth trying.
