Hi!

Favourite airline coffee??? There's not such a good thing around any airline!!! The best coffee you get in coffee shops..... my favourite one is Mariazinha or Nicola, both in Lisbon! Mariazinha is a very old coffee shop that still sales the coffee grain and mows it in your presence... then you come out with your coffee in a neat package and you can feel the smell all over! Nicola is very good with their worldwide selection of expressos..... I particulary love the ethiopian Moka Sidamo, Brazilian Lote Santos, East Timor and the very rare Zambia!!!! Now you can't get anything close to that in an airline!!! Sorry!
regards

Café Britt [ http://centralamerica.com/cr/tours/cafebritt.htm ] of course. Only the best. Served in all TA flights.

Exactly, as the coffeemakers onboard cannot make a decent cup of coffee due to the pressured environment. The water does not get heated to the proper temperature needed to brew an ideal cup of coffee (somewhere between 200-205 degrees Fahrenheit), since the water boils at a lower temperature, and boiling water and coffee do not mix. Boiling water completely destroys the flavors and oils, which leads to a flat tasting coffee.

You're better off getting a cup of coffee from Starbucks (Who over roast their beans BTW) or whatever coffee shop is at the airport.

My favorite coffee is Cafe Britt, as TACAA320 said. I always go to the factory in Heredia to buy the pack when I go to CR. But on planes, I think KLM serves the best coffee in the air. "Cafe de Colombia, the richest coffee in the world" it says.

I was working a flight for AA and I had a gentleman a cup of coffee he tastes it and says "wow this is really awful coffee" then 2 rows later I hand an elderly lady a cup and she "Wow this is really delicious coffee. it is the best cup I have ever had". I had to supress my laughter.

Don't need to go to Heredia...you find Cafe Britt in just about any supermarket!

However ts great to get it just out of the factory .


I've noticed in recent years Cafe Britt has become a major trademark producing all sorts of things going from Souvenirs made in China to really good chocolates ...yummy

I am personally a huge fan of Seattle's Best on AS. However, I can drink pretty much any kind of coffee, as long as it's black  Smile

I work for the route sales side for a locally-based coffee and tea company and I hear similar things. One of my accounts will rave about our coffee (most of my gas station accounts get our standard coffee blend), and another will complain about it (but yet keeps buying it as they're too cheap to switch to one of our other coffees). What one person thinks is bad coffee, someone else may find excellent. The problem is that for many years now, the bulk of Americans have been drinking bad coffee. The equipment they use, coupled with the increased use of inferior robusta beans blended in with the better arabica bean by the major coffee coffee companies contributed to this. The elderly lady probably was used to coffee that was brewed using a percolator, which is the worst type of maker to use (The coffee that has already been brewed gets recirculated through the coffee grinds and takes on a bitterer taste), so the coffee that was served onboard was something special by comparison. The person that complained is probably used to going to one of the coffee chains, whose coffees by comparison to a standard food-service coffee, is like night and day. Or he grinds his own coffee at home, using a coffee that doesn't contain robusta beans.

The only way I'll drink coffee on a flight is with a little something added to it, if you know what I mean. Sometimes, putting some liqour in it is the only way it'll have any taste.

I agree that the KLM cafe de Colombia is actually quite good. At least I have noticed that it didn't taste like regular airline coffee the times i've had it..

Worst? It's a tough competition between Maersk Air (now Sterling) and China Eastern. The last of is kinda excused, as coffee seem to be quite an exception on domestic Chinese flights  Smile



Last flight: SAW-CPH on H9 on 02/11/09 - Next Flights: 23/12/09 CPH-AAL on QI, 30/12/09 CPH-LHR on SK, 19/01/10 CPH-CDG-

The coffee on Air Jamaica, Blue Mountain, is quite good, if you like your java strong.

Has anyone had coffee on an Ethiopian Airlines flight? Coffee originated in that country, which boasts some of the best beans in the world.
