What coffee is your airline serving?

Mon Aug 21, 2017 7:35 pm

B6 is still with Dunkin Donuts, While Delta, Alaska, Jet2.com, Fly Dubai are serving Starbucks.
Interestingly, TAP is serving "Delta" Coffee.

There quite a few coffee brands listed that I have not even heard of especially on the foreign airlines.
To each their own.

Lufthansa is idiosyncratic Nescafe in the terminal for a fee, in the lounge Lavazza, and I have no idea what they serve onboard its bitter on my weekly brussel flights but it early so I drink it.

Spirit serves Maxwell House. The grounds that are used are actually recycled and strained through an old tube sock. $3 a cup.

SK uses Nescafe ironically, despite coming from a strong coffee culture. Although Gevalia instant does exist, it is just German Kenco rebranded.

I like Austrian Airlines most. On long haul flights they serve about 10 different freshly prepared coffees from an old an traditional brand called "Julius Meinl".

Have a look to these trip reports:

http://heelsfirsttravel.boardingarea.com/2014/04/21/food-coffee-austrian-airlines-business-class/

My most favourite coffee is "Eiskaffee" - iced coffee with vanilla ice cream Viennese style!
DC-6, DC9, Do228, Saab340, Twin-Otter, C212, Fokker50, AN24, MD90, MD83, EMB120, A380, A300, A343, A346, B721, B742, B744, B748...

Shouldn't this topic be better suited in another forum such as travel polls & preferences!

Then we can leave the Civil Avation thread for news related topics.

EI serves Kenco coffee on its European flights and IB has Nescafe. Why would you order the coffee though when there's Barry's Tea? :P

Bean-head WARNING: All Lavazza brands (and there are many) except Qualita Oro contain C. robusta beans, as much as 40%. Qualita Oro is 100% C. arabica... and you can taste the difference.

All airline coffee and tea is compromised by ... aircraft water reservoirs and plumbing, and the detergents and bacteriocides used to maintain that equipment. IOW, the newer the frame, the better the coffee, ceteris paribus. On your next flight, request plain hot water, let it cool, and taste it. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I have Vittoria in the QF lounge, but that's the only place I'd drink it in Autralia unless desperate. It is better than SB or DD (quite a bit better) - the coffee options are extremely average. Grinders on VirginOz is OK too.

Foreign airlines having coffee brands with which you're unfamiliar? Inconceivable!

BA serve coffee filtered through a hoover (vacuum cleaner) bag. Well it tastes like it. The real brand name escapes me at the moment. They used to serve really nice coffee until BOB came along.

I've taken to drinking tea on BA instead which I wouldn't normally do on a flight.

Air Canada still serves Second Cup, I'm certain they are keeping the company in business. I've never tried it on a flight and I'm not sure wat roast they are using, but generally that coffee is hit or miss in store. I imagine it's better than a lot out there.

What I really don't like are these acidic light roasts people are into these days, but that seems to be more a thing independent roasters do rather than large outfits. Any airline using illy has made a good choice.
