Gourmet Coffee Brands

by Angela on October 16, 2009

The number of gourmet coffee lovers is increasing by the day. The sheer taste, flavor and aroma of gourmet coffee brands are sure to make anyone fall for them. What is that makes them so special?

I have found it to be a combination of the blend, the bean, the roast and the final taste. It is these qualities that make the difference between coffee and premium gourmet coffee brands. Another factor that makes them so special is the exclusivity. The price of gourmet coffee brands is therefore not merely decided by its quality, but by how it is made and where it comes from. All these factors combine to make gourmet coffee brands what they are.

Exclusivity

The very mention of some of the top gourmet coffee brands will be enough for your mind to conjure up images of particular regions of the world. For instance, one of the leading coffee brands, Kopi Luwak, can transport you to the farms of Indonesia. Similarly, Kona Coffee is a specialty of Hawaii. Of course, no lists of gourmet coffee brands can be complete without the perennial favorite, Starbucks, a household name throughout North America and Europe. It is the exclusivity of these brands and their taste that makes them so sought after by coffee connoisseurs.

Famous Gourmet Coffee Brands

Leading gourmet coffee brands come from all over the world.  A good majority of them come from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica and Guatemala. There are some top coffee brands from Vietnam and Kenya as well. The South American countries, with their fertile soil and ideal climate, are the major sources for many leading brands. One good example of a South American gourmet coffee brand is the Tarazu Coffee which originates in Costa Rica.

Another premium brand of Latin American origin is Hacienda La Esmeralda Geisha, which is grown from farms in the lush tropical rainforests of Panama. One of the reasons for the popularity of many of the top gourmet coffee brands that are from South American countries is attributed to their unique blend.

El Injerto from Guatemala is another premium coffee brand. This particular coffee brand retails for about $50 per pound. Yuaco Selecto AA is a brand from Puerto Rico which is world famous for its mild flavor and scintillating taste. The Kopi Luwak brand from Indonesia is known to so for about $160 per pound in many countries.

The Future of Gourmet Coffee Brands

With the coffee sector projected to grow at a rapid rate, we can look forward to many more premium quality gourmet coffee brands in the near future. If you are a true coffee connoisseur, you must make it a point to do some research on the leading brands and why they are so special. Keep your knowledge on gourmet coffee brands current to find the best match for your tastes.
