When travelling it can sometimes be hard to find decent coffee.
It is no surprise to find excellent coffee in Melbourne. However Seven Seeds is definitely worth a visit.
Last month I travelled to the US and Taiwan via Hong Kong. My double shot latte at Fuel Espresso, a chain from Wellington NZ whose first international outlet is in Hong Kong, was fantastic. Later the same day I discovered Agnès b. Délices; the coffee was astounding and accompanying French chocolates were divine.
Good coffee in the USA is more problematic. One should, of course, avoid Starbucks but sometimes desperation takes over. Fortunately, I just happened to be walking past Intelligentsia Coffee on Jackson on my way to Union Station in Chicago. Excellent coffee, nice attitude, and a neat iPhone app.
Unfortunately, no good coffee stories to report from Taiwan.
