The best coffee in Namibia!

Every time I go back to Fresh N Wild, that little oasis of calm and relaxed sophistication in Windhoek, Namibia, I discover a new delight.

This time around, it's the quality of the coffee.

I popped in for a quick breakfast and ordered an espresso with my breakfast, and had a very pleasant surprise when it was delivered to my table.

Yes, it was overly topped up to the rim (there seems to be a thinking in Africa that more is better, but in the case of espresso, less is really more ... next time try pouring only half an espresso cup for a more intense flavour), but it did sport a thick and rich crema, with an aromatic cocoa-like fragrance.

And when I sipped at it cautiously, worrying that this coffee might well be the proverbial mutton dressed up as lamb (I've had way too many over-diluted, weak coffees), I was again pleasantly surprised with the thickness of brew.

The clincher was the flavour - a pleasantly complex flavour of coffee-cocoa ending in a hint of lemony citrus notes.  Wow!

Well done Fresh N Wild: officially the best coffee in Namibia!

  4. vWhen it comes to the very best coffees on the globe, I visited the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) for research. Those are the organization that sets the product quality standards for specialty coffee, which everyone calls "gourmet" coffee. All specialty coffees use arabica beans.

  5.  The City is a global leader in the progressive, third-wave coffee movement - a movement that aims to produce high-quality coffee as an artisanal product, like craft beer or wine. These are the best of the best.
