The World’s Best Coffee Shops

Venturing outside of your beloved local baristas can be difficult, especially when you’re stepping into completely new territory. When in a new country, a new city, or a new continent, unless you’re going on the advice of locals, the stress that comes along with knowing where and when to hit up the best coffee bars can be crippling. In its latest roundup, however, Jetsetter puts an end to all of that. Rounding up the world’s best coffee shops, the magazine takes the guesswork out of international travel and puts you face-to-face with your next coffee.

Kicking things off in Oslo, Jetsetter begins with Fuglen, a “den-like coffee shop” where can sample beans prepared by local roasters all while taking in the shops’ eclectic midcentury Scandinavian furniture (and yes, everything — even the furniture — is for sale). After hours, the coffee is switched out for bespoke cocktails and artisanal beers. In Paris, Jetsetter recommends Ob-La-Di, a charming micro café in the Haut Marais district that’s tucked between upscale boutiques. São Paulo’s Beluga Café in Santa Cecília boasts filter- and espresso-based drinks, all homegrown and roasted in Brazil. Cape Town’s Haas Coffee stocks some of the world’s most expensive coffee. Its rare gourmet blend of beans known as the kopi luwak begin at about $30 a cup.

London’s The Monocle Café calls a two-story building with a terrace home in Marylebone, and features coffee from Allpress, a hand-curated playlist featuring Monocle 24, the brand’s radio station, and a menu designed by Masayuki Hara.
