We get to the heart of the blossoming coffee culture and track down the best cups of high-quality coffee.

All Coffee(In)Touch cafes are carefully chosen by our panel of coffee experts, who pick out hidden gems and individual café features, then provide expert roundups.
Expert reviews constantly updated
In order to provide the up-to-the minute lowdown on the best coffee venues, we continually refresh our Coffee(In)Touch Guides databases as our experts re-review and search for the new. By evaluating using criteria like coffee quality, dessert quality, food quality and atmosphere, our experts are building up highly descriptive coffee maps of the most popular cities all around the world.

- Top 25 coffee houses chosen by experts and updated regularly in response to ratings and reviews.
