already said liao, most people here are just posing but know shiate.

TS can clarify your question?

The coffee plant originates from Africa.

2 main types are used: Arabica and Robusta

But coffee can be grown in different places, and can be roasted by different countries.

Africa arabica compare to brazillian arabica...got difference?
Usually got slightly different notes, but which one is "better" is usually a matter of personal preference. Sometimes is more due to the different processing techniques in both countries rather than the strain/climate itself.

From source, harvesting, roasting till barista's extraction skills... so many factors that can affect your final cup of coffee...

In some cases, a well done Robusta can turn out better than Arabica...

Nicest is subjective actually, and nobody can very much guarantee you that region A taste nicer than region B. It's like asking if KPop is nicer than JPop, or vice versa.

But if you ask me personally, I tend to like Columbian coffee blends.

nowadays the trend is kenyan drip cold brew that they put in glass bottle and keep overnight then sell at a premium. taste wise not that bad at all but price is terribly inflated like those days when the pour over gooseneck crap sold for 6-8 bucks per cup when hipster cafes were popular.

Unfortunately a lot of the Kopi Luwak you see (even in Indonesia) tend to be caged, which are inferior to wild and of course cruel. You don't get the critters to choose the berries unlike in the wild. Not worth the money also coz very high chance you don't get the supposed quality you pay for.

That said, no need pay so much, coz Kopi Luwak is something subjective, and not all can appreciate even the real wild stuff. A good approximation is to go try Trung Nguyen's Legendee, which is synthetic Kopi Luwak made using an enzyme soak.

Any kind of coffee should be either arabica or robusta, or a blend of the two.

May come from different regions but is essentially either type. Cannot tell from pic what those really are.
Quote for truth. Arabica or Robusta.
