Gotta be Central America, kids. Nic, Guat, Panama, Costa Rica...

They have more ways to skin a coffeepot over there than all the other coffeebeings put together. Uh, IMHO.

I had my first really good coffee in Brazil and have had 2 wives from there( NOT a polygamist, separate marriages), so I gotta go with Brazil.

I will go with Costa Rica. I do not think I have found a bean from there that I didn't like.

I'd have to go with Brazil, it's versatility is unmatched I think amongst the other coffees. Use it as a base for espresso, base for drip blend etc.

I love Kenya, but am still experiment with blends so that it has some body... too thin on its own. I like most of the african coffees.

Single bean, too hard to pick. My usual blend (home roasted) is about 70% nicaraguan and 30% costa rican. Take the nicaraguan just past the first crack and the costa rican to just after the second. The flavors combine quite nicely!

Suprisingly, to me anyway, is that good ol Australia (oi oi oi) grows a decent bean themselves. Queensland beans, that is.
