Japanese latte art…yes, in your coffee

From the country that imports 90 per cent of Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. But what does it taste like?

What’s crazy about this, apart from the Japanese, is that despite making the world’s best coffee, we don’t really feel to drink it here. Instead we have those Nescafe machines at gas stations.

But gradually we’re importing a coffee culture, with a number of coffee places opening up in New Kingston and uptown…because you can’t sport a Blackberry without an accompanying mini-thermos.

For instance the Cannonball CafĂ© chain is pretty good and offers wireless Internet and serves Old Tavern, the best coffee we’ve ever had.
