    I would like to know the best place to order coffee. I am 100% sure people conclude Kona cafe as the best. So I want to exclude it;)

    Kusafiri Coffee Shop in Animal Kingdom had the best cup of coffee I have had at Disney! However, not sure what will happen to the coffee shop with the closing/changes to Tusker House. :confused3 Just hope they keep it or relocate it!

    :coffee: Your in room coffee pot with your favorite brew from home. Unfortunately a good cup is hard to come by, although I'm really looking forward to trying that press pot at Kona next month!

    Your local 7-11 if you ask me. Not a good cup to be found in any parks. I did have a good cup at Wolfgang Puck Cafe (downstairs) and KONA was ok. I too go for the inroom pot and brew from home. Have fun!

    You at least buy some good bottled water if your going to do that, right? Not that Sparklets or Arrowhead junk, either. And then I would hope you bring a burr grinder with you. You make sure you pick up some beans that were just roasted right before you leave, correct? And then don't forget to bring your own Bunn coffee maker from home to replace the in-room coffee maker. Oh wait, never mind....:):) :)

    There are quite a few TS restaurants that serve a decent cup of coffee, but the only place that I really get excited about is the Kona Cafe and their pressed pot of Kona. :coffee:

    Here's my take on avoiding Nescafe and that industry-standard in room packaged stuff.

    Kona Cafe and Polynesian Coffee Bar - both serve a Kona Blend and Kona Cafe has 100% Kona in press pots.

    Artist Point has a signature blend served in press pots as well.

    Jiko has Kenya AA in press pots.

    Ghirardelli at DD serves Illy

    Virgin Megastore serves Seattle's Best (Starbucks)

    Bongo's take-out window has nice Cuban Coffee

    Flying Fish Cafe has their own blend as wel, just brewed though, no presses.

    I'm sure there's more, but those are my hot spots when I'm around and need a cup of joe.

    Puck's Cafe and Maya Grill have Illy.

    Cali Grille also has something other- could be Illy, not sure.

    Tangerine Cafe has some interesting Moroccan coffee with unusual flavorings.

    And we had Staples deliver Purified Water to the hotel.

    Boma offers the press pot too. It was delicious.

    I think so far I must be the ONLY DISer who can actually drink the Nescafe!!:rotfl: And I consider myself a coffee snob, choosing to drink only Kona blend at home...

    Thanks for the suggestions on some other good coffee spots! :thumbsup2

    I agree with others that all of the signature restaurants have very good coffee including FF. However, the last time we dined at FF late (last seating) the coffee was horrible. It had been "sitting" a while. :( I was so disappointed I told our server and he brewed a new pot. :)

    I like the lattes from the three coffee stands in Epcot...two at the entrance to the countries (Mexico and Canada) and one by the Ellen Degeneres ride
