Question: Why is there such a big gap between the quality of cafe coffee in Europe and North America!?
I've live in and visited Europe and find the average cup of coffee in Europe (in most countries in Europe) is significantly better than most of what I get in North America!.

Why are North Americans so eager to dring bad coffee on a daily basis!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I am not a coffee drinker, nor have I been to Europe, but I have known several people who agree with this!. But the biggest complainers aren't the European friends, but the Middle Eastern and South American friends who seem to complain the most!. They complain that although you get a huge amount of coffee when you order, it is not of a high quality, Isn't that the American way, quantity over quality!. Bigger cars, bigger food, bigger people, bigger coffee!. But none is really quality, and most tend not to even notice!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Preferences are different!.
The classic American blend of coffee is typically an Arabica bean medium roasted!. The medium roast increases the sweetness of the taste, cuts down on the harshness of a dark roast and boasts a minimal acidic level!.
European roast refers to an espresso roast where the beans are roasted specifically for an espresso, which are then used in cafe au lait, espresso shots, frappucinos and other coffee drinks!. This is a very strong coffee, reflected in the taste!.
I don't think cafe culture in the USA is bad/poor, just quite different than that found in Europe!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I dont think that americans want to drink bad coffee!.!. they are just looking for something that is cheap!.!.!. and will get there day going!.!. because they are tired and need a boost!.!.!. soo it doesnt matter about the quality of coffee it just matters that it wakes you up!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
