Every Wellingtonian knows the capital has some of the best coffee in the world, but now the rest of the world know it too.

CNN has published a list of eight of the world's great coffee cities.

What's your favourite coffee and Wellington cafe? Or is it elsewhere in the world? Leave a comment below.

Naturally, Melbourne, Rome, Vienna, Singapore and Seattle were also mentioned.

Reykjavik, Iceland, may be a wildcard, although apparently after the Dutch, Scandinavians have the highest coffee consumption per capita in the world. (New Zealand ranks 15th, with an average of 0.9 cups a day).

Memphis Belle, Flight Coffee's The Hanger, and Lamason Brew Bar were CNN's top coffee spots in Wellington.
