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.

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