I was pleasantly suprised to see a Peet's Coffee in Shanghai a couple months ago. I didn't go in, though, because there are a lot of very good small gourmet coffee shops around the city.

Regarding coffee, one piece of advice to people: don't bother buying the "geisha" coffee in Shanghai. It's not authentic. Don't waste your money. (For those who don't know, geisha coffee is one of the most expensive, highest quality strains of coffee in the world. Unfortunately what's being advertised as geisha in Shanghai is not authentic.)

I don't drink a lot of coffee anymore because of my anxiety disorder.

How does geisha coffee taste? There are a handful of good, independent coffee shops in Shanghai, while the rest are no better than Starbucks. I'm no expert in coffee, so I am not sure how good/bad they are.

Geisha coffee is premium, it's amazingly delicious, it's smooth, has subtle flavors. Won't find better coffee in the world. It's worth trying at least once if you can afford it. Just be sure you're getting authentic geisha.
