Swedish term or phrase: ar ad alla jordiska drycker
phrase on a coffee pot made in Sweden
Fran
Coffee the best of all earthly potions is.
Explanation:
Now I know what you mean: "Kaffetåren den bästa är av alla jordiska drycker."
It is from an old Swedish song called "Kaffevisan", the coffee song. You can listen to it and see the text, maybe sing it (!??) at: http://hem.passagen.se/minata/visa_17_dec.html. Very nice melody.

or you could say:
"Coffee is the best of all earthly potions/beverages. "

"Coffee the best of all earthly potions is." is more poetic and oldfashioned.

"Av allt det goda, som man förtär,
bland alla jordiska drycker,
ju kaffetåren den bästa är:
den skingrar människans nycker;
den styrker kroppen, den livar själen,
den känns från hjässan, ja - ned i hälen!
Hå hå, ja ja! "

Must be a nice pot!
