Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is the topmost of all devotees.
CC Antya 15.97, Translation and Purport:

"Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu is the topmost of all devotees. Sometimes, while walking on the beach, He would see a beautiful garden nearby and mistake it for the forest of Vṛndāvana. Thus He would be completely overwhelmed by ecstatic love of Kṛṣṇa and begin to chant the holy name and dance. His tongue worked incessantly as He chanted, "Kṛṣṇa! Kṛṣṇa!" Will He again become visible before the path of my eyes?"

This quotation is verse 6 from the first Caitanyāṣṭaka in Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī’s Stava-mālā.
