The Coffee Saga

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

It's always good to have a laugh at Vlad's expense, great story with no puns. :thumb: In fact perhaps it was a conspiracy to prevent Vlad from posting any puns as he cannot function without his morning coffee. :coffee:

Hey Vlad, as a South African how do you have your coffee?
Black or superior?

Not at all, always preferred coffee like my women: black and strong.

I got turned on to filter coffee by a beautiful French lady by the name of Sophie, whose family ran Le Petit Paris, a cafe on Greenmarket Square in Cape town's CBD.

My favourite is either (French) Boncafe, which Hagar prepares perfectly, or Trung Nguyen, a Vietnamese brand
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

Yes, you must be right, Khmers are known for their brilliant listening skills.

Someone crapped in your dna? makes perfect sense now...

I like to think I speak Khmer at an upper intermediate level, can read and write at an intermediate level, have lived in Cambodia for 12 years, own a café manage my staff in Khmer, married to a Khmer and we communicate in Khmer...and sometimes it's hard for me to order at first go an "iced coffee with milk"
That phrase in Khmer is a bit of a tongue twister and a good test of your pronunciation.
