Best Coffee

Post by Duncan » Sat Aug 11, 2018 5:32 pm

I have only tried coffee a few times from the big sellers like Starbucks. Amazon. McDonalds and others.. and have never enjoyed one.
However I was in Malaysia in Nebong Tabal . way
up north. recently and in the early morning when everything was still closed. dying for a coffee. I sat down at a small side stall and had the best hot coffee I have ever had. And only cost 2.5 mr
It's not the first time that this has happen.
The big players have certainly got to learn something off the small players.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I much prefer the coffee at dirty little viet style coffee shops in a small glass with sweet milk to the fancy coffee shops with expensive coffee making machines.

Problem with those is that they add things like soy beans, corn and even ground up batteries.

I walk each day about 0530 and end up at a small mum and pop kerb restaurant on 51 off 108. I have a home brewed hot coffee with sweet milk. Great way to start the day then walk another 30 mins home. =@

Apart from instant coffee, I am very fond of Vietnamese coffee.
Water quenches the thirst, alcohol releases the truth.

I buy a nice lao arabica let a sweet girl grind the beans for me on the spot.
Then I make my own coffee with a french press and drink it on the balcony.
Use kulen water for the coffee.
