Where is the best coffee in the world?
#11
In my travels to Colombia and Venezuela I enjoyed some very good coffee, expertly brewed by people that take a lot of pride in their national drink. I have also been to the big island Hawaii in Kona, and I have to say the Mountain Thunder Plantation has the best organic coffee, grown, harvested, roasted and brewed right on the farm. You can't touch that...well you can for a price ranging from $32 to $46 USD per pound.

If you're in Hawaii, take the tour.

Mine too. They have some less expensive coffees, and of course we could drink it free at the visitor center.

my brother used to live in Hawaii and it was expensive to live there, even that long ago. He used to call me and say call me back because it was so expensive. The phone calls went through a switchboard so however long it took for them to connect the call and as expensive as calls were then (before cell phones, smart phones, iphones, etc.), he said he would rather send the money for me to call him back (of course, I never asked him to do that) and honestly, I would love it if I could talk to him now but that is another story in itself and for another forum.

qahwa bidun sukar, espresso, or the coffee in my own kitchen... who else would prepare it exactly like I want it best Wink I buy organic beans locally roasted with the date on it. Always this weeks roasting. I grind it daily and brew it on the sturdy side. I use a melitta drip, or a french press, or i make it texas style, or I break out my briki.

obviously.... i love me some good coffee Big Grin

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

you put coffee and water in a pan over a campfire (or a gas stove if youre not camping...) and bring it to an almost boil, then let it stand a bit. pour into cups like you would turkish, but the grind is coarser and the cups are humongous rather than dainty Big Grin.

The Italians get it - nobody else really makes a good coffee in Europe.

Don't confuse longevity with quality. The Americans have been drinking dreadful stuff for hundreds of years - doesn't mean it's any good! (It's not). Australia has had the opportunity of experiencing the coffee cultures from around the world, selecting the best, and developing our own variations.

Time you came back, I think.

hmmm.....I think anyone camping would have to make it that way unless they go to an RV park or campsite that provides electricity.

I don't want to get started on Texas so I will zip it up now.....thanks for the explanation. I have been told that cooking on a gas stove makes the food better. I can't remember what it is about gas that makes the food better. There are very few neighborhoods where we live that have gas piped in the houses. My inlaws have a fireplace and they had propane piped in to the house so they could run the fireplace that way. I guess they got tired of how much it took to clean it out, etc.

Currently scheduled to be in Perth in two year's time to teach for a month (I get booked waaaaaay in advance for my services - I have teaching gigs and conferences on my books for five years from now). Looking forward to it, and seeing some of my old mates.
