Coffee time

6 07 2009

Its been a few days since a post as I’ve been more than busy enough (amazing but true).

So, its time for a coffee break!

First, a nice espreesso. In Shanghai no less. Delicious.

Illy Coffee, Shanghai style

But, where does this bean I so love come from? This is coffee, straight from the plant, drying out in the sun, in this case in Laos.

Coffee cherries, Lao style

The farmers take these cherries and process them. Not in a factory but on the side of the road. (Vietnam in this case)

Then, its off for sale in the local markets. (Laos again)

Geez, now I feel like a coffee, vietnamese style I think.

Of course, but thats for another day, when I actually have my camera with me.

The vietnamese coffee I had on the weekend during the Taebaek Foreign Food Festival was delicious. Nothing like Vietnamese, Cambodian and Chinese food in downtown Taebaek. Shame I didn’t have my camera 😦
