Do you know who imports more than 900 million pounds of coffee a year?
No it’s not France. No, not even the obsessed Argentines. Not even my favourite Vietnam.
Yes, it’s true. Apparently Japan imports more than 930 million pounds of it each year, which is more than France and less than Italy.
What does this have to do with travel? Well, sure you could ask, but that would mean you haven’t been to Turkey for their sticky and thick coffee that lines the cup.
Or to Vietnam when they fill the bottom of the cup, which turns out to be enough to keep you up through the night.
How about sipping in Cairo (when they’re not protesting) at one of the oldest cafes in Egypt? One where the Nobel Prize winning authors sit.
It’s a drink that keeps the world ticking and one that you will never be far from where ever you are. Sure there is tea, but coffee is my poison.
Of course, I am sad to say that my favourite is Starbucks. Yes, I have been around the world. I have tried coffee in lots of places, but my favourite coffee stop is Starbucks.
Plenty of caffeine in their regular coffee and the quality is guaranteed to some degree everywhere you go. Of course that can’t guarantee the Inca Bucks in Peru!
