What kind of coffee do you drink?

16 May

I love coffee.

It’s one of the highlights of my day. Particularly filter coffee. Grinding the beans and then enjoying the smell of freshly ground coffee. It’s one of the few things i don’t rush when making which is quite rare since i rush through most of the things i do. I use french press because it provides the best taste and it’s also the most practical to use when making just one cup.

I also prefer to drink filter coffee all year round if possible, depending on where I am of course and whether the temperature allows for it. Cyprus has become a bit more filter coffee friendly in the past few years with it’s numerous coffee shops which is a good thing.

What about you?

    Apparently it’s possible to buy green beans in Cyprus and then roast to your own preference. Would love to try that.

      That sounds like a fantastic idea!

      Never thought about it and i was actually looking for other options to buy coffee beans from. I used to buy them from Coffee Direct/Time but now i get them from Starbucks.

      I will check what the requirements/demands are coffee roasting. Do you know of anyone who is selling green beans in Cyprus?

    According to Angloinfo, this website delivers to CY (http://www.algcoffee.co.uk/index.php?route=common/home). If you are up for some coffee roasting let me know and I’ll gladly split the cost.
