Espresso Yourself While Traveling-II
“Be a coffee-drinking individual-espresso yourself!”- This got to be the way in which an anonymous person chose to express himself in matters of coffee! What will your way of doing the exact same thing be?
I guess traveling your way towards the other corner of the world may be just about the proper way to start your espresso thing. Though I guess you may as well cappuccino yourself or Mocha yourself or whatever else you may feel like it gets to mach your tastes in matters of flavors and coffee flavors in particular…coffees served sip by sip or on the run at different cafes around the world.
The molecules of this beverage set control over your body and by simply stirring up your blood they get to cause a revolution inside you…After all it all most probably gets down to revolutionizing the inner you and lead you to the point when you will choose to say “I like my coffee strong not lethal!”
Either strong and black or soft and brown as you may prefer it, coffee holds a distinct, each time new fragrance in different places of this world. Would you be willing for example to wake up in Guatemala and have your coffee in what many consider to be a paradise for coffee lovers? If I succeeded in making you curious with respects to this destination, then keep your eyes wide open and read Coban. Once there, you’ll get the chance to not only drink the far fetched exotic yet whole distinct taste of coffee but also be the invited to assist the process of coffee making. All travelling brochures indicate that the best place to do this would be at a plantation known under the name of Finca Santa Margarita. Lucky you: you’ll get to be treated with an excellent coffee and get some with you home if only in samples!
How about Costa Rica? Your answer to this may be either an ironic question sounding more like “Yeah, what about it?” or you may be saying…”Can’t wait to get there!” I have never been there so far yet I heard that once there you may as well allow your body to be woken up by an excellent coffee. While you start seeing something with your left eye and afterwards with your right eye, notice that right in front of you there happen to be entire forests of coffee! And what a magnificent view! Why not be the one to rejoice this view and fill your lungs with the smell of fresh coffee?
You’ve all probably heard about the legendary Clark Gable by now (I know not though if he heard about us). He was the one who once said Ï never laugh until I’ve had my coffee.” Thus, you may have your own personal array of things that make you laugh and if coffee gets to be one of them, then you’d better embark upon the coffee adventure.
Yet, in matters of coffee Italians seem to beat just about any other taste. La Bella Italia enchants the papillae of whomever steps inside its boundaries by making them taste an Espresso or perhaps a Cappuccino, as they may prefer…If guided by an Italian friend and being rather inquisitive in coffee matters you may end up being told that there, in beautiful Italy there come to be “more cafes than citizens”. It is no wonder he got to this conclusion since there are so many, but so many type of coffee to be tried there! Your coffee tasting pilgrimage in Italy may start with an espresso (though not advised because once you’ve had that strong coffee going down your throat you’ll feel like there gets to be no need whatsoever to try anything else. Enough strength there to just quench your thirst for coffee or appetite for coffee as the case may be!). You may afterwards wish to try a caffe freddo or a Caffe con panna, a latte macchiato or if you wish to sort of tranquilize and awake your senses at the same time a caffe corretto. This last one not only that gets to be “correct” or right but it will also include in its body some strong grappa. I could paraphrase a well known saying now and say “In grappa verita.” Yet this verita gets to be applied while standing up, because so I’ve heard, in Italy coffee gets to be an espresso on purpose…to be taken away or consumed in two gulps always on the run.
Away from Italy, in Turkey coffee turns out to be a more refined beverage, one over which one should not feel guilty to linger. As a Turkish proverb tells us, coffee should be “as black as hell, as strong as death and as sweet as love.” Black it is, strong it is and sweet it may be nowhere else but in Turkey!
Travelling coffee you may as well be introduced to the various coffee rituals existing around the world. Either café au lait in France with a croissant, caffe de la olla in Mexico or an espresso in Italy, coffee never got old-fashioned along the years and still continues to make waves, sometimes milky ones, sometimes foamy ones, in the world. If only to wake us up and it completes its task efficiently!
If it were for me I’d probably start my day, each new day of my life with the words once uttered by an unknown person. Here are these words: “Rising Sun detected: (A)nother coffee, (C)old shower, (S)leep?” As long as that coffee gets to be served in another corner of the world I am willing to try the coffee variant or (A)nother variant. Aren’t you? Bring Costa Rica, Brazil, Italy, Panama, Guatemala, Indonesia, France and whatever other country associated with the unique taste of coffee in my morning and I shall orchestrate this multitude of flavors just perfectly. You may do the same!
Meanwhile something is missing from my morning program and I work with some errors, one of these errors certainly happening to be “Caffeine Allocation Error: COFFEE.SYS missing, Programmer halted.”11
