It’s no secret that the single most important thing in Tawny and my life is coffee. That might be an exaggeration, but I’m unwilling to discuss it until after my Starbucks run. A lot of people ask us if we’ve ever encountered hardships while traveling. They ask us if being in Thailand during the Red Shirt protests was difficult, or if the Pakistani border was tough on the nerves, “surely hitch-hiking across South Africa had you at your wit’s end?!” No. You want to know difficult? We drove from Virginia to Kansas and never once found a cup of coffee. Sweet tea? That’s not coffee my friends.
We almost died.
With such passion for the caffeine gods welling in our veins it should come as no surprise that we are about to launch a new series in which we devote our selves with academic zeal to the coffee cultures of the world. Whether we’re sipping civet coffee, fresh from the butt, or sampling espresso with Italian models, rest assured we will find your fix. Here’s a quick shot of what we have in store.
So whether we are discussing Italian vs. Seattle coffee or just praising the magic elixir that is java, please keep your eyes open. And, do tell,
What do you think is the best coffee in the world?
