Today we woke to some very humid weather.
My friend, Emina, and I tried out a new restaurant this morning called Majnoon Qahwa which literally translates to Crazy Coffee.
The restaurant has a nice ambience with a beautiful blue decor.
Unfortunately, since I don't eat meat or dairy products, my food options are often quite limited, so I ordered zaatar manaeesh and a fruit salad (which I thought was very overpriced).
My coffee was a Brazilian pour-over blend.
Speaking of crazy coffee, yesterday, my friend, Melissa, whom I've know for about 17 years now, invited a couple of us over to her new diwiniya for breakfast.
Diwaniya means gathering place and traditionally was used by men but, of course, with time, everything evolves.
She recently visited Indonesia and brought back some of the most expensive coffee in the world.
If you've not heard of it, the civet cat eats whole Arabica coffee cherries, but only digests the outer layers surrounding the coffee bean. The fermented beans are then excreted, collected, separated, sun-dried, roasted and turned into coffee grounds.
The verdict: I've definitely had a much better cup of coffee, but now I can say that I've literally tried some very "shitty" coffee.
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
