Since I travel to Indonesia quite frequently, my coffee experience has completely changed. A handbrewed pure arabica often doesn’t require milk or sugar, in the contrary any additional ingredients disturb the unique taste of it. A while back I had my first cup of siphon brewed pur arabica in Jakarta’s DJournal coffee shops and that has been a real wow and eye opener. Since then I am struggling with any other coffee quality and brewing method including my formerly beloved Aluminum capsule based … you know what I mean.
Recently I discovered in Dubai the Raw Coffee Company which specilaized in importing, roasting and selling pur Arabica’s, mainly from Ethiopia. If you find your way to their warehouse in the industrial area Al Quoz, you will be able to enjoy the ceremony of a siphon coffee being brewed on your table with some great explanations from the friendly and knowledgeable stuff about the process and the coffee being used. – I will be back for sure.
