Coffee Talk May 11

Coffee who doesn't love a good cup!

We asked what your level of coffee knowledge is on the program and also for your coffee stories.

Here are some of the messages we received.


I hate drinking instant coffee, but at the office, it's the easiest way to drink it and cover it up with some milk. Recently got an aeropress for the house and love having it over the weekend. Next investment will be a Moka Pot to get a stronger espresso.

Brits love soluble! Europeans will by roast and ground :)

I found the best coffee in town at boon coffee in JLT and it's roasted in dubai and it's all

Apple's work just as good as coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker but I do drink it if I feel like I'm going to struggle staying awake during the day. - Saif

Hi. I heard that Apple juice has same effect as cup of coffee . Is it true ? 

I have a Story: once I was in the meeting in Marriott . I wanted masala tea. They asked chief to make one and it was one of the best teas I had . 

Well , no tea or coffee during Ramadan . So it's a bit struggle 

I am a regular coffee drinker and always seek good coffee in town recently i came across a great coffee at Boon Coffee definately worth checking out   Mike
