I am addicted to coffee and specifically to Nespresso Original coffee. My latest favorite is the ones from Zimbabwe (lungos)

This is from an email sent to me from Nespresso last December 31st. Girlfriend probably drank about 15 - 20 percent of it.

Bloody hell, are your hands still steady enough to shoot?

Many years ago I used to regularly have lunch with friends at a cafe near the office. The owner was Greek. He got to know us as regulars and used to offer us traditionaly made Greek coffee. One cup would leave you buzzing all day. Love it!

I have seen 63 countries in the World, and I drink coffee daily. I am coffee drinker.

But, my measuring yardstick is beer, not coffee.
And by that measurement, London pubs excel!

Well, pubs in England also excel in pub food. I spent a year in Oxford a very long time ago. I left 10 pounds heavier than when I arrived. Shepherd's pie and treacle tart with hot custard on top almost daily does that to you. :ROFLMAO:

Ten pounds in a year?? I recall one Summer that I worked in California rebuilding a trailerhouse. I started shortly after sunrise and worked til about 11AM, then resumed at 5PM til dark. My lunch consisted primarily of two quarts of beer and maybe a sandwich. I started the Summer at 150 and ended at 170. Fortunately I was able to get back down to 150 by Christmas.

I also love a coffee once, twice, three or four..... times a day.
The older I get the more I enjoy good coffee. This is a distinct departure from when I first started drinking coffee when I first started work in my late teens. It was instant coffee back then out of a tin and its sole purpose was to keep me awake.
Today we have coffee machine and all sorts of equipment to make a good brew.
Even when I am away in the bush I have been accused of being fancy because I took a Honda 2kva generator and espresso pod machine.
These images below are from my recent trip to the top of Australia on a camping trip with my son fishing and hunting. No more generator. We now use 2 X 100ah lithium batteries hooked up to a solar panel on the roof of the vehicle and an 2200 watt inverter to run the pod machine. Quiet, hot coffee anywhere anytime.

Couldn't resist, lol!

I guess I'm a bit less finicky than some. Even enjoy my own version of cowboy coffee. Btw, the trick is to just add to it. The old grounds are "Mother" and she is needed to complete the flavor. Only time she needs to go is if the pot hasn't been cooked for a day or more. 'Course, that might be why I also like flavored creamers.

Good coffee is often a product of the circumstances it's served in. Fresh in the morning looking at the sun coming up over elk camp always makes for a good cup of joe. Following an excellent meal is another time when coffee seems to always be good.

Sister brought me some beans from Honduras. THAT was some excellent brew. My brother is a coffee snob. His current method uses a glass carafe over the stove. Functions much like a percolator. Not sure what beans he uses in Bonaire, but his coffee is pretty good also.

Overkill,

You are supposed to be enjoying hunting and the simple things in life like camping

Most coffee is good coffee if you wake up in the bush.

Nothing wrong with getting a GOOD takeaway coffee as you travel when you know the good cafes. .

Of course if I were camped with you I would shut up and appreciate the coffee.

Is there a hunting report for that trip?

I don't recall seeing any mention of the Cover cat coffee. The one where the cats eat the beans and they roast the undigested beans found in the poop.

I'm sure it's just a gimmick but I read that the cats eat the best fruits or beans so they then figure these are the prime beans.

I did see it is served on Australia but it might cost several times what you might pay for a decent Cafe Coffee otherwise..

Actually, to add to this my Brother tried Old town coffee in Malaysia and we can buy the satchels at a supermarket.

Old Town is a Chain or Franchise he said. Something like Starbucks or Gloria Jean's.

That's about as fancy as what I take camping

NTH, Just found your message. I hunt with Eland Pro Safaris in Namibia. Wide selection of game and great folks. Hell my PH and his family ARE adopted family, LOL! I book people to hunt with them and should you be interested I'd be happy to meet and discuss a trip. Anyway all the best to you and give me a shout sometime. Bye for now.

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
