Coffee, Wine, Tea....

As Ms. M get busier in work and business, she has stopped thinking about travel. A 3hour drive outside the city looks impossible.

When Mr. Q travels for work around some of the exotic places in the world, she gets to share some experiences. Most of them are in form of coffee, wine and teas.

Mr. Q is a coffee lover and that would imply that he brings home to Ms M the Arabica category of coffee. Robusta a big no-no!! The next day in the kitchen Ms M is brewing the coffee and preparing two hot cups of superior quality coffee. They discuss the taste, the smoothness and the experience...

Haitian Blue Coffee from a trip to South Africa. This unique blend is famously called "The Pearl from Carribbean" with its rare Arabica grown in Haiti. Just like the renowned Jamaican Blue Mountain blend, it gives you an exceptionally fine brew with a subtle floral note.

The Starbucks Italian roast from one of the travels to the USA. Connoisseurs of dark roasts love our Italian Roast for its sturdy, assertive flavor. More about it here

The Lavazza Espresso Italiano is a Italian coffee but bought from Paris.

If Mr. Q has got back from the East, different flavors of teas with varying colors, flavors and fragrances. A hot pot of tea and the couple love non-milk teas. The pics would be posted sooner...working on it

And wines, this aren't missed in the travel shopping list and its solely for home consumption. The connoisseurs cant share these precious drops on those wild-partying days. This is part of the romantic evening, front of the TV on the sofa with some good cheese or munchies. There are times when there is a bottle of liqueur being part of those good post dinner desserts.

The wines are usually the red, white wine hasnt been part of their dinners from a few years. If you wouldnt know, let me give a little information about the categories of wine. All types of wines fall into one of these categories: White Wine, Red Wine, Rose Wine, Sparkling Wine, (including Champagne), Dessert Wine, and Fortified Wine. To understand different type of wines, you can try this link

And this picture of one of the liqueur bottles consumed. These are alcoholic beverages flavored with fruits, herbs, cream etc. This one is chocolate flavored.

You should visit Mr. Q and Ms. M, experience the coffee, tea and wines..the global and the local too :)
