The QiRanger Adventures


with one comment

It’s no secret that I love coffee. It’s a passion of mine that dates back to my undergrad days. In the last year, I’ve become quite spoiled with the plethera of good coffee places around my home and the nice roasts I can purchase at local markets.

Asia is not the place for coffee lovers. I have yet to find a place that can make good coffee. I know that makes me sound like a snob, but I know what tastes good and what doesn’t. Now that doesn’t mean that I’m not drinking the watered down stuff… I’m just not enjoying it… as much.

I was able to find one Starbucks today at E-Mart. But hell if I’m going to pay $4.30 for a Grande cup of coffee that is $2 back in the US or when I can get a half-way decent cup at Dunkin’ Donuts for $2.80.

One thing I did find strange on my walking trips today was this:

It’s a normal coffee press you can pick up in the States for about $25 or less. Here it’s going for almost $32. Talk about one hell of an import tax!

Now all this coffee talk is making me thirsty to use one of my two presses here. I think I’ll make some right now…
