Image taken at a Hong Kong-style cafe, in Singapore. It seems this is how coffee is served in HK, in a tall glass, with the sugar on the side, placed in a small dish normally used for soy sauce and chilli.
It's amazing how coffee has become the universal breakfast drink. For some people, this - minus the sugar and polka dots - is all they need to start the day.
Some need more. I once came acorss a t-shirt with the slogan "Six in the morning" and the illustration shows SIX cups of coffee. LOL!
I have a friend who goes for McDonalds breakfast, with free coffee refills, and drinks five cups. Almost there.
BTW My favourite coffee is currently Legendee, from the Vietnamese company, Trung Nguyen. This is coffee from beans that have been eaten by some kind of civet cat or weasel or whatever, and then passed out in its excrement. It may sound yukky, but is delicious.
The "best" is apparently Kopi Luwak from Indonesia, but the Vietnamese version is cheaper and more readily available.
It costs S$9.50 (approx US$7) for a small cup at Trung Nguyen, but I buy the powder at S$22.50 for 250 grams, enough to make me approx 40 cups at home. I think I will go make myself one now :D
