A Stop for Coffee

We were downtown a few days ago and stopped in at the well-known coffee shop of Abdel Maboud.  Located right across from the Chamber of Commerce building, the shop had a line of shoppers looking for the perfect blend of beans.

There were at least a dozen varieties of beans behind the counter and a half-dozen people dispensing and grinding.  Most people were buying their coffee already finely ground with the intention of preparing the strong Turkish style of coffee.  I picked out a half-kilo of very rich looking dark beans.

At home, they ground into the blackest coffee that I have ever seen and make a superb morning brew.
