coffee, tradition…

After two years, I broke my fast. Caffeine ran through my veins again. Do I regret it? No! My favourites: coconut coffee and ginseng coffee.

At Madu Pertiwi Agro Spices they make coffee the traditional way. Harvest the beans by hand, roast them by hand, grind them by hand. Impressive.

They also make luwak coffee. It was unclear if the luwaks are free-range or if the one in the cage does all the work šŸ˜¦ Hope he gets let out every day. Did I try the luwak coffee? Yes I did! Mellow, smooth and delicious.

This panorama of the view does it no justice at all. Vast expanse of lush green goodness for the soul.

I was blessed with a visit from UK friends living in Sydney who soon depart for other exotic shores and home. We packed many of the main tourist spots in and by Sunday night my leg muscles protested mightily.

Riverland is a great spot to take people for a bite to eat or a drink. Right by the river, under Federation Square.

It wasn’t too bad in the city but at St Kilda it blew a mighty gale. The kite surfers were out in force. No one got their wires tangled though. It was amazing to see how high over the water they flew sometimes.

While waiting to meet them on Sunday morning I took occasion to see what I could make of a vantage point of the Swanston Street bridge over the Yarra. Here’s some I like. As per usual, the devil’s in the detail…
