Jafa kafa

10 Dec

During my recent visit to Serbia my mother asked me to go together with her and sis to Belgrade for a walk and some shopping. So we stopped by hotel Moskva to relax and drink coffee. Actually I don't drink coffee every day, just on some occasions. Me and sis ordered jafa coffee, which was excellent, and mom had Turkish coffee. I like very much the džezva which is a pot designed specifically to make Turkish coffee. This one looks more traditional than the ones we own.

In the evening we took the bus to go home. It was very crowded but that is something I am familiar with. Half way home the buses started to empty and we finally could sit down. I sat down next to one young woman. I noticed she is looking at me way too long. I looked back at her but I didn't recognize her. Then after a few minutes she addressed to me "Oh Hi Mira! How are you? What are you doing.." I was confused and I said to her that I am sorry but I don't recognized her. She said her name. We went together to primary school. That was 15 years ago. She recognized my voice. Later while talking with her I started to recognized the traces of her face and voice. It's been so long time. It was unexpected but nice meeting.
Later that evening when we were home I kept asking my parents how much did I change since then 😀

    Kafa…. Ever since we spent all the coffee I brought to Canada, we were trying to find something similar. There is some Greek brand that could be bought in an Iranian shop :left: but something is wrong with taste. It is not bad but….. Now I buy coffee beans and grind them myself, coffee is stronger but taste better 😀 :coffee:I know this is off topic but I just couldn't resist. Next time I go to Serbia I will bring few kilos back :devil:

    Hotel Moskva has the best jafa coffee in town 😀 I don't like meeting my old 'friends' from school, it's always too hard for me to pretend how I'm happy for seeing them, there are actually only a few people from my old schools that I enjoy meeting with… I think you haven't change too much as far as I can say from that old picture of you that you have on your blog…

    Aadil, here in Canada I can't find anything similar – except something from Greece, but it didn't taste the same – now we buy coffee beans and grind it ourselves :chef:
