Default I want my Coffee and to Drink it

Any coffee fiends out there...I love coffee but am sick of the old gold blend..

I am thinking of buying one of those expresso/cappuccino makers..

Where is your favorite bean located? I like a dark Kenyan myself..

Is there a Wittards or similar here to buy the beans. I have an electric grinder and a cafeteria...

You can get a good selection of beans at Gloria Jeans. I have one in my office, which is most convenient! But I think you get them in most of the malls too. I think Starbucks also sell beans and they're supposed to be ethically sourced.

Why not ask Madam Medusa nicely and she may bring you back some from her up-coming Mount Kenya safari trip? Personally, although I do have a preference for Kenyan women, its the Colombian coffee I like the best...mind you, their women are pretty hot too.

Funny you should talk about Coffee... This guy is doing a review of the "Five best coffee shops" as published by Abu Dhabi Week. Pretty funny reading, actually. www.abudhabilist.com.
