I wrote about my love affair with coffee today in my column, which has prompted many kind readers to send me tips that will get me even more obsessed and addicted. Here's some advice I got about buying coffee:
I have made the best coffee in one of the old fashioned "mangas" which is no more that a piece of cloth placed over a wire frame and the boiling hot water filtered over it.
The best coffee in the world is from Panama, hands down, no contest. The country has a very small production but it is top rate quality most of the best goes to Germany and Italy. Try the different brands, Café Ruiz, Café Eleta, Café Duran de Altura, all available in supermarkets here. Better yet come to Panama, drink it here and take some home.
Thanks for writing, Rita. And tell me more about mangas.
