♪ The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup ♪
Oh, yeah, easier said than done in Doha. We do have Folgers in Qatar, but I'm so tired of paying QR24 ($6.60) a can for the imported stuff. You can also get Maxwell House, but it's packaged somewhere on this side of the world and well, it's not good to the last drop like the commercial promises. I always tuck away several of the huge cans of Colombian coffee in my suitcase before heading back this way, but it doesn't last long. Brand name or store name works for me, as long as Juan Valdez is on the can I'm a happy camper. Well, Mr. Valdez must not be able to get a Visa to Qatar as he is pretty hard to come by these days. Alas, along comes Tchibo...the coffee that you can buy in Qatar for half the price, although it's made in Germany, it has the "Spirit of South America". What more could one want?
