A leisurely lunch
a double espresso -
made with coffee beans
gathered from wild coffee trees
in Ethiopia and roasted locally -
in the courtyard
of a castle
in the countryside
only 40 miles
southeast of Vienna

Wie gern würde ich mit dir diesen doppelten Espresso trinken. Und dabei den Lavendelduft einatmen..."träum"ReplyDelete
I love that 1st photo! And by the way, I am waiting for christmas very much... :)ReplyDelete
We are kindred spirits... I have many, many photos of coffee cups (even one from Vienna) but none is more beautiful than this one. I love the color of that cup. Your words give a sense of how wonderful it tastes as well!ReplyDelete
Does wild bean coffee taste any different from domesticated bean coffee?ReplyDelete
ich wünscht' ich wäre wieder dort! :-)
honestly, Christmas can still wait a bit. ;-)
thank you! :-)
I can only refer what I have experienced: the coffee in that cup tasted like manna from heaven. Seriously, I remember having read that the wild coffee beans project gives work to the people in that part of Ethiopia and is also environmentally beneficial, no chemicals used, shade and cover for birds and other animals, something along that line.
here is a link to a study about "Wild Coffee Producation in Ethiopia":
Every day looks like a dream, there. Is it Vienna or your wonderful photography? It has to be both.ReplyDelete
I would like to be there right now!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Merisi for your nice compliments and comments on my blog. They are really appreciated. Feeling better but my head still is stuffed and feels like it is 2 sizes too big.ReplyDelete
I especially like your first shot. The composition just makes me feel good. Very pretty style of chair with the feathery flower arrangement.
Let us away to Merisi's world for a taste of elegance, beauty and the temptingist [sp] coffee in the whole world.ReplyDelete
It's all so lovely and elegant. I don't even drink much coffee, but could be tempted in Vienna.ReplyDelete
I used to be a dedicated tea drinker- buying all sorts of imports, then I became a dedicated coffee drinker, now, i just drink instant and people cannot stand the way I make it! lolReplyDelete
Guten Abend Merisi,ReplyDelete
I like when you propose us to follow you for drink a wiener coffee...
Nice Week in Wien !
You always find the most beautiful places to photograph. Simply gorgeous.ReplyDelete
thank you! :-)
me too! :-)
thank you, you always are an inspiration!
Hope you are feeling well again soon,
thank you! :-)
Your words reminds me of Charles Baudelaire's "Invitation au Voyage",
"Mon enfant, ma soeur, Songe à la douceur. D'aller là-bas vivre ensemble! Aimer à loisir, Aimer et mourir ... "
sorely tempted, that is! ;-)
it is hard to believe that a man of such fine taste like you
would descend into the bottom of an instant coffee jar! ;-)
I am still a dedicated tea drinker, a pot in the morning and one in the afternoon.
In between, one cup of really good coffee.
same to you, filled with joy! :-)
those places find me and there would be so many more if only I had the time!
I think I'd give just about anything for a cup of that gorgeous coffee you photographed so well.ReplyDelete
and then sipping it out in the garden, on a later summer day, in the shade. Ah, dreams! ;-)
