This week’s featured blogpost about Nescafé is an old acquaintance. Not personally, but a blog I have visited before. It’s Cecile Cinco and her recycling talents. I’m really amazed at what she does to her Nescafé sachets. Now I wonder,

Addiction. Before: Starbucks. Now: Nescafé.

It’s Friday and time for my “this week’s blog post about Nescafé”. I must admit that I was a bit lazy today. This is not some post I dug up from the Internet myself, but it came to me this morning, as a comment on my previous post. And going back to the website mentioned in the comment I found a post written by Tony and Jocelyn, two American expatriates in Qatar. Here they describe the pains of not getting your daily caffeine fix in a country where during the month of Ramadan all Starbucks coffee shops are closed. What do you do?

Instant coffee sachets mean instant garbage. Did I say garbage? Not necessarily, because you can recycle your Nescafe sachets, and I don’t mean by sorting you garbage in recyclables and non-recyclables and collecting your sachets in a special box. In fact, as incredible as it sounds, you can indeed put your sachets to use again. Cecile Cinco does, and I find it quite amazing what she manages to do with her Nescafe sachets.

It was terribly sweet and artificial. Yuk! Some time later I found it in the shops here in Norway too, but to my surprise the sweet taste was much more refined. The same goes for Pepsi Max with Lemon. Disgustingly artificial in the US, but much more balanced here. How come?

How to learn Indonesian…

11collection_3

I owe much of my coffee addiction to kopi Nescafe from Indonesia, but I have a penchant not only for Indonesian Nescafe but also for Indonesian language, since  I spend all my holidays there.  And the best way to get to know a country is to speak with the people I meet on the street and the only way to do that is by learning the language first.
