After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.

Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.

Algiers coffee

edited June 2014 in Cafe reviews
Spending 3 days in North Africa , and just had another try of espresso in Algeria.

Drinkable, but only just...    Extremely dark roast, bitter. Tastes a bit like a cheap robusta.

The large silver bowl in front of the four group Conti lever was full of pre-ground or maybe even instant coffee...  Mmmm

Every cafe I've been into has a three group lever.  Most seem to be from the 80's, a locally made machine called 'Arabica'.

Algeria is a huge consumer of coffee, almost all served as espresso.  As far as I know, not much if any is grown locally.
