A couple of weeks ago, a close friend woke me up quite early on a Friday (which is the first day of the weekend here) to accompany her for some sort of shopping about 3 emirates away. On our drive back to Dubai after our ‘unusual’ shopping experience, I remembered that I had received a breakfast invite at Günaydin Dubai, a special Turkish steakhouse. So I directed my good friend to the place and after locating the eatery, we were fast seated and ready to be served.

As for me, I’m really not a fan, but I know someone who can go through 20 cups of the beverage in a single day. Now that’s what I call addiction. From its potential discovery by the legendary Kaldi, an Ethiopian goat herder, to being celebrated internationally in October, coffee has grown to become a ritualistic lifestyle for many. But have you ever wondered if there was more to that delicious cup of joe you drank this morning? Lucky for you, the cool guys from Dubai’s newest specialty coffee offering, Drop Coffee, just agreed to share with us the marvels of coffee! Now you can rejoice while sipping on your favorite blend.
