A true coffee sensation

Published

on

If you’re a true coffee lover, and you know it when the aroma tickles your soul, the taste inflames your brain, and the ecstasy revives your being, then you need to pay a visit to” 30 North”.

It’s an up modern cozy place; a new Egyptian experience that indulges you in a variety of coffee beans. Tastes from all over the world are brought to your cup, whether it’s a Mexican Altura, a Ugandan Kilimanjaro or a Peruvian Chancamayo; a light roast or a medium roast, you’ll definitely find your match. Not only you get to choose your favorite coffee, you also get to choose how you like it done.  This urban place offers different choices of coffee and rich snacks

Let me share my experience with you. First entered, I met a very tempting deserts display then the coffee station. The waiter welcomed us warmly, and explained very carefully each type of coffee they serve and also all methods they have for processing coffee weather its V60, Aeropress, or Chemex.  He was very friendly, patient and well acquainted with what he’s selling. We got to smell and taste coffee before we make our order.

I was seated at a marvelous wooden table with wooden chairs that looked as if they were just cut from the tree, which added a natural aspect in opposition to the grey cement urban walls.  I got the menu and made the order.

First, we got a welcome bread basket with a genuine vegetable dip; more of sweet pepper, tomato and eggplant mix. The smell, and the taste of the fresh baked bread promised a good meal to come ahead, and my guess was true.

I started my day with chicken tempura sandwich. Oh my god! Chicken in the morning?! I thought so, but it’s really worth it: fresh finely marinated chicken tempura with caramelized onions, special souse and greens. It was just the right light taste- suitable for breakfast- not greasy not heavy.  It’s served with homemade chips, just to finish the taste. Afterwards, I definitely needed to sweeten my tongue before facing a new working day.  The answer was Neutella- fluffy- pancakes covered in snow sugar and strawberries. Could I ask for more? All topped with the taste of fresh brewed aeropress Ethiopia coffee.

My friend ordered mix cheese in brown Panini sandwich. Yummy cheese mix with special spread in freshly baked bread but missed some greens. She asked for it, and she got a plate of rocca, cherry tomatoes and fresh mushrooms. For desert, my friend had a large blueberry macaroon, Oh Wow! Crispy from outside, gooey from inside filled with jam and some white spread, a bit like a creamy cheese, the sugar taste was just perfect. Her experience wouldn’t have been a true extravaganza without a cup of Chemex Ethiopia. Though Chemex,which is the process of making coffee through high filtration, I found that it gives very clear coffee but it somehow the coffee taste is not as strong as it should be.

All in all, weather you are longing for a distinguished breakfast or you just need a supreme getaway during your coffee break, this is the place. 30 North is a true coffee sensation.
