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.

Free Masks to be Distributed to Dustmen

Dustmen

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, many people had been affected by repercussions of the virus. For instance, have you guys put into mind that there are dustmen still roaming the streets trying to help clean areas for us as well as trying to make a living for themselves?

These poor people’s job is to stay in the streets, in the open air, where it could be very easy for them to catch the virus due to the lack of care and protection they have been given.

Which is why Mahmoud Shaarawy, Egypt’s Local Development Minister, has stressed this morning on how much of a necessity it is to provide these dustmen as well as blue-collared workers with the essential protective gear such as masks and gloves to help contain spreading the Coronavirus and to help keep these workers safe.

A new set of safety instructions as well as a major protective plan that will be directed by our President Abdel Fattah el Sisi is set in motion to take place, added the Minister.

Companies and Contractors have been demanded by governors to apply serious safety precautions and most importantly the correct care requirements for fellow workers as well as trying to raise awareness for the coronavirus.

Shaarawy has also stressed on how crucial it is to follow up with both the contractors and companies to make sure they are implementing the precautionary measures they are forced to apply on the workers. Also, they need to follow up on sterilizing as well as purifying the work sites they are asked to work in on a daily basis in hopes of achieving maximum protection and safety for the workers.

Thankfully, President Sisi has been kind and gracious enough to order protective masks to be distributed amongst all dustmen, janitors, and workers in need of protection to help keep them safe, thus our entire country in good hands.

So far, 139 new cases of the Coronavirus have been found. As for the death toll, it was announced last night that 15 new deaths have occurred. Egypt’s Ministry of Health has broadcasted that the number of infected Egyptian citizens are up to 1,699 and the death rate to 118 people. On the bright side, 348 people have recovered so far after testing positive for the virus.
