Today I just finished a bag of very special coffee I bought in Leeds last week. This coffee is from Yemen, on the Arabian peninsula and very few places sell coffee from that part of the world.
I've had this one three or four times over the past couple of years and the same thing happens every time. The first cup, from the freshly opened packet, tastes very strange indeed. So strange that the second cup tastes rather good. It's almost as if my taste buds couldn't cope with such an unpredictable coffee at first but then they remember the flavours and tell me it's good stuff.
Definitely my favourite, read about it here.
Perhaps it just suits my personality ...
