Coffee Beans on the Coffee Plan, Picture taken in Coorg
Let me make it clear first, I love tea. Coffee comes after it. But it was exciting to walk through coffee plantations in Coorg in December last year. The trip to Coorg was sponsored by Club Mahindra and I actually brought back two coffee beans thinking I would dry them and use them. But alas, such idea feel good only while you are away from home base. Back at home it soon boils down to routine.
Hot Coffee at Club Mahindra, Coorg
I had this coffee one evening at Club Mahindra, Coorg. The coffee in itself was quite good but the presentation was so eye catching that I had to take a picture. In fact, a colleague of mine from the Hotel school side once told me a story about the presentation of food at hotels. He used to work at a five star hotel and for breakfast buffet they had to worry a lot about presentation. For a 7.30 breakfast the preparations would start the previous night and the floral prsentation or the design of the fruit basket, or scons he told me, was more tricky than making the dishes itself. He said his shift manager would give them a real tough time over the decoration part. So, now whenever I see good presentation of food, I am aware of the hard work behind it!
