In search of a decent cup of coffee

Graham’s latest from China

Here we are, two weeks into our Silk Road odyssey, well beyond the end of the Great Wall, and I’m gasping. Mind-blowing things to see, cultural treasures aplenty but a decent cappuccino is as rare as a Westerner in the Gobi desert; which is to say hardly at all.

I reckon there are a few things to sort out – the odd insurrection along the way, the price of visas into the Tajikistan and the other ‘stans’, the strangely garbled Chinese-English on signs and instructions. But most of all we need a generous supply of Colombian medium roast.
