I've stood behind w'nkers who do that. Boils my piss. There should be a special queue for people who just want some filter coffee, aren't going to feck about topping up the app before they can pay and have anticipated being asked to pay for their order prior to being asked for the cash. :mad

I fully agree, thoroughly enjoyed them on my trip to India. Tried to recreate it at home with partial success. :o

My recreation:

- Pour milk (of the cow variety) in a pan.
- Split open three Yorkshire tea bags and add them to the milk.
- Let the milk boil.
- Pour the tea into a mug through a cafetiere filter
- Add sugar.
- Drink.

:D

The Starbucks I go to seems to double as an office for all the HR depts. of local companies to do their training & conduct interviews etc.

There was a group of about 20 of them doing health & safety training yesterday; I learnt all you need to know about blood types yesterday whilst downing my flat white.

A bit much when you just want to go for a bit of relaxing downtime.

Perhaps I should have got up and offered to hold the flipchart for the hapless girl who was running the session. She was getting somewhat flustered.

All your own fault, if you insist on going in Starbucks.

I wouldn't even want any of the staff to be seen in there. :eyes

Reminds me of a story a friend of mine once told me about a couple who went travelling in India.

Both were very fastidious about avoiding Delhi Belly & consequently they'd taken their own cutlery & various other utensils to use whilst sampling street food.

On arriving in Calcutta, they approached a chai wallah & thrust their clean plastic mugs at him before he had a chance to fill up the hepatitis ridden, cracked enamel numbers that they would otherwise have been offered.

He accepted and promptly proceeded to strain the tea through the filthy vest that he was wearing.

I had to laugh...

Glad to see the inclusion of the Yorkshire tea, however it should have spices in it too...

Well backpacking around southern India was a little different, they actually seem to like the Brits, but with early starts you get to see the cafes setting up. I seem to remember it went something like this:

Bring large cauldron of water to the boil.
Add a couple of packets of leaf tea (probably Assam as that's where it comes from and is dirt cheap)
Add several pints of whole milk and a couple of cans of condensed milk.
Add a heap of ground ginger.
Add a small heap of split cardamons.
Bring back to the boil.
Using a large fine sieve decant into jug and pour.

Don't they use condensed milk?

Not always, usually used as a sweetener, that given the amount of sugar used :eek:

There should be a special place reserved in hell for people who don't just want a filter coffee, but insist on fecking about topping up the app before they can pay and have anticipated being asked to pay for their order prior to being asked for the cash. :mad

And that is why we need a direct trade agreement with India NOW. That, and for their IT specialists.
