Buy Me a Coffee

Every coffee has a story and “Buy Me a Coffee” is my story from around the world. As a world traveler, I love to drink coffee in almost every destination I visit. I often buy a coffee in a new country and I have documented most of my coffee pictures which I am sharing for the first time on my website. Please read till the end and take a look at my coffee pictures in different locations.

La Casa Del Caffe – Rome, Italy

Let’s start with “La Casa Del Caffe”. If you’re a fan of “La Casa De Papel” like me then this is your place to drink a coffee. I’ve been to Italy many times and it is one of my favorite countries to visit. Italian coffee is the best but never tell a Starbucks coffee lover about Italian coffee.

“La Casa Del Caffe” is located in Rome, Italy and it is very near to the Pantheon in Rome. Don’t miss it.

Rhinefield House Hotel, Brockenhurst, Hampshire in England.

Well, if you’re in England then you should definitely start with English Tea. When I visited the Rhinefield House Hotel in England, We started a conversation over English Tea. It has beautiful surroundings and Gothic architecture which makes Rhinefield the most perfect country hotel in the New Forest.

Mysterious Stonehenge, England

Mysterious coffee in the mysterious Stonehenge. I’ve been to Stonehenge more than 20 times and had a coffee couple of times as I mostly drink a coffee in Salisbury after visiting the English Heritage. On this particular day, the driver gifted me with a mysterious coin and told me that I can exchange it for a coffee. Well, it worked, and thanks to the bus driver. People in England are very friendly and I like the British accent. I never had a British Visa on my Indian passport. Mysterious, isn’t it?

French Coffee: 1. Marseille 2. Deauville 3. Casis

Table decoration in France is often elegant and I didn’t miss the opportunity to take a picture. The first photo is from Marseille, France. I needed wifi and as a result, I ended up with a beautiful coffee. This is not a hack but most restaurants give wifi password after buying a coffee. Some cafeteria change password every week.

The second picture is from Deauville, in the Normandy region of France. This place is for the wealthy and horse lovers. Deauville is known for its horse culture internationally, it also has famous tracks, Yearling sales, and its multiple groups one annual races. There are two famous tracks and they are, Deauville la Touques and Clairefontaine. The Deauville American Film Festival takes place here and it is a yearly film festival devoted to American cinema, annually taking place since 1975. I had a coffee sitting in front of the horse riding farm. I wanna do it one day.

The third picture is from Cassis in Southern France. It is a small attractive town and no tour buses were allowed to enter and hence we took a road train to enter the town. It is very beautiful and perfect to enjoy the summer in France. I walked around the town and made beautiful pictures. My day was not complete and ended up drinking hot chocolate. It was very delicious.

Lisbon, Portugal

I always feel like home when I am in Portugal. I was born to Portuguese – Goan parents and Portuguese was the first foreign language I was learning from my parents. They are not living but I still remember what I have learned. Every time I visit Portugal, I use the little bit of Portuguese that I know. Locals in Portugal are delighted when I greet them in Portuguese. In Lisbon, I visited a cafeteria, and over there I had coffee and some snacks with my friend. At the time of bill payment, I was surprised to see the total amount I had to pay. It was less than 3 Euros. Wow!!

Doha, Qatar

On my very first day in the city of Doha in Qatar. I took a walk around and I met two locals. I greeted them nicely and they asked me if I would like to join them. I sat gladly and in return, I asked if I can take photos of them. They agreed and I made a couple of photos. I immediately transferred the photos from the camera to my iPhone and sent it to them via Airdrop. They were very happy with the photos and asked me if I wish to eat or drink. I saw the menu and I ordered something I had never before. It was “Coffee with nuts“, absolutely delicious. After a while, those two guys had to leave and we said goodbye with a selfie. I continued drinking my coffee and since it was hot, I decided to take it with me and continue my walk. Before leaving I called the waiter and asked for the bill. He said it is already paid and I was surprised. What a wonderful experience in Qatar.

Amsterdam Cafe – Oslo, Norway

Coffee shops in Amsterdam don’t serve coffee. I hope you know why. If not write me a comment and I’ll write a blog why not. However when I was in Oslo, Norway, I saw this Amsterdam Cafe and I couldn’t resist going inside. Norway is one of the expensive countries and I wouldn’t be surprised to know the coffee price. I had enough money for a coffee and it cannot cost me a fortune. When I saw the menu it did not have the type of coffee I wanted. Well, I was looking for “Latte Macchiato”. The owner was very nice and he said he can make me a “Latte Macchiato” although it’s not on the menu and it was very beautiful. While I was drinking coffee we were talking and he told me his travel stories from around the world and some were scary and in the end, turned out to be funny. As a Netherland boy, he liked adventure and when he met his soul mate from Norway he decided to stay in Norway. When I go to Oslo, I will definitely visit this place again.

Yes you got it right. Don’t forget to buy me a coffee.

Amigos over a coffee in Lisbon, Portugal

Coffee can make new friends around the world. I’ve been to Portugal many times and this time I went to “Fabrica Coffee Roasters” in Lisbon. The service here was amazing and the staff was very friendly. I not only enjoyed the coffee but also my new company over a coffee. I definitely recommend this place to you.

The Coffee Cat – Almere, The Netherlands

Have you ever had a coffee with cats? Well, I paid to have coffee with cats in the Netherlands. The Coffee Cat cafe has two-door before you enter. I opened one and closed it before opening the other door. Cats safety first. The cats here are very fluffy and around my table, one chair was already occupied and we could say anything. This place is highly recommended to all the cat lovers and yes the coffee was great and amazing cats.

Nini Design Centre – Funchal, Madeira

I like to try unique places for a coffee and on the island of Portugal, I went to Nini Design Centre which is located in the city of Funchal at the emblematic building known locally as “Molhe” – Fortaleza da Nossa Senhora da Conceição, which was once the home of Gonçalves Zarco, an old Portuguese sea navigator and colonizer of the Archipelago of Madeira. The view is beautiful from the top and having a coffee here was very relaxing.

Manama, Bahrain

Manama is the capital and the largest city of Bahrain. 1 Bahraini Dinar equals 2.65 USD and for 1 Dinar I can buy 5 coffees approximately in the local market. Most people who work in Bahrain are Indian and I could speak Hindi in most of the places. I decided to have a coffee on my last visit to Bahrain after taking a walk along the roadside. Visiting this country was indeed important to count another country.

Funchal, Madeira

“Patio Das Babosas” is located on the mountain top in Madeira. When I first took the cable car to go on the mountain top I found this place and I decided to sit for a coffee and the service was absolutely amazing and coffee was served with milk separate and a delicious piece of cake which I ordered along with the coffee. I loved this place so much that I even told the waiter I will visit again next week. So the second time I took a local bus and went on top of the mountain to visit and what was surprising is that the waiter remembered me and asked me which cake I want to try this time. Absolutely amazing.

Poema del Mar, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

“Poema del Mar” is an exquisite aquarium on the island of Spain. The entry fee is 25 Euros for a person. However, I had the privilege to enter the aquarium for free. They serve coffee at the entrance as well as inside the aquarium in the restaurant. WiFi is very fast here. What a great way to start the day with a coffee. The Canary Islands is very far from Spain and near to Africa. I often asked myself whether I’m in Spain or Africa?

Tenerife, Canary Islands

Here comes the interesting part. After drinking a lot of coffee and sometimes three times a day. I finally decided not to drink coffee in the month of February and exactly after 28 days I had my first coffee in Tenerife, Canary Islands. My friends were amazed to know my story and I believe you as well. It’s not easy to spend a month without a coffee but with dedication it’s possible.

Muscat, Oman

Well, this image is not a comparison in which coffee tastes best but in Oman, I had once Starbucks coffee on a cruise ship with the view of Muscat, and another time I had a coffee outside in the local restaurant. This was when the pandemic was getting started and I was fortunate to explore Muscat during my visit there. I met many new faces around they were very welcoming. People from Pakistan, India, and even Bangladesh work in Oman and I also went to a Pakistani restaurant in Oman. Food tastes very good in the Middle East.

Shanghai, China

I spent seven days in China exploring Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Beijing. What’s interesting is that I never had coffee in China. Read more to know why.

When I went to China, my best friends took me to try sometime new in Shanghai. Although we love coffee and hot chocolate around the world; they introduced me to Bubble tea in China. It was my very first experience with the Bubble tea and since that day I had Bubble tea for the whole week and eventually forgot about the coffee. My recommendation to you, if you’re in China don’t miss the Bubble Tea.

Coffee in a lens cup – Eemshaven, The Netherlands

If you’re a photographer then you will love this coffee. A group of photographers got together on a cruise ship and bought a coffee maker. It is not allowed to bring a coffee maker. When the ship was in the shipyard, no one really bothered to scan what comes in and that’s how the coffee makes came in our photo lad. We not only print photos in the lab but also made a coffee.

Arrecife, Canary Islands

Every coffee comes with a Free WiFi and this is all around the world. Some WiFi passwords are complicated whereas some are funny. I went to a cafeteria in Arrecife, Lanzarote, and asked for WiFi Password and to my surprise, the waiter handed me a wooden piece where it was written “Free WiFi and the password”. That was the best way I could get the password right. I had to take a selfie with it to remember.

In another restaurant in the same place when I went with my friend I asked for a “Latte Macchiato” and generally it doesn’t exist in Spain because it’s Italian. Hence, I had to ask for “Café con Leche” and they gladly served me with a beautiful coffee. A little bit of Spanish helps in Spain and even in the Canary Islands.

Port Adriano, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Port Adriano is the most expensive port in Palma de Mallorca. Mallorca is a beautiful Island of Spain and a perfect holiday destination for European tourists. It’s not far from other European countries and the weather is often very beautiful. Most tourists come here to enjoy the summer.

A good friend from Palma de Mallorca took me to this place and there were so many yachts from small to very big. This place is for the multimillionaires and there were many yachts from Germany. Looks like a good place for retirement and sail on a yacht. I told my friend that we grab a coffee and enjoy the view. Normal coffee costs around 4 Euro in the city of Palma and we had no clue how much it would cost here. The most important was to create memories. The waitress started talking in German and I was surprised how did she know that I speak German. I was glad to reply in German. We asked for two “Café con Leche” and I asked the password to another waitress and she said “estás solo?” means “you’re alone?”; then she explained it’s the password for the WiFi. Best password I ever got. Amazing.

The Dubai Mall, Dubai UAE

Dubai is fascinating with the beautiful desert and the world’s tallest building. When I was in Dubai, the first thing I wanted to see was the tallest building BurjKhalifa. It is right next to the Dubai Mall. I know of some people who have been to the Dubai Mall but they didn’t see the tallest building. It happens! In my case, I looked for the tallest building first, and then I decided to get lost in the largest shopping mall in the world based on total area. The Dubai Mall should be definitely on your bucket list. It had not only over 1200 stores but also an aquarium, ice skating even though the weather outside the mall is extremely hot, and an amazing waterfall. There’s definitely a lot to do there and I decided to grab a cold coffee as recommended by my friend. It was delicious and one of the top-priced coffee but not the most expensive one. Definitely worth the visit.

Valletta, Malta

I visited Malta for the very first time and met a backpacker from France on the way. He asked me if I saw the storm that morning. I told him the moment I reached the port of Valletta, Malta, the weather was beautiful and I haven’t seen any storm. He was surprised and I was telling the truth. It was Sunday and there was no one around in the city. I walked around to take photos and I ended up in a coffee where I asked for a “Latte Macchiato” and I saw something I never did before. Wonderfully designed coffee with milk and chocolate and it was one of the cheapest coffee in Europe costing 1.5 Euros.

Heraklion, Greece

Greece is beautiful and definitely on my list to visit again. My friend once said, “You cannot visit a place just once.” and it is very true. People in Greece speak Greek and I like the way Greek is written. It’s one of the ancient languages. I once saw a Greek Passport. It tells history with pictures on the passport and is one of the most beautiful passports. After my photoshoot, I ended up in “Jacobs Espresso” in Heraklion, Greece for a coffee in a new country.

Aqaba, Jordan

I visited Jordan from the Red Sea and on the first day, I went to the beautiful desert called the Wadi Rum with my Couchsurfing friend who generously came to pick me up with his dad and took me to the beautiful desert for a very affordable price. As a thank you, I then invited him to join me in a local restaurant to eat local food, and then we sat to drink some fresh juice. Sometimes I do substitute coffee for another drink but very rarely. Later he took me around and showed me the view where I could see Israel on one side, Egypt on the other side. He even told me that Saudi Arabia is only a four-hour drive. The next day I went to Petra, Jordan.

Abu Dhabi, UAE

I spent a lot of time visiting Dubai and Abu Dhabi and what I did not know was the Arabian Coffee. My friend from Sudan introduced me to this coffee in Abu Dhabi restaurant and it was the smallest coffee I have ever seen. It was served beautifully in a very traditional way. I have to say that it is the most delicious coffee I have ever tasted.

Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

I call this coffee with a view on the beautiful island of Spain in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands. Coffee costs only one Euro and a well-stuffed sandwich for only 2.5 Euros. I often came to the “Café Atlántico” for lunch. The lady speaks very little English and I used my little Spanish to communicate with her.

JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar

During the pandemic, I had to spend one week in quarantine and I was in JW Marriott. I had to make my own coffee and this is the best I could do in my room. The quarantine period however went pretty fast and I had my last flight from Mumbai to Goa.

“Photographs are beautiful memories captured around the world.”

Book in Bar – Aix-en-Provence, France

I love books and this was an interesting place in France to have a coffee. They have a library and a bar. However, you cannot just grab a book and start reading. If you like a book then buy it and read. The same goes for coffee. I like the idea.

Drinking Coffee in the Ocean

Did you know that drinking coffee in the ocean can be called “Coffee Ocean“? Well, yes. My best friend from China described it very well and I actually saw waves in the “Latte Macchiato” and it indeed made sense to call it “Coffee Ocean” – feel the waves.
