Day 5: Haz una pausa con Nescafé

Coffee. The bounty of South America, that glorious fruit which gives endless joy to Seattleites (and others). And what do we drink in Peru?


Step 1:

Boiling kettle
Bring water to boil–let it go for at least five minutes to kill all the microscopic bad guys.

Step 2:

Coffee materials
Gather all your materials: Cup, spoon, Nescafé, milk
Pretend milk
This is evaporated milk in a little bag. It’s stored in the jar so it doesn’t spill everywhere.

Step 3:

Spoonful of coffee
Put in as much or as little Nescafé as you like. It doesn’t really get better or worse, just stronger or weaker. Stronger isn’t necessarily better….

Step 4:

How long does it take for water to boil, anyway?

Step 5:

Attempt to enjoy!



  1. Oh, I know this process all too well. A year in South America and I think I might finally be starting to (gasp!) like the taste. Nooooo!

  2. You know, it’s actually not too bad. I could get used to it, too. ;)

  3. Coffee…..Nescafe….ugh! Where’s the tea?
