They certainly know how to do their coffee over here in New Zealand. I was served this giant latte in what was basically a soup bowl (hand for size reference) somewhere on the North shore near Auckland. It was a breakfast in itself. Which is all the more surprising since you consider the cafe culture is a recent invention in this country. Ten years ago you would be hard pressed to find such things. Now they are on every street corner. And all independents too…. However, getting a bottle of sparkling water…? That’s another challenge. Next up, Canada. I am writing this on my trusty Nokia E71 at gate 3 of Auckland International Airport, about to board flight NZ84 to Vancouver. (I have an exit seat for extra legroom and a gluten free meal so I get served first, I know airplane tricks. ) If in doubt, keep moving forward. There’s always a new coffee shop to try….
