Coffee - doing it right while travelling

2013-11-19 14:40
For many people, waking up to a great cup of coffee is almost as essential to their well-being as keeping well-hydrated and -fed. However, travelling often throws a spanner in the coffee works, as there's no guarantee of getting a tasty cup. 

In today's Travel Talk on Twitter we chatted about the "Coffee" and found that while some travellers are fanatical about finding a good cup, others prefer getting straight into the local beers. We've shared a few of our favourite answers that the Twitter travel community came up with and would love to hear your thoughts!
If you're a keen traveller who likes to share tales, tips and trifles with other wanderers, you should head on over to Twitter every Tuesday for Travel Talk on Twitter, also known as #TTOT.

Taking place every week at 11:30 (SA time), the chat is run by a few of the world's top travel bloggers, such as Travel Dudes, Roni Weiss and Runaway Juno, and aimed at getting travellers from all over the world to sharing their experiences. How it works: A new topic is introduced every week, so to stay in the loop by keeping close tabs on the TTOT Facebook group.

The discussion takes the form of five different questions related to the topic and will be numbered Q1 - Q5, with a couple of minutes for responses to each. In order to respond to a specific question you will start your answer with A1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, of course including #TTOT so you're included in the stream.

Check out the Travel Talk on Twitter Facebook page for updates about upcoming chats.
