South America may grow some of the world’s finest coffee beans but finding someone to brew a decent cup is damn near impossible. And if there is one thing we can’t tolerate, it’s shit coffee.
So while it doesn’t exactly qualify as a must-have for traveling light, buying a percolator in Buenos Aires made perfect sense (to us). It has earned us a few strange looks from other travelers but after the kindles, it is the single most loved item in our backpacks. Best random buy ever.
