The shades of coffee from different parts of the world
Does coffee and charcoal seem strange to you? Indonesia doesn’t think so!
The Indonesian specialty called Kopi Joss involves adding charcoal to the coffee! The drink is said to have been discovered by a local Indonesian coffee vendor who decided to add the burning charcoal he used to boil the water to his drink, because he believed it would make him feel better and that’s where the famous drink! Small doses of charcoal are believed to help eliminate toxins from the body!
If you want to try it, heat a piece of charcoal on a barbecue or grill and let it burn. Make yourself some black coffee and then put the lump of coal in the coffee!
