It’s amazing what you come across on top of Mountains.
We met some Israeli soldiers at the top of Mount Tabor. Our guide Arthur struck up a conversation with them and they offered us some coffee they were brewing on a single burner camp stove. Though not a coffee drinker, I didn’t want to appear impolite and after some coaxing I decided to sample a cup (or in this case, a glass).
It was fantastic! I asked what gave it its unique flavour.
“It has cardamom in it.” The soldier revealed to as he handed over a green and white package covered in foreign characters, “It’s Arab.”
Pausing, he added sheepishly, “They make the best coffee.”
