    Enjoying coffee with the locals

    by Daihappydai Written Feb 7, 2012

    Drinking coffee is a huge part of Acehnese life. All around Banda Aceh are coffee shops from little warung to large establishments. The coffee itself is very good quality - strong, sweet, black coffee was a favorite of mine.
    At many 'toko kopi' a plate of sweet treats will accompany your coffee - you just pay for what you eat. These treats include 'sri kaya', which has a custard like texture, 'pulut' which is a sticky rice, 'kue lapar manis' which is a sweet cake, and 'serabi pisang' which is a banana sweet treat.
    The locals will almost certainly enquire about where you are from and are keen to practice their English.
    Coffee shops in Banda Aceh are a very pleasant break from sight seeing and the heat.
