I have seen my grandfather take his black coffee and the habit has been inherited by me. However my kids does follow my footsteps and I think that over consumption black coffee ends with me.
I consider it over consumption because my daily intake is more than a mug (not cup) of coffee daily. If I did not take coffee in one day, something might be wrong in my daily routine drink intake.

My black coffee that I inherited is so thick that there is still a thin film of leftovers on the inside of the cup. A cup off coffee that I took can still be diluted to make another cup of the same servings. That what make me lost immunity to caffeine maybe. I can still take a mug of thick black coffee and still can sleep in about an hours time.
What prompted me to write this post was because of my visit to a cottage industry coffee trading company in Tanjung Sepat town. I was with the group of travel enthusiast made up of bloggers and photographers for the #TSDAYOUT, a monthly activity organised by Selangor Tourism. Thank you Dian for picking me from the list of likes on Tourism Selangor Facebook Fanpage.
What I am going to relate in this posting is based on what I saw and experience during the #TSDAYOUT with Tourism Selangor. We visited the family run, Joo Fa Trading, a coffee processing company that still runs since about 50 years ago. It is in a normal house where the family stays back to back with the coffee processing area. The factory is at Lorong 5 in Tanjung Sepat Town.

Fresh coffee fruits are picked from trees before the beans are being separated. Now only I knew that fresh coffee beans that come in pairs inside the fruit is not what coffee taste when you drink. we were briefed that the raw coffee bean coated with a soft jellylike substance and is quite sweet. I tried the taste and that is true.
Coffee fruits are dried in the hot sun to hydrate the them before being separated in a specially designed homemade machine.
