I'll be moving to Poland soon, but having never been there I was wondering if whole, toasted coffee beans are easily available. I'm a bit of a coffee 'purist' and I like to grind my coffee before brewing it to preserve taste, texture, etc. (I also only drink it black, but that's beside the point).

Also, should I bring my grinder or is such a device readily available in Poland?

bring your own, and as for coffee beans - it is not as available in most stores, unless you are lucky enough to be in a place where there is a speciality store. I would bring some and then find other options of getting your supply while in Poland.

I take it the 'Starbucks Syndrome' hasn't yet gripped Poland; just as well too. Maybe I'll find a supplier in Warsaw(?). Thanks, miranda! :)

I am sure you will. My friend runs one of those speciality shops - kind of Polish Coffee shop but with a nicer ambience than Sturbucks in Szczecin.

Justysia, I understand where he is coming from - I am a native of Poland, yet I travel with my own baking goods since I don;t want to run around and look for things to the point of exhaustion - which can happen in Poland. I like to make my life easy.

i'd never take a coffee grinder or my baking goods anywhere with me, i'd prefer the thrill of hunting them all down by myself, and the feeling of victory and fulfillment after finding them LOL

I went to a Polish coffee house last year and asked for a cappuccino. Simple enough request, wasn't being flash or anything. I got some sort of nescafe dishwater type stuff in a tall glass with whipped cream and a fukin glacier cherry on top. Slap me round the face with a wet kipper and cosh me over the head with a broken bottle I did my fukin nut. That's a lie actually. The waitress was a lovely women and doing her best so I drank my coffee meakly and said thank you very much.

Oh I just mean here in Canada, we use them for zioło=) Honestly, if you see a teenager buying a coffee grinder, the store clerk knows it isn't for coffee=)

I couldn't do that! I cannot drink a bad cup of coffee for anyone, even if I was dying of thirst!

Has to be a good cup of coffee or else!

I presume he doesn't know his way around, nor the language and since he likes his coffee, it is up to his own discretion to take enything he wants to Poland.

unless you want him to bite on beans and drink hot water;), which I don't think he has indicated.

Well, I think so as he must have heard about your experience and a good jar of nescafe sounds better than the stuff you drank.

Hey, I like your name what does the Va stand for? I get the 'oolo' bit though! My great grandfathers was an 'oolo' and got a medal for it.

ut I was so shoked I behaved in out of character.

I can just see that happening too. Bet you left her a big tip too !

VaFunkoolo is a reference to my fictional Italian heritage and my love of telling people exactly where to go. Places where the sun dont shine in particular. Nonetheless, its entirely possible we are related on your great grandfather's side as my mother too has a medal, although hers is for her strawberry pavlova.

The Va stands for 'go', as in vavavoom.

my fictional Italian heritage

That'll be why you asked for a 'cappuccino' cos it's Italian innit !

Long distant Italian cousins meeting on a Polish Forum Board. Who'd have thought it. I bet you just love lasagne don't you ?

I like plum tomatoes and I eat' em raw.

Very clever nickname, am in awe with it. Cousin oolo :)

Yes, you are quite right, this was my reason for ordering a cupofchino. I am exceedingly proud of my make believe Italian heritage and my pasta scoffing roots.

Indeed, I recently made a trip to Chicago in search of Polish relatives and was taken to an Italian restaurant. I ordered a pizza and lo and behold the blighters bought me a pie. You can imagine my suprise.

I said mama mia, slap me round the face with a wet kipper and cosh me over the head with a broken bottle, this ainta no pizza. I wanta the thin and crispy eh you wannabe wop, gowa getta me the chef pronto, eh.

Actually that too is a lie. I ate one slice of the pie and it was delicious. Perhaps I am American.

Hmm, I only know of at least seven places where such a device is available in Warsaw. Perhaps you should bring your own.

As for beans, they are so common that the nearest place which sells beans is no more than 100 metres from my apartment. They do sell Hawaiian Kona and have three different roasts of Ethiopian Harrar but they kicked me out of their shop when I asked them for Blue Mountain (asking for it was a joke but the owner didn't think it was at all funny).

H, they have Jamaican Blue Mountain in the big supermarket in Promenada, can't remember the name of the supermarket but there is only one! Unfortunately as far as I remember it was around the 120PLN mark for 250g (who the f*** is buying that here?)

I personally knew people (young professional Poles) who could easily afford that kind of stuff. I hope some of the glory rubs off on me ;-)

There are actually quite a few places which sell Blue Mountain. The problem is that the stuff is no longer worth the price, not after the Japanese invasion of the early 1980s. I go for Kona myself (although it costs 400zl per kilo so it's not my everyday cup of coffee!)
