hey there,

I remember my dad telling me about when he was stationed in germany, they had this coffee, that was rationed so you didn't get very much of it, but it was delicous.

he said it was sweeter than normal coffee (what we get here). with no bitterness.

any one know anything about this?

Are you sure he wasn't confusing it with dark German beer? Much tastier than their coffee, IMHO.

I don't really know, I just have always wanted to try it.

eTA: i know it wasn't beer, I have had german beer.

It's probably just the way it was roasted and prepared. Coffee not being indigenous to the European continent. For example, french roast is just a style of roasting the beans. Maybe the Germans added sugar to the process.

War time rationing probably saw a lot of additives. Maybe their pencil shavings had a high sugar content?

read the Coffee Conisseur thread....I used to get some stuff called Jacobs in Germany that was the smoothest, richest coffee I've ever had. No bitterness at all. Super fine grind. Sure wish I could find it here in the States

Check out the recent coffee thread, and get some blue mountain coffee at $28/lib, the coffee of James Bond 007.
