Craving for RICE COFFEE: "Would YOU like some?"
June 21, 2019 11:57am CST
This morning, my mom and I were talking about 'rice coffee.' I had tried to have a taste of it while still working in the mountainous area of my country. I am working with the local tribes and most of them are in the poor state status. Whenever I am visiting them, they usually offer brewed coffee or 'barako' coffee. If it is not available, they can use 'rice coffee' instead. Most of these local tribes plant rice in their paddies. It is their personal consumption. I had seen how they do it. It simply roasting the rice into the pan and let turned black. Then, we can boil it like how it was done in making brewed coffee. "Have you tried to drink a cup of rice coffee?" "Do you think it is beneficial to our health?" Image Credit: qph.fs.quoracdn.net

@Shavkat It sounds nice. During World War II people from my country drank something called Richs because coffee beans weren't available. Richs consisted of chicory and a couple of other things. I wasn't born at that time, but I once had a cup of Richs (in a historical museum)
That's my favorite coffee actually when I was young. My grand mother would make us this and it's delicious. But I forgot how to make it but thanks to your discussion. I was wondering last month how I used to do it when I just young after learning from my grandma. My grandmother was from malolos city. Not in mountainous religion but she still knew how to cook this. Now I know again how to do it, I will try it again but not too often as rice is quite expensive. Drinking real coffee is cheaper.
