Let’s have some coffee…good coffee…

Bun regasit dragii nostri prieteni,

E fix 1 Iunie, ziua copilului din fiecare dintre noi :) Sa sarbatorim deci! Fiecare zi e zi de sarbatoare…si sa incepem cu o portie de cafea, dar una grozava.

Recunosc, imi place cafeaua si n-as putea sa renunt la acest obicei…prost sau nu, who cares?!

M-am lasat de tigari acum cativa ani si bine am facut, dar sa pastrez macar cafeaua…Peste tot auzim cat de benefica este cafeaua, are antioxidanti si sa nu mai vorbim si de faptul ca e energizanta, gustoasa… mai contribuie si la reducerea efectului de portocola, celulita, daca iti pregatesti singura un scrub cu cafea si ulei de masline. Yupi!

Asaaaaa..

Avem o lista scurta cu cateva cafenele…care fac cafea buna! (Bineinteles ca nu sunt toate, sa nu fie cu suparare..)

  1. Two Minutes, Strada Constantin Aricescu 50A.  La Two Minutes găsești o cafea delicioasă, preparată fix în fața ta, în timp ce un barista talentat, îți povestește întregul proces, iar tu ești absolut fascinat. Partea cea mai interesantă la această cafenea este designul interior foarte  original și… atenție! – este recunoscută ca fiind cea mai mică cafenea din Europa (6 metri pătrați).

2mins

2. Steam, Strada Uruguay 22

  • Conceput pe ideea de “To go”, designul interior și tot conceptul din spatele lui, stil minimalist, simplu, dar de efect.
  • Extrem de hipsterish, include baristas bărboși.
  • Nu poți alege tipul de cafea, doar dimensiunea (espresso 100 ml, espresso cu lapte 170 ml sau espresso cu și mai mult lapte 270 ml). Boabele sunt prăjite de Origo.

3. Frudisiac, Intrarea Bitolia 4

  • Fratele mai mic al lui “Rue de Pain”, face parte din trendul decorurilor minimaliste cu tente scandinave. Decor urban de inspirație nordică pe care nu o veți mai vedea în nicio altă cafenea din București.
  • Atmosfera cam rece, baristas ușor snobi dar cafeaua e foarte bună.
  • Pe paharele lor e trecut mesajul “Roasted in Stockholm”

4. Origo, Strada Lipscani 9

  • Probabil cel mai faimos dintre toate, încă din 2013, este cel mai hipsterish și cel mai aglomerat. Au prăjitorie proprie.
  • Poți să-ți alegi tipul de cafea, ai inclusă și o povestioară despre originea ei oferită de staff-ul prietenos.origo

5. The Coffee Shop, Calea Moșilor 221

  • Este un lanț de coffee shop-uri cu un decor NY style.
  • Extrem de friendly staff.
  • Poți alege tipul de cafea
  • Îți poți cumpăra tot ce ai avea nevoie în materie de cafea: espressoare, latiere and of course o selecție foarte mare de cafea.

Atmosfera intima, ca si cum am fi intr-un spatiu menit sa ne faca ziua mai frumoasa cu ajutorul licorii magice pe care urma sa o alegem. In shop, puteti gasi o diversitate de cafele (Tchibo, Alfredo, Origine Pura Columbia, Jacobs, Illy si muulte alte brand-uri) asezate frumos pe rafturi.

Cam asta ar fi lista scurta…cea lunga , cu o alta ocazie, poate…Nu zic, nu…stiu ca sunt multe cafenele cool in Bucuresti si merita sa le mentionam pe toate. Fiecare din ele iti ofera ceva unic prin design, produs, servicii, locatie, atmosfera, etc…

 

Pana la o noua intalnire,

Stay connected! 😀

Christmas in Bucharest/Romania

 

The tradition of Christmas carolling has been kept in Romania, where those who travel to the country’s villages get to see the ‘real’ carolling- and we’ll cover that later on. But there are ways to discover traditional Romanian carolling for those who stay in Bucharest too. Starting the first week of December, with a peak before Christmas, and in between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, groups of carollers will start touring the neighbourhoods of Bucharest.

The Calusarii dance is a healing and protection ritual – in the countryside they would dance in people’s yards or on the street. The custom is still kept in more traditional Romanian villages, especially in the south of Romania.

There will also be groups of masked people in your neighborhood, and there will also be groups of kids singing a carol or two in front of your door. In the latter case, it is customary to give them some money (RON 1, 5 or 10 for each child, depending on how much you want to spend). You can also give them fruits and cookies, but most of the kids do this to raise money for Christmas presents nowadays, so they will be happier with money.

Examples of colinde with religious subject are “Astăzi s-a născut Hristos” (Today Christ Was Born), “O, ce veste minunată!” (Oh, What Wonderful News!), “Trei păstori” (Three Shepherds), “Trei crai de la rărărit“, “Steaua” (The Star) or “Sus la poarta Raiului” (Up at Heaven’s Gate). The first two ones talk about the Nativity of Jesus. The first one indicates people to pray for Jesus and thank him for being born while the other one informs us how Christ was born and praises Mary. The other ones tell the stories of the Three shepherds, Three Magi and of the Christmas star. The latter one, “Sus la poarta Raiului” is a portrait of the Manger during Jesus’ nativity.

Many folklore musicians covered, re-mastered or did renditions to those songs, some of them being well-known artists such as Maria Tănase. Beyond traditional music, mainstream artists have also involved themselves in Christmas culture. One example is Madrigal choir who covered over 20 carols. Ştefan Hruşcă is another Christmas music alumni who kicks off Christmas nationwide tours in late November yearly. He had also covered hundreds of songs and put them on at least three Christmas albums. Rock & Roll singer-songwriter and actor Ştefan Bănică, Jr. has a now-traditional concert series to honor Christmas, ever since 2002. They are called Împreună de Crăciun / Concert extraordinar de Craciun and take place at Sala Palatului in Bucharest. He also released a Christmas album including top ten smash hit “Doar o dată e Crăciunul” (Christmas Is Only Once)

One day getaways near Bucharest

For weekends when the exploration bug hits but there’s no time or mood to drive long distances, here are a few destinations closer to Bucharest.

Snagov

With its lake and the forest, Snagov is one of the choices for countryside villas near Bucharest and also a summer destination.

40Km North of Bucharest, its easily accessible via highway towards Ploiesti.

The forest, is the largest remaining part of the Codrii Vlasiei, the large forest that once surrounded the capital. Visit the Snagov monastery where Vlad Tepes’tomb is to be found.

Mogosoaia

Mogosoaia Palace is 10km from Bucharest and the ride is usually popular among cyclists. A 17th century palace made of red bricks, a beautiful lake and a nice park await.

The palace was built in the Romanian Renaissance style or Brancovenesc  style (after the Price of Wallachia Constantin Brancoveanu).

Cernica

Cernica is located 15km east of Bucharest. The Monastery awaits near a lake, and is also a destination for cyclists.

Comana

Comana, 35km to the south is known as the Delta near Bucharest, and is a good place for tourism adventure.

With an adventure park on sit, a place to cool down at the Comana Monastery and plenty of option for off road cycling, this is a destination worth discovering. Don ‘t expect lots of amenities and either pack your lunch or eat before-hand in the nearby Calugareni.

The paeonies reservation is a must see, they’re in bloom in late May. Enjoy bird and animal watching, as well as having a look and taking some pictures of the remains of the lacustrine houses there.
