This coffee is served with burning coal in it.
Some say this concoction helps ease stomach pains as well as nausea, heartburn or diarrhea. It’s called Kopi Joss and it’s found in Indonesia. The word “joss” comes from the sound the charcoal makes when it’s dropped into the coffee.
The coffee is made from coffee powder mixed with a few spoonfuls of sugar. Then, hot water is added, and topped off with charcoal straight from the fire. Some say it tastes the same as regular coffee, while others say it has a slight taste of caramel, because the coal burns the sugar in the coffee. It’s commonly found in street food stalls in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The coffee was invented in the 1960s by a man known as Pak Man, or Mr. Man, who had stomach problems while making coffee and thought the coal would help his stomach. This charcoal concoction ended up working for him, so he started selling it to his customers. Locals started drinking it, and it’s now become a popular drink with tourists as well. So if you’re in the mood for an exotic coffee beverage and are looking to settle you stomach troubles, then you might want to consider heading to Indonesia to try this drink out.
