Starbucks is the best Coffeehouse in Amman and here is why

It's not like caffeine runs in my veins but I enjoy reading and writing with coffee, though I do have a decent coffee machine at home but setting in a coffeehouse is more convenient especially if they have outdoor section.

Starbucks has always been my favourite coffeehouse but recently Nasseem recommended Cilantro but I didn't try it as he recommended it for political reasons rather than the quality of service, couple of weeks later, Omar trapped me for cilantro! and here is my feedback.

I'm a regular Starbucks customer and they never fail at making the best coffee in Amman, add to that their quality of services, add to that, they hire Jordanians. That is good business!


I'm not against hiring other nationalities, people have to making a living after all, and Jordanians prefers, sometimes, not to work in certain fields as they don't see it as "theirs". However, with training and good salaries, Jordanians are giving the best service at Starbucks. So basically I sit there to enjoy my coffee and enjoy being served by my fellow Jordanians, with my accent and my customs.

I'm writing from Cilantro now but for the advantage of Starbucks for several reasons. My major concern is that they don't have a single Jordanian working there, though the word about it a local investment that competes with the international ones but why would I care to support the investor not the workers.

Supporting places that hires Jordanians is vital in my opinion, as it supports the culture of working and studying, not to mention the eco-system of circulating salaries and tips among your fellow Jordanians.

Again, this has nothing to do with other nationalities working in Jordan, I do respect every single one of them, but my personal preference to support Jordanians more than the others.

Cilantro's coffee isn't bad at all but every single cup taste differently, some consider it an advantage, I don't.

Starbucks will remain my favourite coffeehouse for their quality of service and for hiring Jordanians, maybe I would switch to avoid being politically labeled but only when I find a place that matches Starbucks quality and hire Jordanians.

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
