Because 완두 coffee *is* wonder coffee.
I picked up one of these at이마트. That is, “Ee-mah-tuh.” Which, incidentally, is replacing every Walmart in the country. Even though I have no love for E-Mart, the Korean equivalent of the bane of American shopping, it is sort of satisfying to see Walmart fail.
It is a wonderful addition to my school day although I now have to teach too early in the morning to get a cup before class. They call it 완두 coffee –“Won-doo” coffee. Sonsengnim looked up 완두 in the naver.com dictionary. “A spherical head. You know? A spherical head. Spherical head.” He never understand why I am baffled by words in my native language.
Spherical head refers, apparently, to the unground coffee bean.
