22vanuatu-efate.jpg23vanuatu-efate.jpg24vanuatu-efate.jpgLocals commonly drink kava. "Kava" is the national drink of Vanuatu. It is a drink prepared through the process of fermentation. I have already written about it in the review about Fiji. Besides kava, the locals also drink coffee. We stopped at a small factory, Tana Coffee, where we saw all the stages of coffee processing. We also enjoyed a cup of coffee. It was coffee with a chocolate aftertaste and no acidity.
