Thirsty Thursdays: Stars and Bucks Cafe in Bethlehem, Palestine!

Ask me a year ago if I had heard of Stars and Bucks Coffee Shop and I’d have said no for sure. But here I was in October 2013 backpacking through the streets of Bethlehem in Palestine. Having already had my Taybeh Palestinian beer, my mind drifted to a sharp burst of coffee to keep me awake and aware as we headed on a journey out of Bethlehem to Jericho. Walking through Bethlehem I spotted a coffee shop called “Stars and Bucks Cafe”.

With a distinct green, white and brown logo, this Palestinian brand of coffee shop just had to be tried. I had already seen the spot where Jesus was allegedly born, by the way…

Doing the whole “photo where Jesus was born thing” before I found the Stars and Bucks Cafe i the little town of Bethlehem!

What is Stars and Bucks Coffee?

It’s a chain of coffee shops, found only in Palestine. On my visit to the country I found them in Bethlehem and Ramallah. I have no idea if they are in the Gaza Strip or other parts of Palestine though the website link below might tell you.

Authentic souvenirs from Stars and Bucks – this brand is only available in Palestine.

What are the prices like?

Pretty good! For 10 Israeli Shekels you can get a decent cappuccino! Much cheaper than companies like Pacific Coffee, Costa, Piacetto and Starbucks.

What does a Stars and Bucks Coffee taste like?

Again, pretty good. Just the drink I needed before heading down down down to the world’s lowest and oldest city, Jericho. The Stars and Bucks coffee is recommended. Head to Palestine and try it.
