Roadside Refreshment - Sugarcane Juice


Meet the sugarcane juicer. At the height of summer here in Kerala, we find several well-meaning vendors who have set up shop to offer relief to parched throats and dehydrated souls, for a price. One such example is the sugarcane juice vendor. By focusing on a single product, albeit with variations like "With Ice", he ensures a quality product. And what a welcome product it is. Trust me, when you're walking around town sweating like it was going out of fashion, your eyes steaming up, a glass of cold sugarcane juice is a Godsend.

What you can't see is that there are three people who form the "juice squad" at this sugarcane juice vendor's; the guy who takes your order and serves you the juice, the guy who operates the "heavy machinery" and extracts the juice, and the guy who prepares the canes for juicing by stripping them of as much excess chaff as possible with a knife.
