Here's the thing about the Shisha experience in Egypt; it's a hassle. It's often hard to get it right and, more often than not, it takes forever to prepare. And lets be honest; us Egyptians value a smooth drag from a flavourful Shisha above most things, which is why this modern take on an ancient classic is perhaps the best thing to happen in the Hookah world since our proprietary invention of the 'Kobbaya.'

Shishapresso is the new generation of hookah in Egypt; they're basically flavour pods that save you from the 30-minute waiting game you play with the Shisha guy every time you order one at an ahwa. There are currently 20 flavours on offer, including passion melon, cinnamon gum, cherry cola, and blueberry grape. And they come with an adaptable silicon bowl that can be put on top of any Shisha.

It's quite easy to use. all you do is shake the pod, peel off the the top and bottom seals, place it in the silicon bowl and puff away. Perhaps the best thing about these is that you don't have to wait for a new 7agar or have to go through the tedious process of making your own, all you have to do is just throw the one you used away and pop in a fresh one. Now that's innovation, we suppose.
