A nice cup of Colombian coffee. I'm a bit of a coffee addict, to be honest. Not that I never stop drinking coffee, but more that I'm addicted to coffee itself. Hopefully getting a new Gaggia machine soon  ;D

nice bunny, moving up in the world......what flavor is this?   raspberry...??

Sorry, but Kriek means cherry.  This is a wonderful lambic cherry beer that I first tasted in Belgium.  I was delighted when it arrived in my local supermarket. ;D

I'd love to know which machines you are considering.  I have a Grimac commercial model machine that uses the espresso pods.  It also has a cappucinatore (highly recommended device) which sucks the milk out of the carton and delivers foam and microfoam at the touch of a button.  It's my no fuss no muss expresso, a perfect shot each time. :D

Yes, there are many different flavors of beer, including raspberry; but I'm allergic to raspberries and blackberries and any other berries that look like raspberries so I don't go near those beers.

The flavor of the beer I had abroad and the one at my market are not that different.  The alcoholic content may be a bit lower, but that's fine afaic.  The taste still has that wonderful intense cherry flavor tempered by the bitterness of the hops.  I also have a case of Timmerman Kriek that was shipped to me by one of my husband's business associates from Antwerp, but that doesn't have the same intensity of flavor.

FYI... The best kriek and fruit beers brewed in this country by New Glarus Brewing Company, New Glarus, Wisconsin. I wish I were able to obtain some. Believe me, I have tried...Unfortunately they just seem to ship within Wisconsin...

The Germans employ battalions to patrol the borders, sniffing out any drink that doesn't meet the purity law (Reinheitsgebot). Dr. P doesn't qualify  ;D

The Lindemans beers are distributed world wide.  Perhaps you can obtain some of those.  They are world famous.
