• @Gaby oh no, that’s terrible.

  • @jpoh Thanks for the recommendations @helgeg and @maique

  • @maique oh no! that happened to us last week. Luckily it was only a day before my order for coffee beans arrived. Luckily there is a cafe just downstairs, and in real desperation there is a spare DeltaQ machine and some spare pods in the cupboard...

  • @Burk How lovely! 😻

  • @Burk I think there will still be demand for it, but I suspect lots of people (myself included) have been put off by the lack of stock, and the insane prices the scalpers are asking for. I’m sure there have been manufacturing and logistical challenges but my cynical side thinks that they have been constraining stock to drive up demand and exclusivity, which is a marketing concept I’ll never understand.

  • @maique Lovely pics as always. I was over in Lisbon last week too and took a few pics. Uploaded them to my long-dormant Flickr account www.flickr.com/photos/jo...

    There's a micro.blog post to accompany it but it's more of a recap of the past year than just the walk around Lisbon.

  • @ohBananaJoe @Portufraise Ooh, I don’t think I’ve ever had freshly baked madeleines, only the store-bought ones which are so dry

  • @helgeg ah I think the ‘f’ IPA will be the next one to try. Believe it or not Letra is only the second brand of beer I’ve had since arriving here. The first was Sagres, of course. I’ve already saved that list of suggestions from you and @maique to order next time!

  • @helgeg which one is your favourite?

  • @helgeg I had the ‘a’ blonde ale and it was pretty good. Quite refreshing

  • @helgeg @maique Thanks for all the suggestions. Will have to try them all! Just placed my first order with Letra to try a few beers. 👍

  • @maique Happy anniversary!

  • @maique haha don’t worry, I got it :-)

  • @maique Yeah, I've only read about that word, I definitely haven't been here long enough to experience it (especially since I'm not even from here!)

  • @maique We've taken an Uber from Carcavelos into Lisbon a couple of times now, and the coastal road is stunning and I can't stop watching everything go by. Pity the way back usually takes us on the highway which isn't as scenic.

  • @maique That's beautiful. Love the photos and the accompanying words. Even something that’s previously just a regular day out seems so special now. Dare I say ‘saudade’?

  • @helgeg I think I’m going to have to order some to try out

  • @maique it's the LHC!

  • @maique Good morning! Same, I cannot function until after my first double espresso

  • @maique I am, getting to know this apartment really well, LOL! Will have some photos of Praia de Carcavelos up soon. Stay safe too!

  • @maique was just a random brand I picked up at the supermarket to try at home, since bars are closed

  • @maique I did not have one, but sipped it while having chocolate mousse for dessert, does that count?

  • @jean Thank you!

  • @maique I am! Arrived on 1st of January but this is the first time we’d gone into Lisbon proper. Our apartment is over at Carcavelos
