TRIED & TESTED: COFFEELOVERS MAASTRICHT

November 11, 2010

Most striking feature:

The Blanche Dael coffee packaging is beautiful.  But unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it and I can’t find anything on the internet. So you have to see it for yourself. There are several Coffeelovers in Maastricht (only in Maastricht): two in the area called Wyck and one in the Dominicanen church. Definitely a good spot for a cup of coffee – or tea. When I visited Maastricht in 2008 I spotted this cute little car.
