Rudesheimer Coffee

Rudesheimer is a little town on the Rhine River. It is famous for it’s international wine making school, a Christmas Shop and a very special ‘Rudesheimer Coffee’.

The coffee is made from three cubes of sugar which get caramelised when a large shot of brandy is set alight in the cup. Then black coffee is poured on top. (Who care’s about the quality of the coffee after the first step). Then a large dollop of whipped cream with chocolate flakes is dumped on the top. Finally, the hot coffee is sipped through the cream.

After one of these, the best way to get back to the ship is to roll yourself into a ball, travel straight downhill through the steep village streets to.the river, finally make a left turn before hitting the water.
