Was it the new spotlight roofed space, was it the geometrical cut pathway, or was it the enriched coffee scent? Starbucks Reserve, a newly renovated space, and concept that serves the best of coffee, with a slight touch of its usual style.
Introducing new types of coffee into the menu, Starbucks remained classical as to it’s choices, yet adding an interesting twist. Extracting interesting blends from Africa, and Latin America, the taste was bound to differ.
Awhile having a staff member explain the process of drinking coffee, and how to drink it properly, to get the taste out – Each of the press members, including myself managed to get a sip of the Malawi Peaberry, a somewhat crisp, and acidic drink that has a vibrant splash of lime zest and spice. Ground essence with a citrus hint. The other new drink was the Brazilian Fazenda Apucarna, a subtle yet sweet berry, drink with the flavor notes of Raisins and chocolate; a perfect blend of sweet & citric.
After testing a few drinks, and viewing how it’s brewed, and grinded, the invited members and I, had a chance to socialize, and got our pictures taken by a couple of photographers.
I’m so glad that I don’t have to go all the way up to Marks & Spencer’s to get my coffee intake, although Starbucks is somewhat worth it.
Give the new drinks a try, and let me know what you think!
