J.Co’s Coconut Mocha Frappe

Coconut Mocha Frappe at J. Co

It’s actually not the first time that I’ve tried a coffee with coconut. We were able to try Cong Caphe’s Coconut Coffee in Hanoi, Vietnam. And it was so good.

J.Co’s Coconut Mocha Frappe is very much different from Cong Caphe’s Coconut Coffee. After a few sips from this delectable tropical treat, I immediately noticed the Macapuno (Coconut Sport in English) that sits at the bottom of the drink. You have to mix it so that it won’t be very sweet.

Hanoi Coffee Experience

Drinking vietnamese coffee

 

Going to Vietnam without drinking their coffee is like going to Singapore without eating Laksa. You can definitely see coffee shops in every street corner and one can really see that the coffee culture in Vietnam is very strong. The standard Vietnamese coffee is black coffee mixed with sweet condensed milk. Their coffee is strong but because of the condensed milk, the acidity is subdued by the sweet condensed milk. We didn’t get tired of drinking their coffee anytime of the day and just sitting at their stools whether on the sidewalk or inside an upscaled coffee shop. Continue reading “Hanoi Coffee Experience”

The first time I’ve heard of TWG was during a food tour in The Veranda at Robinson’s Galleria. One of the restaurants there, “La Creperie”, serves some TWG teas. During our visit there, we were able to try the Silver Moon tea. It was indeed one of the best teas I’ve ever had. Thus, when I saw the TWG sign in Greenbelt 5, I became excited and I asked Sharlyne to go there with me so we can try it together. 🙂 Continue reading “The TWG Tea Salon and Boutique Experience”

A cup of civet coffee

Civet Coffee is the most expensive coffee in the world. And of course, the best place to try Civet Coffee is from where it’s made.

After visiting the Mt. Apo Highland Resort, we went straight to the Mt. Apo Civet Coffee Farm to get a closer look on the place where Civet Coffee is made. Its location is at the foot of Mt. Apo, the highest mountain in the Philippines. Its soil is perfect for growing coffee beans. Continue reading “DFAT 2012 Day 2: Mt. Apo Civet Coffee Farm”

CBTL™ for your coffee, espresso or tea

CBTL Machine - 3

It has been awhile since we’ve seen the CBTL machines (a single-serve beverage system) in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Greenbelt 3. We’re glad that we’re able to try this out first-hand. 😀 I know there are other single-serve beverage systems out there that are being sold. But I think that the selling point of the CBTL machine is that you can have your favorite CBTL tea or coffee at home 😀 . Continue reading “CBTL™ for your coffee, espresso or tea”
