Guess ending my weekend will be one of the most memorable of all because of my entry was chosen on the last campaign of Nuffnang —Abenson & Nokia campaign, I take home a brand new Nokia Lumia 620 from the sponsors.
Thanks Nuffnang Philippines, Nokia, and Abenson for the phone.
After that wonderful event, I tagged my friend along to buy a new sim —micro sim for my new phone, at the same time to check the "Drink of the month" from Starbucks, the Starbucks Asian Dolce Latte. Dolce Latte is already popular in the Philippines for quite sometimes—the first time I heard Dolce Latte was back in 2011 where Nestle is introducing this one on their events by giving Dolce Latte machine to the visitors—and Starbucks is no stranger when it comes to this one.
Asian Dolce Latte is a another product from Starbucks which was introduced in Asian market this month and the Philippines is one of them; if you are a coffee drinker or a Starbucks drinker, you will definitely know the Cinnamon Dolce Latte. The difference of both products is that the Asian variant is using a different Dolce sauce which is appealing to Asian drinker compare to North American counterpart which they prefer Cinnamon Dolce flavored syrup; the ingredient and the preparation are still the same (whipped cream, steamed milk, and expresso)on both variant.
Anyway, enough of that coffee 101 here and let's go back where we enjoy drinking coffee and frappucino and not thinking anything. We ordered the ice-coffee rather than the hot one which I'm not into it.
This drink have two shots of expresso when serve; so if you are not into that hyper-palpitated thing here, then I would suggest advise the barista just to have one shot of expresso to your drink.
When you are going to take the first sip, you will taste the Dolce cream—for me it taste like a mocha syrup—below the steamed milk; there is a twist here, try to stir the drink, you will taste the strong expresso coffee which will give you that alert feeling.
This drink is ideal for those individual who will work longer hours or to wake up a little longer; perfect for night-owls, bloggers, or folks who are working at night.
If you want to try this then I would suggest you better go to you nearest Starbucks branch and experienced their newest product. Here are more images of Starbucks Asian Dolce Latte iced-coffee.
