Nescafe Irish Cream is less frothy but has a strong flavor of the mixture of whiskey, cream and sugar.

Imported coffee always taste better and that’s no difference with Nescafe Cafe Menu range from Nescafe. With flavors range from Cappuccino, Double Choca Mocha, Mocha, Skinny Cappuccino, Skinny Latte and more, you’ll definitely find it hard to choose.

I chose to buy the Cappuccino flavor, which comes with a Chocco Topping inside.

Nescafe Cappuccino is not sweet but that’s how a good cup of cappuccino should taste like. It’s somehow slightly frothy and you can easily feel that in your tongue after a cuppa. At MYR 24.20, Nescafe Cappuccino comes in 10 Mug Sized Servings, which translate to about MYR 2.42 per mug. Not too bad. Mind you though, other flavors may come in 8 Mug Sized Servings instead. Still, it’s quite worthy for great gourmet coffee.

Available at Mercato @ Pavilion KL from RM 22.90 to RM 24.20.

Starbucks in Woes, Coffee Fans Delighted

StarbucksOne coffee drinker’s bad news is another coffee drinker’s good news, it seems.

The latest financial woes at Starbucks Corp., which is planning to close 600 underperforming U.S. stores and cutting up to 12,000 full and part-time positions, is evoking glee and little sympathy from aficionados who say they resent the coffee shop giant and favor small independent cafes.

“I’m so happy. I’m so not a Starbucks person,” said Melinda Vigliotti, sipping iced coffee at the Irving Farm Coffee House in New York. “I believe in supporting small businesses. Starbucks, bye-bye.”
