Confession: I’m not a true blue coffee drinker – the kind who tries almost every kind of coffee there is and one who knows where to get the best brewed coffees. I just like coffee and I just have to have it in the morning to function but it’s as far as it goes. And if you ask me about my favorite coffee shop, I would tell you that I am a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf gal. But today I stopped by to have coffee with a friend at the recently opened Starbucks Reserve in Makati at Salcedo Village.
We ordered the Brazil Bourbon Rio Verde – sweet plum with a hint of chocolate and a creamy finish in each sip – as described in Brews in the News. Personally I didn’t really taste anything special about it. For me it just tasted like the usual black coffee I take in the morning during the work week. But you know I’m no coffee connoisseur so don’t take my word for it. 😛
I actually prefer the French Vanilla Latte that was served to us for free.
I go for anything that’s sweet to drink actually which is probably why I liked this.
