Starbucks Reserve Grand Launch

Friday, September 26, 2014

Would you believe that Starbucks has been in the country for close to 17 years now?  Yes, that's how long they've been serving us with wonderful coffee!  This year, I was witness to the first ever Starbucks Reserve store in Tomas Morato.  Starbucks Reserve upped the ante by giving us with exotic, rare, ultra premium and exquisite coffees from around the world!

This is the newest Starbucks Reserve store in Signa Residences in Makati.




Isn't she a beauty?  I was so marveled when I saw the store!!  It felt like I was transported to a cafe somewhere far away.  Look at those jars that are on display - those are 300 jars of coffee beans!  I think the high ceiling was the trick - and it's beautiful!  I had the pleasure of meeting Nina - she does the store renovations for Starbucks - and I told her how much of a good job she has done because all the stores look so nice and inviting!  Good job, Nina!

What is special about this particular store is that they have the Clover brewing system.  This brewing system uses a vacuum press to create your cup of coffee in front of you!  We were treated to a demonstration and we were all impressed with what we saw!  It was so hi-tech, I mean I am used to the old reliable coffee makers and french press but this one - wow, I can't believe that there's a machine that just does that!  And it's a SINGLE cup EVERY time.  I can just imagine the delight of this coffee experience for coffee enthusiasts.

As with all Starbucks Reserve stores - the baristas in charge are ALL coffee masters!  Starbucks Reserve stores also have their own exclusive food items, note that these aren't available in regular Starbucks stores.



These Chocolate Caramel Tarts are so good and gooey!
If you're a sweet tooth, then this is definitely for you!! 




This is the Italian Garlic Cream Cheese on Multigrain Bread
I so appreciate the smell of bread and this multigrain bread smelled particularly lovely.
Combined with the garlic cream cheese - it was sooo good and savoury!



The Salted Caramel Eclairs
Who doesn't love salted caramel?  Hahaha!! 



Everyone who knows me know how much I love vanilla and this White Chocolate Vanilla Eclair did not disappoint!  In fact, I had two of these!  Yes - two!  I don't think I will ever be on a diet!  Hahaha..


Enjoy these exclusive food offerings at a Starbucks Reserve store.  See you there!

  1. Their reserve coffee is pretty good, even though quite expensive. I tried their Brazil and Sumatra blends. They serve it using the pour-over-cup method right in front of you, which is kind of cool. But I still like good old Barako beans!
