Coffee Day 3

Bought from a vending machine in the Nakamise shopping arcade is this Georgia European canned drink. Very much welcomed trying to get accustomed to the time difference – in the afternoon in Japan but at night Hawaii time. Nothing great, but it did caffeinate my system. Side note: there are no Day 1 or 2 […]

Unicorn at Starbucks?

Apparently, yes, there will be an unicorn at Starbucks come April 19. This mythical drink is in the form of a Frappuccino and will be a crazy swirl of pink, purple, and blue… that tastes like mango… with sour raspberry. Crazy. I’m there. ?UNICORNS ARE COMING? ? @starbucks ? UNICORN FRAPPUCCINO launching April 19th. ? […]

Where’s the Caffeine, Costco?!?

Is this an epidemic or just bad timing? I’ve been to two different Costco locations in the past two weeks, and on both occasions, I haven’t been able to find their signature Seattle Mountain Coffee in anything other than decaf.

Starbucks Toasted Coconut Cold Brew Is Bitter

I don’t know if I just had a bad one, but I found Starbucks’s new Toasted Coconut Cold Brew to be way too bitter. My drink was nearly undrinkable without diluting it with creamer.

Even though the Evening program has been officially cancelled, it still lives on across from Rumours in the Ala Moana Hotel. The Evenings Program pairs alcohol offerings along with the coffee and espresso lineup with the idea of bringing in customers […]

Starbucks Cascara Latte Is Nuanced

A little late, but I tried the new Starbucks Cascara Latte which contains the fruit of the coffee cherry. Umm, yeah, it’s okay but only slightly, in a subtle, nuanced way. The cascara doesn’t alter the flavor profile of the espresso base, more like heightens (or deepens) the natural flavor. I’ll pass on this drink […]

My Preferred Starbucks at Ala Moana

Is now the newest Starbucks Reserve which is like in the old location of the former Sears. In the Mauka wing of the mall, this Starbucks has been considerably emptier than the locations in Macy’s or at Center Court. Okay, so there’s not that many stores nearby but that simply contributes to it lower volume. […]
