New! Coffee and Ice Cream Pairing at Starbucks Philippines

Posted on - in Food

When I was a kid, I’ve always been fascinated with soda floats and affogato (coffee-ice cream fusion).  These beverages (I consider them drinks) give a different layer to ice cream. That’s why when I heard news that select Starbucks Reserve® branches in the Philippines has its version of coffee and ice cream pairing, I got excited.

See, coffee and ice cream are pretty much opposites: coffee is warm and comforting, ice cream is cool and indulgent. But their combination? Definitely nothing short of wonderful.

Take a look at the coffee and ice cream pairing variants available:

Starbucks Reserve® Classic Affogato
The Classic Affogato

First is the Classic Affogato, Starbucks’ take on the famous Italian staple dessert. It’s basically 2 shots of Reserve® espresso poured over vanilla ice cream. Pouring the hot espresso over the cold ice cream not only offers a rich creaminess at first taste but also exposes the nuanced flavors unique to each espresso.

Meanwhile, the House Affogato is the sweeter and more indulgent version of the Classic Affogato. This dessert includes a drizzle of caramelly Demerara syrup and a dusting of cinnamon to add a bit of aroma and spice.

For afternoon perk-me-up, grab the Cold Brew Float: cold brew topped with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Or choose the Nitro Cold Brew Float, made with nitrogen-infused cold brew that gives a creamier finish.

Looking for something similar to a milkshake but with a coffee twist? Check out the Cold Brew Malt. Cold brew coffee, vanilla ice cream, and malted milk make up this ultra-creamy drink with a kick.

Fair warning, though: these coffee and ice cream pairing beverages are only available at Starbucks Reserve® in Westgate Muntinlupa in Alabang and Three E-com in Pasay. Okay, to be honest, I really want to have a taste of these but they’re so far away! Huhu! Hoping that Starbucks considers offering these in other Reserve® stores. Like, maybe in Valero? Hehehe! 😀

Anyway, grab these indulgent treats today! Visit the aforementioned Starbucks Reserve® branches for your dose of coffee and ice cream.
