The last two weeks have been very interesting in terms of trying new flavours of coffee! I decided I was fed up of getting just my regular latté or flat white in Costa Coffee, so I decided to try some new stuff!
The first of the new tastes was a Caramel Iced Latté! I had tried an iced coffee before several years ago when I was away on holidays, but it was an unsweetened iced coffee, and I like my coffee sweet, so when I tried it I did not like it at all! This time though, I decided to get the Iced Latté with caramel, as I knew the regualar caramel latté was sweet enough for my palette. I loved it! It took me a couple of sips to get over the fact I was drinking cold coffee, but when I gave it a swirl with the straw, the caramelreally blended well with the ice and coffee to make a delicious drink! I definitely recommend this coffee on a warm hot day where you need something to quench your thirst and to cool you down!
The next new coffee experience was a Chai Latté, but when I think about it now, chai latté isn’t coffee–its the fact it has latté in its name that I think it is a coffee, but really it isn’t. What a chai latté really is “extract of black tea with aromatic spices served as a sweetened milky latte”. My verdict: YUCK!
I picked this drink as I saw a friend order it a few months back and thought “hmm, I think I’ll try that someday!”. Never again! If you don’t like cinnamon, don’t get it! It is very overpowering in my opinion. But that is my thoughts, you might like that. I don’t.
Last but not least is the hazelnut latte! Oh. My. Gosh! This was amazing! This was another recommendation, but this time from a different friend. How do I describe this to you… I think I’ll tell you what I thought of it as I took my first sip: it was like drinking a cup Nutella! Nutella without the intense chocolate flavour though, more hazelnut flavour, obviously, as its a hazelnut latte, but yeah: if you love Nutella, you’ll love this!
