Tasted Americano Con Crema, exclusively at Starbucks Reserve. Sounds interesting, americano + cream. Its not the usual coffee that I get to taste. Its a mixture of espresso with Orange Piloncillo and Coffee spice foam. The drink is quite strong, with orange and cinamon flavor.
Verdict: for a coffee lover, this is quite a new flavor. There’s a bit of sourness, with strong espresso shots. Its okay for me, but I wanted my drink hot, but the cream on it makes it warm.

This is now my favorite Starbucks drink! The Dark Caramel Foam Nitro Cold Brew is such a simple yet comforting choice. The cold brew is fizzy and smooth, while the caramel foam on top adds a hint of dark sweetness that goes perfectly with the flavor of the cold brew. If you love your coffee with just a subtle hint of sweetness then this won't disappoint!
Note: check first which branches already offer the nitro brews.

Starbucks now offers flatbreads for 95 pesos. They have two flavors - Four Cheese and Sausage and Bacon. I got an order of Sausage and Bacon and asked them to re-heat it before serving it. This is the first savory dish I actually liked from Starbucks. Finally!! Haha! The sausage and bacon combo was good! Of course, it goes well on pizzas. It should work here. It also had a very rich basil taste, too. Well, not sure what the green thing was but I think it’s basil haha. The whole thing was surprisingly light.

We went to Starbucks Reserve in The Podium and have their crafted coffee Iced Vanilla Bean Latte and Shakerato Bianco to cap the night.
️Vanilla Bean Latte for Php200.00- ️️️️ 4/5
“Vanilla Bean Syrup, Starbucks Reserve Espresso, combined with whole milk.”
️Shakerato Bianco for Php190.00 - ️️️️ 4/5
“Starbuck Reserve espresso shaken, Vanilla Bean Sweet Cream.”
Overall, the 2 coffees were good but I prefer choosing the Shakerato Bianco, because of the balance flavor of the espresso and cream.

With the variety of options, you know that there is always something good to drink from Starbucks. All their drinks are also consistent in all branches. What I find lacking in this branch though is space and seats. There’s just too few seats and tables. I guess 75% of the space is dedicated to the counters where they take orders and make coffee.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting on my coffee options so when one of the newest Starbucks Reserve branches opened near the office, I just had to visit.
So Reserve has a separate counter/kiosk inside the Starbucks branch. It’s kinda confusing because someone takes your order on the side but you still have to line up and pay. When it was my turn to pay, the cashier got a little confused because it was another barista who took my order. Also, the space where you’ll line up for the cashier is too cramped. This branch is a bit spacious so I’m sure there’s a way to further improve their store layout.
I got a grande order of Shakerato Bianco and paid Php 190 for it. Quite pricey. Their menu says that Shakerato Bianco is composed of espresso with vanilla bean cream already mixed in and shaken. At first sip, you’ll feel the jolt from the espresso. Despite having vanilla cream in it, the coffee tastes pure, strong and bitter. Maybe the cream just helps in bringing out the coffee flavor more. This drink is definitely a notch higher than the usual Starbucks drinks, making the price a little justifiable.

Nice ambiance and spacious location of the new Starbucks Reserve in Podium.
But, unfortunately i haven’t get to take pics of the place as I am more delighted to order one interesting coffee that only Reserve has. I’m raving over their Hot Vanilla Bean Latte, grande size at P260. Its creamy with bold coffee blend. Something that keep me up and hyper over the last day of Asean holiday. I waited over the coffee bar as I watched the barista prepare it. It is served in a wooden tray, with cookie & water.
