These ready-to-drink beverages are carefully prepared and canned to perfection, based on The Coffee Bean’s® standards of quality and taste. Here at LoopMe, we’ll describe and differentiate these coffee variants based on the following categories: Sweetness, Strength, Flavor. Because these are pre-prepared coffee beverages, we included sweetness as a category. Here are the Loopers' thoughts about each of them:
Angel: I thought of a cup of strong home brewed when I first tasted The Coffee Bean’s® Café Latte. It’s the kind of coffee that you’d take for breakfast to give you that kick to start the day. Café Latte’s aroma is energizing and its flavor is strong with a hint of sweetness.
Gab: I like how they kept The Coffee Bean’s® classic cafe latte and serve them ready to drink on the go. I love how convenient this is to bring around. This is how I like my coffee: strong and smooth.
Angel: The sweetness of The Coffee Bean’s® Caramel Latte is more dominant than coffee. If you’re a person who’s into drinking creamy ice blended drinks, then this one is for you.
Gab: Not really a fan of sweet stuff, but I love the fact that even though this is for people who have a sweet tooth, I can still taste the coffee within. It is an interesting mix.
Angel:The Coffee Bean’s® Mocha Latte is the perfect blend of everything that I look for in coffee. It has the balance of sweetness and bitterness. It’s not too sweet like Caramel Latte but not too strong like Cafe Latte.
Gab: In terms of iced mocha, I like mine ice cold and flavorful. This drink always pulls through with my expectations especially the flavors of coffee, milk, and chocolate mixes in harmony. It syncs well with my palate.
Now, the verdict:
Angel: If I would arrange The Coffee Bean’s® Iced Coffee based on their sweetness – it’s Caramel Latte, Mocha Latte, and Café Latte. I like dark chocolates so when it comes to coffee, I prefer mixing it with milk and chocolate. Out of the three The Coffee Bean® Latte Collection flavors, my pick is Mocha Latte! Its sweetness doesn’t suppress the flavor of the coffee.
Gab: I’m a simple man. I like my coffee black, strong, and smooth. But when I’m on the go, I’m rooting for a can of The Coffee Bean’s® Cafe Latte to perk me up, especially when I’m on the run chasing jeepneys and buses for a ride to work.
But of course, we all have different taste preferences, especially on how we want our coffee. All of these wonderful caffeinated treats sate our cravings and help us keep on going for the days ahead. Try it yourself at your favorite Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® branch or at the nearest convenience store for less than a hundred pesos per can!
