Taste of Home

I was invited to Starbucks "Via" launching at Upper room Jakarta a few days ago
, thanks to natasha (yes she's the prettiest food blogger in town). I'm a fan of Starbucks since (maybe) 5 years ago, I'm in love with their caramel macchiato then frappucino then green tea and so on. Only God knows how many times I have embarrassed myself by ordering a grande cup of ice blend in another coffee outlet -.-. I was pretty devastated when my friend told me that there are no starbucks outlet in Milan!!(yes,two exclamation marks are not enough to express my feelings right now and i wish i could copy&paste my bbm's emoticon here on my blog). Long story short, i prayed. Yes as cliche as that, and He answered my prayer two days later. Ha!

The infamous Starbucks "via" is here people! Via is an Italian word for road or way, it's the first line of Starbucks instant ready brew coffee here in Indonesia. The first two types of via were Colombia and Italian roast. I love the Columbia one because the Italian roast was too strong for me. You can buy em in a small package of 3 or a large package of 12.
The most exciting part of the day was not only the ready brew coffee but also the little ready to go cakes and cookies. There were toffee cake, mile, bond, and hollander cake. The toffee cake was my favorite btw! It was the perfect match for my Colombia via, too bad i can't bring em to Milan with me.

i wore: vintage-top,vintage bag-Germany,gifted legging-hongkong,kloom-platforms
At last! I need nothing but a mug and 180 ml of hot water to drink a great cup of coffee anywhere and anytime in Italy. It was a taste of perfection, it was a taste of home.

  7. I love your outfit a lot, you looked fantastic!

  8. I've been a Starbucks customer for many years too since my college days, even before they opened in Indonesia. The strange thing is, I'm not a coffee drinker, haha! Their hot chocolate is my choice, and the atmosphere never fails to relax me.
    Hmmmm come to think of it, I didn't see any Starbucks on my last trip to Israel, either. Nor in Egypt and Jordan. Perhaps they're big in US and Asia only?
    Anyway, don't worry Cindy. I'm sure Milan has lots and lots charming little cafes and coffee shops and gelato shops with yummy cakes and concoctions. Al fresco ones. Hmmmm...
    Congratulations and good luck on your new Italian adventure.
