A coffee plant at our studio courtesy Starbucks

 

Our friends at Starbucks invited us over to the exclusive opening of Dubai’s first ‘Starbucks Reserve’ store at the Dubai Mall on the 7th of April.

Doesn’t take much to convince us to attend when there’s rare exotic coffees involved at an event. Apart from having a good time over coffee and cake, we returned with a new addition to the studio, our very own coffee plant. Now this plant might not ever give us coffee beans, but thank you for the very thoughtful gift Starbucks!

Here’s what Starbucks Reserve is all about. It’s like coffee for the connoisseur who’d like to enjoy distinct flavors from around the world. It’s prepared with a high tech process right in front of you where the coffee of your choice is filtered while keeping the aroma and the goodness all in.

So the next time you’re around at the Dubai Mall be sure to check out their new Reserve coffee selections. You’ll be glad you did.
