Did you know about Starbucks? Starbucks is named after the first mate in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Their logo is also inspired by the sea – featuring a twin‐tailed siren from Greek mythology.

Starbucks is the most popular coffee shop everywhere. Many people come here to relax and indulge with coffee at this cafe, perhaps because they have a good-quality service so that the costumer feel comfortable to come back here again. And the most Starbucks barista was young - teenager - adults, one of them is my friend, Tika. She's been working here long enough and she also made ​​me a glass of Asian Dolce Latte. Thanks Tika! :)

Here it is, the new item from Starbucks! Yeay! Maybe I was late for posting about this, but I've visited the store on the next day after this drinks has been launched. Here we go!

Asian Dolce Latte, inspired by Asia - created by Starbucks.   Because I came here at night, so I've ordered the hot as the barista said the hot one is better. This drinks was consist of double shots espresso, steamed milk and can be topped with espresso whipped cream and a dusting of espresso powder.

And because I like the cold drinks, eventually I also ordered for the cold one, as good as the hot! When I've bought the cold Asian Dolce Latte, I can looked for the coffee layers, like 'ombre' HAHA. Hmm, it was consist of double shots Starbucks espresso, steamed milk and dolce sauce (a blend of different milk that adds a smooth and rich velvety texture) and also can be topped with espresso whipped cream and a dusting of espresso and chocolate powder.

The other drinks, Iced Caramel Macchiato and Iced Shaken Lemonade Passion Tea. Look at the left one! The caramel sauce is melted, yumm! Let me tell you a little about those drinks! 

For the Iced Caramel Macchiato, was the signature espresso, made by Starbucks. It was consist of a creamy mix of vanilla syrup and cold milk poured over ice it’s then topped with our proprietary buttery caramel sauce. As I know, macchiato simply means “marked” or “stained” in Italian. In the case of caffè macchiato, this means literally “espresso marked with milk.”

And for the Lemonade Passion Tea, was consist of passion tea and lemonade, the taste more sour but fresh! Perfect for the sunny day like Jakarta, hehe.

For those who like sweet or beverage ordered tasted less sweet, they can take and add the sugar into their drinks. Here, there are 2 kinds of sugar, white sugar and brown sugar which available on each store.

Toppings! You can choose and add some additional toppings here, such as cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate powder. This powder is usually added according to personal preference. There may be who like the smell of cinnamon / vanilla / chocolate, then it can be added to your drinks.
