Starbucks Blonde Roast goes public!
What is a Blonde Roast? It is a name for Starbucks' coffee beans that were processed within a shorter (than usual) roasting period, resulting in very mild & light coffee taste. A good starting point for new coffee drinkers, who can eventually go up the roast spectrum all the way to Medium and Dark blends (richer, stronger and more intense).
Spring 2012 Food
What I notice about the food served at the coffee stations this time is that 95% of them, are sweet. Some are rather overwhelmingly sweet unless consumed with Starbucks' unsweetened hot beverages. I'm not sure if this was done on purpose, but it surely worked well to make us try the coffee blends to moderate the sweet treats.

Front: Toffee Almond Bars IDR 21,000
|Red Velvet Cake Roll IDR 25,000|
For this spring, Starbucks has lined up 2 of its popular classics: Caramel Cream Coffee Jelly Frappuccino and Cocoa Cappuccino. I liked the coffee jelly, which wasn't too chewy and not too sweet. Just delish!

Thank you Starbucks for organizing events like this, we coffee lovers simply can't live without a cup of your green lady (the logo). Can't wait to see what's in store for the food and beverages next season. =)
