“Starbucks Reserve” single origin coffee is bought and shipped for Starbucks from exotic single small farms in exceptional locations.”
The most special thing about the taste of the coffee is the fact that it is brewed using “The Clover” machine. It uses an innovative vacuum-press technology that pulls coffee through a 70-micron filter giving you a rich and rare cup of coffee.
Once Starbucks runs out of the new “Finca Nuevo-Mexico” and “Sun-Dried Ethiopia Yirgacheffe” beans that’s it, the stock is finished, and these beans cannot be grown again for another year. So strap your kids in and start pushing that buggy to Dubai Mall to get your hands on a mug of one of the two blends. I personally liked the one from Ethiopia as it has rich layers of strawberry, bing cherry and baking chocolate notes. The Mexican coffee was also nice, with toasty aromas of candied citrus notes and a brown sugar sweetness!
I enjoyed watching the barista create my cup of rare coffee. First she measured out the beans, you would think she was weighing truffles:) She then grinded the beans and placed the powdery substance inside the Clover. It was then stirred with a stick and vacuum pressed. Pretty cool to watch!
