Coffee Cup of the day - Kafferiet


After a few new designs, Kafferiet has returned to the old style - just colored differently. Sometimes back to basics before heading somewhere new shows that you still keep old values that the business is based on. Somethings never change at the original Kafferiet, and yet there is room for change regarding the little shop's decor, the menu board etc.

I always return the one hot beverage: Chai Tea Late

Cup of the Day: Baresso - December 2015


There is not much of a difference to their cup - except for the lid has become a holiday color - oh not much of a detail and yet a small detail that pay attention to the season

Favorite seasonal beverage: Caffe Latte di Natale / Christmas Latte / Jule-latte

The Christmas latte is a gingerbread latte and it has all the seasonal flavors that will put you in the holiday spirit. Usually every hot beverage during winter will give you a special feeling, but with this grey and extremely mild "brown" winter it just becomes a beverage.

Cup of the Day: Starbucks X-mas 2015 edition




This years cup is.... well red, and I thought last year's edition was a bit ....hmmmm...... boring

In a way, simple is better as red is one of the Christmas/holiday colors, but still one was expecting just a little bit more, now that they for years had made festive cups - even this autumn offered a very decorative cup.... and now this....

Favorite Christmas beverage: Gingerbread latte
(Actually the Starbucks Eggnog Latte is my favorite, but not available in Denmark)

Cup of the Day: Starbucks - Autumn 2015


First I ordered my Pumpkin Spice Latte to stay - saw the coffee cup that a customer picked up, and then I changed my mind: "To go, Please" - I had to get a closer look at the cup as the colors caught my attention. Autumn style decoration - just wished that one could buy this cup as a tumbler. *SIGH*

Favorite beverage of the autumn season: pumpkin spice latte

Cup of the Day: Baresso


New color on the cup - well that was last year that they changed it, but I have been a bit slow with updating - Photo of old cup can be found here.

The founder of Baresso, Kenneth Luciano, sold the coffee chain (47 coffee shops in Denmark) last month to Jab Holding Holding Company - same company that recently bought the Swedish coffee chain Espresso House - going to be interesting to see how the brand will maintain the customers in the future.

New favorite beverage at Baresso: Caffe Latte Vanilla

Baresso has re-introduced the stamp card - buy 9 get the 10th cup free

Cup of the Day: Einstein Kaffee


3rd and final 3 year old photo from a coffee house in Berlin - the chain is present in Germany, Egypt and Belgium. Again the Chai Latte tea won over the selection of coffee.

Cup of the Day: Coffee Fellows


Another 3 year oldie shot from my computer - another German coffee house chain that I found next to a U-bahn station in Berlin - again a cold day to be brightened by a hot beverage - my favourite chai tea. A lot of expressions in the coffee houses are in English - well headlines only as the text that follows is in German. I have seen the same thing about headlines in South Korea only here some of the letters are pronounced differently different, so even if you pronounce it correctly in English they might not understand you and you have to point at the menu card. My high school German is rusty, though good enough to order my hot beverage.
