Honey Orange Latte, New Menu introduced by Starbucks Coffee Malaysia

For the new year a new drink, the Honey Orange Latte, has been introduced to the menu by Starbucks Coffee Malaysia. The drink was launched for the first time in Malaysia on Jan 5 and other parts of South-East Asia in conjuction with 2010 Chinese New Year,Tiger Year to exact.

It is a combination of sweet and tangy orange flavour with espresso and steamed milk topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of orange zest and a drizzle of honey.

For Frappucinno lovers, the drink can also be enjoyed cold, with the cream-based or coffee-based blend.

Every cuppa needs a great companion and Starbucks is serving two desserts to match the vibrant, flavourful beverage, the Apple Multigrain Muffin and the Berry Crunch Slice.

Berry Crunchy, Very Yummy..

Apple Multigrain Muffin, perfect compliment of your cuppa

The Apple Multigrain muffin has been served in the past but it was brought back due to the demand from the customers. The crunchy base is made from cookies and nuts and is a great end to the smooth, creamy mousse.
