Just came back from starbucks minutes ago.... With a replacement cup of Caramel Mochiato. Why replacemet ler ?

Coz me and the manager were bitching about the taste of the coffe. I told him that I have different flavor from shop to shop. And he told me that I should ask for a replacement if I dun feel right about thier coffee. He knows what I am talking about coz I will be in Starbucks at least 4~5 times per week. Not to say me kaya or lan C, but I do know how a good coffee should taste like.

And when we finish chatting and got my drink....

AhTak :This is not the right taste (after the first sip)
Manager:You dun mind? ( And he taste my coffee)
..................
Manager: I'll make you a new one ~(Previous 1 by some newbie)

Then I waited for about 5 mins for him to make me a new one.... Great job guys ~

    The outlet at Maju Junction even knows me by name :) They usually greet me whenever I pop by as I often go there for coffee when I don't feel like lunch. Even the manager knows me and it's true. Sometimes you get not so good coffee at other outlet and you would know it. It has something to do with the way they heat the milk and probably because the balance is just not right. I've ever tasted some lukewarm latte. I mean what the hell was that? But they (Maju Junction outlet) would be more than happy to make new ones for me. I once got scorched drinking coffee that was way too hot. Hello.... coffee should be served at a perfect temperature and not scorching someone's tongue. Even the temperature differs outlet to outlet. And yeah, you can tell if the person is a rookie or an old timer from the way the coffee taste. :)

    We must have coffee sometime. *wink*

    Agree with you !!! That's what the manager told me. Temperature, the way they steam the milk, portion and concentration of the cofee... Wow ... Those are knowledge !
    And I think we really should come out for a nice cup of latte sometimes ~

    Poison: i dont think so its the way the milk is steamed that ruins your coffee, its because sometimes they used the wrong milk or maybe milk which has been stand too long, all the steamed milk come out perfectly..

    as for the coffee, its sometimes the water which spoils it and the consistency of the grinded bean..

    coffee, worst ones are the one made in most mamak shops ... and some like to drink kopi nipis, i'm like wtf man, kopi nipis, u order air suam, i pous a tea spoon of real coffee for u la ...
