December is always the month for coffee catch-ups and it is also the month of the Festive Blend!

I always need a Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks to remind myself about Christmas. This year, Starbucks launched a new festive beverage. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has launched some new Christmas drinks as well.

Last but not least, Nespresso has also launched 3 dessert-inspired flavours for the season!

Starbucks Christmas Cookie Latte


Aside from the traditional Toffee Nut Latte, Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha and Peppermint Mocha, Starbucks has launched a new beverage – Christmas Cookie Latte this year.

The folks at Starbucks described the Christmas Cookie Latte to “taste just like grandma made them”. A buttery creamy latte topped with shortbread cookie sauce and  butter cookie crumbles, this beverage is one that packs a little crunch!

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Holiday Beverages 2014


Besides the traditional Red Velvet Hot Cocoa, the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf launched three new beverages this year – Winter Dream Tea Latte, Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Ice Blended and Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Latte.

Besides the Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle which has a coffee blend, the other beverages are blended with hot chocolate or tea. These beverages would be suitable for non coffee drinkers.

Nespresso Limited Edition Variations Grands Crus


Nespresso has also launched three limited edition Grands Crus that are inspired by the world’s favourite desserts. The partnership of the balanced and rounded Livanto, combined with the flavours of Hazelnut Dessert, Apple Crumble and Chocolate Mint, bring much magic to the festive season.

Hazelnut Dessert: The hazelnut aroma combined with the sweet caramel notes of Livanto Grand Cru to evoke homemade shortbread cookies.
Apple Crumble: A balanced harmony between baked apple flavours and biscuit notes of a crumble higlights the roasted notes of Livanto Grand Cru.
Chocolate Mint: An exquisite marriage o the fragrant roasted Livanto Grand Cru with the delectable flavours of dark chocolate and refreshing mint.

Indeed, it is possible to enjoy a hazelnut latte or a chocolate mint mocha at the comfort of your home with these festive Grands Crus. Available only for a limited period of time at Nespresso boutiques and online, each sleeve of ten capsules retails at S$12.
