Yes! It is the time of the year again!

Christmas season where the weather in Singapore gets a bit chilly and wet… and all you would like to do is hole up indoor with a cup of warm cuppa.

And there, this signals the grand entrance of the Christmas brew.

Indeed, you can feel all Christmassy at home with the three Limited Edition Variations capsules from Nespresso this season.

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!

Two of my great food loves are coffee and ice cream. During my younger days, I could savour three large scoops of ice-cream at one go – although this is a phase that I have grown out of and hopefully would not revisit again.

One’s warm and bitter, the other is cold and sweet. It’s the perfect juxtaposition you could have at the end of a meal, or on a warm summer afternoon.

I had the opportunity to attend a workshop by Mr Eduardo Vastolo, Barista Trainer from Illy Coffee and he taught us three ways to make ice cream coffee using Haagen-Dazs ice-cream.

Let me tell you a secret. Sometimes, in the midst of some emotional ups-and-downs at the workplace, or in a bid to fight drowsiness, I would rely on a simple cup of Green Tea (Matcha).

Matcha contains caffeine, so it could keep you alert. But its caffeine content is different from coffee. Caffeine in coffee impacts on the adrenal glands and causes spikes in adrenaline glucose and insulin levels, causing nervousness, sleeplessness and hunger pangs. On the other hand, caffeine in matcha forms bonds with nutrients to enter the bloodstream in a time-release fashion, leading to a steady level energy over 3-6 hours.

Based on the above, I would imagine an eatery dedicated to Matcha to be a happy place – and the name “Nana’s Green Tea” sounds irresistibly cute!

I recently watched a Chinese romantic comedy “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” starring Daniel Wu, Louis Ku and a Chinese actress Gao Yuan Yuan. The setting of the movie was mostly in Hong Kong Central and there were a few landmarks that I could identify with.

One of which was obviously Caffe Habitu, a name that I have frequently mentioned at my Twitter or Facebook, but not so much on this blog. Caffe Habitu is a cozy lifestyle cafe with Italian influence, and there are several outlets in Hong Kong.

Gao Yuan Yuan was waiting for Louis Ku and he got distracted by another lady at Pacific Coffee – which is indeed beside Caffe Habitu at Hutchison House in Central – and never turned up for the date.

We know there are a few retail stores cum cafes in Singapore – such as the Little Drom Store or Pluck. There is a new place with a similar concept at Orchard Road now, with an interesting name -  “A Curious Teepee“.

Tucked at Jalan Wangi Road, the little red cafe is not easy to find. But the food was decent. And the uniqueness of this humble cafe is the service staff – most of them are young adults with special needs.
