Starbucks is one of the favorite coffee cafes in Penang, providing quality coffee in comfortable surroundings. The café with a passion for coffee launches the new, “However-You-Want-It Frappuccino” blended beverages in Malaysia.

Invited guests and media enjoyed an unforgettable coffee experience at the indoor event held at Starbucks E-gate, Penang. Under the guidance and demonstration by Salleharon and Yee Lin, we started taking baby steps in making the Soy Green Tea Cream Frappuccino® and Extra Coffee Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage. These are the two best sellers at Starbucks.

The event also had us making our personalize frappuccino. “However-You-Want-It Frappuccino” provides customers to choose their dose of ingredients – amount of coffee, flavor, sweetness and toppings. For customers with dietary needs, they are able to enjoy their drinks with options of non-fat milk, soy milk and sugar-free syrup.

Squeezing the whip cream is not as easy as it looks…

 

The fun and informative event had everyone taking part in the “Best-However-You-Want-It Frappuccino®”contest. It had several of us walking away with great prizes! After the contest, we went on to indulge in the Starbucks mooncakes, delicacy for the coming Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.
