Romance With Mr. Coffee
Hello My Lovely Chatoras,
They say the most romantic stories always start with a cup of coffee. Heard about coffee dates?? Been on one? If not then here’s a chance for you. If You are a coffee lover and love to try and experiment new styles and flavours of coffee then head to Éclair – the lounge at Courtyard by Marriott Bhopal as they are serving 16 flavours of cold and piping hot coffees all of this month. From a cold brew of 24 to 48 hours to instant hot these flavours will be created from specially imported Italian Arabica coffee beans. The occasion is ongoing month long and is named as ‘Romance With Mr. Coffee’ at Courtyard by Marriott Bhopal.
F&B Manager Mr. Alok Kar said “For coffee lovers, its aroma triggers good feelings, memories, and wakefulness. Coffee drinkers smell the coffee and this signals the brain that caffeine is indeed on the way, which provides stimulation”.
He further said that “There are basically two types of coffee consumed most commonly worldwide -Arabica and Robusta – that grow from the two main species of coffee plants: Coffee Arabica and Coffee Robusta respectively. Although there are numerous varieties of coffee plants, Arabica and Robusta are the most popular. Arabica coffees (or Arabicas) have a delicate flavour and balanced aroma coupled with a sharp and sweet taste. They have about half the amount of caffeine compared to Robustas. Robusta coffees (or Robustas) have twice the level of caffeine compared to Arabicas. Robusta coffees have a very strong taste, a grainy essence and an aftertaste somewhat similar to that of peanuts.”
The menu of the ‘Romance With Mr Coffee Fest’ includes hot flavours like Cocoa Cappuccino, Caramel Praline, Java Chip, Mochaccino, Affogato, Mr. Bean, Mexican, Spanish and Nukkad and cold flavours such as Iced Latte, Thai, Fat Americano, Frappuccino, Cold Drip and Iceberg. These coffees will also be available in Orange, Chocolate, Hazelnut, Malt and Fresh Lime flavours.
I personally loved the Java Chip with Hazelnut flavour in Hot coffee. The aroma of this one was to die for. While I also loved trying the Iced Latte in the cold ones. Not too bitter and not very sweet. Just the right proportion with minimum caffeine. Something I’d like to try again and again. All these coffees were serves with savouries and pass around evening snacks.
This is the first of its kind coffee festival happening in Bhopal. If you are a coffee lover then you should definitely pay a visit and try some of the flavours.
