Coffee Bean, Waikiki

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is a coffee shop that started in California and spread to Hawaii. This coffee shop can found at 2370 Kuhio Avenue at the front of a large supermarket. This is on Oahu Island near Waikiki. Merkel and the junior Marmadukes sampled the chocolate there. Merkel had the standard hot chocolate and the juniors had a chocolate ice drink. One drink had the flavour of dark chocolate with peppermint and the other was dark chocolate with orange. Merkel in his pursuit of chocolate flavoured drink also sampled the ice drinks.

The hot chocolate was the best flavoured hot chocolate he had sampled in Hawaii. Unfortunate it was served in a paper cup. This seems to be fairly ubiquitous in the US. It was topped with a creamy froth. The dark chocolate flavour was rich and creamy.

The same dark chocolate flavour had been used with the iced drinks. This was probably more chocolaty than the iced chocolates from Australia. The drinks were topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of peppermint and orange candy confectionary. The drinks were icy rather than creamy.

The hot chocolate was too hot to start with and the iced drinks too cold but all the drinks became or drinkable as they got closer to room temperature. The hot chocolate cost US$2.80 and the iced chocolates cost US$4.75 each (plus tax).

  1. Coffee is one of the worlds most widely sonsumed beverages, therefore
    coffee beans are a major cash crop, also an important export product for
    some countries. And we do all know that soffe now is so in-demand
    in the market.
