There is an insane amount of coffee shops for a country this small right now, it seems whenever I browse a social channel someone is talking about a new speciality coffee shop. There are so many that one opened next to my office recently. I think we’re reaching the point where we’ll be the highest country of caffeine consumption per capita.
For those who’ve always been curious about camel milk now’s your opportunity. Costa Coffee are opening a new store at Mangaf in Miral Mall near Hilton and will be serving all their coffee with camel milk on the 28th of October. Camel milk has lower lactose and 3 times more vitamin C. Makes you wonder why coffee shops don’t offer camel milk all year.
- Date: October 28th, 2014
- Location: Miral Mall, Mangaf
Every now and then I pass by Baskin Robbins to get a fine milk shake with scoops I pick, I’ve been doing it since college days. I passed by recently and found they were now serving caffeinated ice cream which I thought was a nice idea to add to my milkshake so I did. It turned out pretty well, you can’t taste the coffee, just an ice cream that will keep you awake.
Looks like illy is going head-to-head with the competition. From the entire mall they decided to place their new store right in front of Nespresso and I’m pretty sure Nespresso aren’t happy about it. I personally prefer illy over Nespresso but haven’t bought any of their machines yet.
If you haven’t already heard, Dunkin’ Donuts will be giving away donuts and coffee to BlackBerry users every Wednesday for 4 weeks starting tomorrow from 6pm-10pm.

Dunkin’ Donuts locations that part in the promotion: 360 Mall, Al-Kout Mall and Salmiya.
For those that need a coffee fix every morning you can now take a different approach. The flakes are coated with Italian coffee but have no where near the caffeine a regular coffee addict would need. It’s estimated the entire box has the equivalent amount of caffeine to half an espresso. Wish Carrefour or Sultan Center get some supply so I can actually try it out.
This might not be new to some of you but I recently found out that most Caribou stores have at least one chess table. Normally the chess set isn’t on the table, you’d have to approach staff and ask them to give it to you. I like finding about small creative things like this. Ones that can take us out of our daily routine even if it were for just for a few minutes.
I’m the type that goes to coffee shops and orders a Caffè latte or a Cappuccino not knowing the difference. This guide helps you better decide what you get on your next caffeinated visit. Didn’t know the only difference between Espresso and Americano was hot water.
