Recently, Caffebene opened its first café in Malaysia in Sunway Pyramid. Strategically located at the Orange Entrance near H&M, Caffebene’s miniature convenient corner is always full house since its opening.
Originating from Korea, Caffebene’s interior is inspired by a vintage yet homely feel with Korean and European influences and provides a romantic and comfortable yet luxurious setting for your beverage enjoyment. It’s a top coffee chain in many countries including Phillippines and we are esctatic that it has finally come to Malaysia after a long wait.
If you do a quick walk around at Caffebene, you will notice that almost every table has a Bingsu, best selling flavour would be the Cookies and Cream Bingsu where ice cream is mixed together with bits of Oreo, chocolate chips and topped with an Oreo Cookie; and the Green Tea Bingsu, consisting of green tea gelato, is topped with nuts.
We tried only the Cookies and Cream Bingsu and we loved it. Its exploding icy cold sweetness and sandy Orea texture will set you perpectually craving for its taste and you will come back for more – just for the Bingsu, best shared with friends and family while hanging out. Besides the Green Tea Bingsu, the Bingsu is also available in strawberry flavour and more.
The waffles here are freshly made upon order. We ordered The Tiramisu Waffle which surprised us with a rather different and unexpected texture to it. Served soft and hot against the icy cold gelato, we like how the sprinkled cocoa powder blended with the espresso gelato brings out its bitter sweet taste.
Caffebene also has its series of quirky Wake Me Ups and boast of serving one of the best coffees around. We absolutely loved the Affogato, with a choice of either Green Tea, Vanilla ice cream or Cream Cheese drowned in extremely strong espresso. The aroma of the coffee fills you and it’s one of the best affogatos that we have tasted so far. You can feel the double shot of espresso going through your system and hit you like a brick. Definitely a must-try when you come to Caffebene.
Misugaru Latte is a healthy choice at Caffebene, a milky beverage drink created with five types of grains – barley, black sesame, brown rice, black soybean and black rice. Its strong aroma and comforting taste serves as a wonderful Wake Me Up.
Next up, we had the Frappeno Chocolate Chips and Green Tea latte. We found them sweeter than we like but we also learnt that because Koreans cuisines are naturally sour and spicy, the beverages tend to be sweeter than what we are more locally used to. Still, this would be a good choice for those who like their beverage sweeter than usual.
And… that wraps up our experience in Caffebene.
Meantime, if you want to bring Caffebene home, you can also find its merchandises around the café – at the paying counter…
Coffee beans, anyone?
and there are also more behind the paying counter.
We definitely want to come back for the Bingsu and try the Green Tea Bingsu. We heard it’s really, really yummy… and we would want to have the Affogato again. Yummmm!
