Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Thanks @Mi-Amigo  (or should i say Gracias haha)

 

The cake is the winner on this one! Ok, we can see about a black coffee or tea (I'll need a caffeine boost on a Wednesday!)

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Very nice review @Seahorse 

The Caramelette sounds right up my street ... & ... the crumble cake too

Well Done @Seahorse

Black Coffee (Americano)

 

No idea why it is called Americano but that is what it said on the menu. Thank you for the suggestion @Mi-Amigo ! Smiley Very Happy

 

Now, I will be honest with you, I've never been much for a black coffee. I always need a splash of milk to dilute the natural bitterness of coffee. HOWEVER. This was a very nice drink - after allowing it to cool. It was not overpowering and had a fantastic flavour. Not too bitter at all, very pleasant. The smell alone set me up for what was to come: a very nice hot drink. 

 

In honesty, I asked for the milk on the side on the off chance I would not be able to survive the tasting. Happily, the milk served as an after drink shot. 

 

I would recommend this drink for a people watcher or someone looking to spend some time just relaxing in a cafe (or outside the front of a cafe as I like to do when the weather isn't dreary.) As it is warm and strong you can take satisfying sips for up to an hour without feeling rushed.

 

Nevertheless, when you are finished you will certainly leap out of your chair with energy! Just don't scare the pigeons.

 

I give this a lovely 8/10 - it only loses points for my personal taste. I'm sure it is right up the street of any coffee conisseur. 

 

  • a long drink for relaxing and just watching time go by
  • not so strong that you are jumping out your skin
  • a good flavour that tastes warm even when it has cooled down
  • pleasant energy boost (without going too hyper)

 

I hope you enjoyed this! I look forward to the next suggestion!

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Another lovely review, @Seahorse!

 

I'm not a big Americano fan either (I leave those for @Marjo and @Martin-O2 usually), and I like my coffee with some oat milk in. However it sounds like I may need to try this one at some point, based on your comments ☕️

 

Did you have any snack with it as well or was it a coffee-only stop at NERO this week?

 

I'm curious to know more about the white chocolate Mocha you had put forward as an option last week, I have no idea how it tastes and would love to get your take on it at some point. The festive drinks are probably out soon as well, looking forward to your review of those if you feel like test-tasting them 🎄

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Thank you Em. 

 

I didn't have a snack because I'd just had lunch with my daighter and the baby. I would love to get some suggestions for next weeks combo mind you!

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Thank you @Seahorse for your review of the black coffee Americano. From what you said, this appeals to me as I`m not a big coffee drinker and when I`m next in town [next week], I`ll pop into Caffe Nero and order one.

I`m looking forward to seeing what drink and snack you will be reviewing next.

[ Edited ]

Thanks for sharing your review of the Americano @Seahorse. I'm loving the menu review! The Americano is one of my favourite coffee's as I like them strong with no milk or sugardevil

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

Can you suggest something for me this week? I had thought about the White Chocolate mocha but am open for your thoughts.

@Seahorse 

I don`t mind drinking chocolate when the weather turns really cold in the winter, so I`m curious as to what White Chocolate mocha consists of and tastes like...

Oh and are you going to have a snack this week @Seahorse ? I know you previously mentioned a cake[?] with apricots but wouldn`t be my choice as I`m not a fan of apricots but will go along with the majority.

Re: O2 Priority - Caffe Nero Menu Review

I've had chocolate Mocha but not white chocolate Mocha so give that a go. I would be interested how different it tastes. Presumably it's made with milk instead of water??
