Good news to all Caffe Bene lovers! South Korea’s biggest coffee outlet Caffe Bene has partnered with the world’s well-loved biscuit brand Lotus Biscoff. This is like a dream come true for all true-blue coffee and biscuit addicts like me and Kuya B!
Caffe Bene bent backwards to bring to you a wonderful gelato creation that would put any gelato shop to shame. Tada! Presenting Caffe Bene Gelato with Lotus Biscoff!
Lotus Biscoff is more popularly known as Speculoos. It is the perfect accompaniment to every cup of coffee. The unique taste of Lotus Biscoff stems from the sugar’s caramelization during the baking process. The unique recipe, which adds a hint of cinnamon and other spices, remains the same more than eight decades later since it was first baked in 1932 at a small town called Lembeke in Belgium. The founders of Lotus Bakeries, the Boone brothers, would drive around town in their trademark red truck to deliver their prized biscuits door to door. Then in the 1950’s, Lotus introduced the pairing of Lotus Biscoff with a fresh cup of coffee. This soon became part of the everyday Belgian routine in hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops throughout the country. Cafés throughout Europe started serving fresh coffee with biscuits, and Lotus Biscoff becomes “Europe’s Favorite Cookie with Coffee.”
In South Korea, you’ll find a Caffe Bene shop in almost every street corner. That is why, Filipinos who love Koreanovelas are already familiar with the elegant Caffe Bene’s interiors long before it opened its doors in the country.
Bene is actually a Latin word that means good.
Once you enter a Caffe Bene’s branch, you’ll understand why I love this coffee shop. It does not only stand out from the rest with its charming and peaceful ambiance.
It has actually been voted as one of the top places for book lovers in Metro Manila since the place is very conducive to reading books and working on your laptops, a far cry from the maddening market-like crowds that often loiter other coffee shops.
