Starbucks @ KIA

July 12th, 2007 · 7 Surrendered

Bearista: I’m coming! This afternoon Irene brought me to Starbucks at KIA. Finally I came out from my box for so many years.

Irene: Hehehe… This bear is given to me by Ben as my birthday present, not the Ben here 😛 It’s the Ben from KL who is in Melbourne now. Was given to me about hmm… 5 or 6 years ago? He worked part time at Starbucks. He gave me this because his colleague commented that the bear looked like him *LOL* He’s one of my online friends.

Starbucks at KIA is situated at the departure hall which is upstair. Just next to KFC.

Some of the things inside Starbucks. Friendly staff. I was told that they are currently training the local lads and those serving you now are support team from KL and KK. The wifi is not ready yet because of the delay by the contractor.

Left: The serviette.
Right: Bearista wants some too!
Java Chip(venti means large), RM15.50. It’s ice blended coffee with chocolate chips and whipped cream(optional). It’s really really really thick and sweet! -.-“
“Signature” Hot Chocolate(tall means small), RM9.50. Very rich milk and bittersweet chocolate, steamed with milk. It’s really really nice! I love it! Best to drink it when it’s hot. When it’s cold, it’s really very sweet hahaha… No kidding, it’s really rich! Whipped cream is optional. It’s nicer with whipped cream.

See Bearista in action!

I’m going to drink it now… But… But… My hand is too small 🙁 I want to sip it but I’ll have chocolate and whipped cream all over me 🙁

Sigh… Can’t drink, I’ll just sit and let Irene finish her drink. Aiks… I’m naked! I didn’t wear underwear except my apron! I saw my friends in the basket near the counter, they were wearing white t-shirt and apron! I need to wear something too!!

You will surely get quality coffee at Starbucks. I saw how they trained the staff. WOW! Really strict. They even have a scale to weigh the coffee, it must be of certain weigh, too heavy or too light will make or break the coffee. Very strict quality control indeed. Not sure Coffeebean is like this or not hahaha… I never step there yet 😛

By the way, there will be tax charged.

    Kuching needs coffee shops like we now have in the U.S. 😛 Just joking but I thought you might be interested in the article.

    They have pretty girls serving you in lingerie and bikinis. It would really increase business. The girls also make LOTS more money. Heres a links to a couple of them.

    […] Ordered Belgium Chocolate (RM12) and Iced Blended Mocha (RM11.50). Hmm… The Belgium Chocolate OK la, at least not that sweet… Price wise for the overall drink, cheaper than Starbucks. […]
