NOT YOUR AVERAGE

Cup of Joe

Take your coffee addiction to the next level with these signature coffee and non-coffee finds at Guam cafés

STORY BY LARA OZAKI

Guam cafés offer a variety of coffees, specialty coffee drinks and non-coffee alternatives like juices, frappes, smoothies and more, but some are bumping their brews up a notch. If you’re bored with your basic cup of coffee in the morning or blended drink in the afternoons, reinvigorate your routine with something more creative. Would you like a four-layered calamansi cooler? A steaming cup of mocha latte with fluffy foam on top? A decadent Ferrero chocolate frappe or a creamy orange frappe? Find your new favorite at a café near you.

The Almond Roca Frappe was one of Blended’s first creations when it opened, mixed with Almond Roca chocolate and a delicious caramel swirl. The most popular drink, especially served as a frappe, is the White Chocolate Caramel Crunch, also known as the “W. Triple C.”

Patisserie PariSco offers a number of unique non-coffee frappes including the beautiful berries and cream-based Unicorn Frappe, the hazelnut Ferrero Frappe and the Paris-Tokyo Frappe with matcha and caramel. Coffee-lovers can enjoy espresso-based frappes too, like the Campfire Frappe with marshmallows and chocolate just like S’mores.
