Starbucks Taipei

Starbucks Taipei 14th Anniversary sale-001
After Yangmingshan we went to Tamsui (淡水, or Danshui, Danshuei, Tamshui) Old Street and waterfront to have lunch and walk around. While waiting for my cousin Benjie to park his van I saw this Starbucks store celebrating it’s 14th anniversary in Taipei and some products were on sale for 15% off.

Tinned egg rolls, cookies, and tea were on sale.

You could buy the whole pack of cookies of waffles. I just bought 2 pieces of the waffles and double chocolate cookies. Both were delish!

What really caught my eye was this goose neck electric kettle specially for making hot water for pour over/drip coffee. I’ve been wanting this for a long time and the only one I’ve found is Bonavita which cost US$50. I’ve never seen this in any Starbucks store in the USA, Hong Kong or Manila.

Even after discount it still costs a lot more and to my dismay it’s 110 volts.

This gooseneck pot is good for transferring hot water then using it to make pour over coffee.

This single drip coffee maker with built in metal filter was a very good buy and I convinced Pat and Jay to buy it. I have a similar one made by Hario. Muji also sells one like this. The kettles above are just perfect for this kind of filter. I haven’t seen this anywhere else either.

It was really fun seeing all these new stuff in Starbucks Taipei. I also got a black mug with orange interiors that wasn’t available in Manila before but recently I saw it selling in Starbucks Galleria.
