Vancouver Foodster presents the Signature Coffee Drink Challenge

Welcome to the 4th Vancouver Foodster Coffee Drink Challenge. Cafes from all over the city were invited to enter a newly created Coffee based drink into this challenge. Each place will be featuring their coffee drink creation on their menu now through to February 3, 2019.

Media Judges for this challenge are: Andrew Chan, Jacqueline Chui and Regina Ip.

Here are the unique creations:

Origo Club

Once in a Blue Moon

Price: $6

Description: It’s a cappuccino! We use phantom from moving coffee to make this drink. It’s a single origin guatemala espresso. Nutty and fruity!  Its sweetness other than the blueberry pure, comes from condense milk, and to finish the drink we shave dark chocolate and cinnamon. The drink is served not super hot since the acidity of the blueberry will split the milk if it’s done too high. The foam is quite thick due to this as well.

Created by: Karen Lim

Offered: It’s offered only from 11 am until 5pm.
