Convenience store chain 7-Eleven presents an affordable line of caffeinated concoctions: City Blends. There are four variants: Brewed Coffee, French Vanilla, Mochaccino, and Hershey's Dark Chocolate.
City Blends coffee boasts of 100% Arabica beans as its base. And one can truly sense this: the Brewed Coffee's taste is deep, round, and punctuated. And it's not acidic. Quite delicious, actually.
Now for the other variants: the Mochaccino and the French Vanilla taste the same. No hint of mocha for the first, no hint of vanilla for the second. It's all milk and sugar. As for the Hershey's Dark Chocolate, well the only thing dark chocolate about this is the color; its flavor bears no bittersweet taste of real dark chocolate. It's too sweet actually.
A small cup of City Blends coffee costs Php 20 for any variant. A medium one costs Php 29.
Try it and judge for yourself.
