(SPOT.ph) Spanish lattes are typically made with a combination of espresso and milk, sweetened with white sugar or condensed milk. It seems as though most Filipinos who suddenly got a taste for coffee have a bias toward this sweet and milky coffee, to the point that it has become a staple in most coffee menus. Must be the sweet tooth, right?
Spanish latte is not considered a basic drink, hence finding a wallet-friendly option is not an easy task. But we're not about making life stressful as it already is, so we compiled a list of iced Spanish lattes you can buy for as low as P75 up to a high of P180.
Here Are Stores Where You Can Buy Iced Spanish Latte Under P180:
We'll start off this list with a popular choice: Dunkin's Spanish Latte (P100/Medium). The drink was launched back in August 2022 and with only its short time existing in the coffee scene, it's become equally famous as their regular iced coffee. Luckily, it's not a limited-edition drink and is still available in Dunkin' stores nationwide.
Dunkin' has many branches all over Metro Manila. It is available for delivery via GrabFood and foodpanda. For more information, visit Dunkin's Facebook.
When it comes to price points, it's hard to beat PICKUP COFFEE. Their signature Kape Kastila (P75/Regular) might not be for everyone's discerning palate—but it is everyone's most affordable and most accessible iced Spanish latte option. Anyone, at least those living in Metro Manila, can easily get their hands on this drink.
For the longest time, Tim Hortons has been known for its French Vanilla but things have slightly shifted since they launched their own Spanish Latte (P45/Small, P160/Medium, P175/Large) earlier this January. Patrons of the coffee shop consider this new Tim Hortons drink as their new go-to, if not an addition to their coffee rotation.
Drip Kofi is a Vietnamese coffee shop that first opened in Rizal. The coffee business boomed during the pandemic and it slowly branched out in and around Metro Manila. One of their bestsellers, aside from the coffee floats, is their Spanish Latte (P150/Grande, and P170/Venti). Since a float version of the latte isn't available on their regular menu, you can customize the Spanish Latte and add a scoop of ice cream for an additional P40.
Drip Kofi is available for delivery via GrabFood and foodpanda. For more information, visit Drip Kofi's Facebook.
As this list hasn't already proven that Spanish lattes don't have to be expensive, Dot Coffee's Iced Spanish Latte is another store that's 100% bang for your buck. The drink doesn't teeter between too sweet or too milky as you can still taste the bitter, nuttiness of the coffee used.
Dot Coffee has branches in Quezon City, Taguig City, Muntinlupa Cuty, San Juan City, Makati City, and Mandaluyong City. It is available for delivery via GrabFood. For more information, visit Dot Coffee's Instagram.
Max's x Yardstick
Yes, just in case you missed the good news: The Max's Restaurant in Forbestown collaborated with specialty coffee store Yardstick. On the menu, they have their own Spanish Latte (P159/12 oz) that uses a medium roast coffee blend—that Yardstick exclusively supplies to the Max's Restaurant branch—and mixes it with sweetened milk.
Max's Restaurant x Yardstick is at 26th Street, Taguig City. For more information, visit Max's Restaurant's Facebook.
