(SPOT.ph) Whether you take it with breakfast to get you going in the morning, in the afternoon as a pick-me-up as you try to meet deadlines, or with dessert alongside an indulgent dessert, coffee is a well-loved drink for good reason. Not only does it wake you up thanks to its caffeine content; its signature robust-tasting profile is also enjoyable in its own right. Beyond its most basic form, however, coffee also takes great to other additional flavors—from the fruity to the nutty and even to the floral sort. To demonstrate just what we mean, we’ve rounded up one-of-a-kind flavored cofee drinks from local coffee shops. (Some of these can also be delivered!)

Chocnut from Prominent MNL

Sweet and nutty with a dusky edge from chocolate, Choc Nut candies are a nostalgic Filipino favorite—and Prominent cleverly pairs with coffee in their Chocnut (P150). With espresso and milk in the mix, the resulting drink gets a bittersweet undertone and creaminess, so you get the flavors of the candy in a more grownup light. You have the option of getting it hot or iced, or going for an alternative milk like oat (additional P50) or soy (additional P30) instead. You can also order a bottled version through their website.

Prominent MNL is at 49 Scout Alcaraz Street, Banawe, Quezon City. For delivery orders, visit their website.

Campfire Latte from Niseko Coffee

Japanese-style coffee shop Niseko seemingly takes a cue from the art of topping hot chocolate with marshmallows in their Campfire Latte (P160). Here, a base of espresso and milk gets a sweet and cloud-like crown of marshmallows that they then lightly torch for a lightly-caramelized note.

Niseko Coffee is at G/F Promenade 3, Greenhills Shopping Centre, Greenhills, San Juan City.

If you're up for a bit of a taste-and-texture trip, you'll want to try the Lazy Barista (P190) from Makati spot The Black Bean. Adding a chewy counterpoint to the smooth and lush mouthfeel of an espresso-milk base are cubes of coffee jelly, which themselves deliver even more robust coffee flavor as you chew. The drink is also served with a muscovado syrup that you can stir in for a more complex and earthy sort of sweetness.

The Black Bean is at 2/F Eton West End Square, Chino Roces Avenue corner Malugay Street, San Antonio, Makati City.

Lavender Latte by Cube Coffee

If you’re looking for an unconventional but must-try coffee drink, you’ll want to put Cube Coffee’s Lavender Latte (P165/hot, P180/cold) at the top of your list. Adding a distinct, pine-like and floral note to the creamy-bittersweet mix of coffee and milk is lavender—one sip in and you’ll be transported straight to Provence.

Salted Caramel Kori Kohi by Kohi

Kori kohi refers to the Japanese coffee drink that's essentially a deconstructed latte, with frozen coffee cubes and milk that are served separately. Makati coffee shop Kori makes the beverage in different flavors, and in particular, the Salted Caramel (P120) is a must-try—the caramel gives a buttery touch to the coffee, and the salt adds a surprising savory touch that evens out its sweetness. Simply pour the milk over and watch as the coffee cubes melt, giving you a cool and creamy drink.

Kohi is at 1147 Antipolo Street, Rizal Village, Makati City.

Orange Infused Cappuccino by Single Origin

Pairing coffee and citrusy elements may not exactly be common, but it actually makes sense to do so—imagine the chocolate-orange combination, but with the roastier taste of coffee in place of (or in addition to) the chocolate for depth. You’ll see what we mean when you try Single Origin’s Orange Infused Cappuccino (P185), which has zesty, orange-infused textured milk and espresso, plus a dusting of cacao to tie the two parts together.

Single Origin has branches at 2/F C3, Bonifacio High Street Central, Bonifacio Global City and G/F Edades Tower, Amorsolo Drive corner Rockwell Drive, Makati City. See a list of Single Origin branches.
