Paid for the ๐™„๐™˜๐™š๐™™ ๐™ƒ๐™–๐™ฏ๐™š๐™ก๐™ฃ๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐˜ผ๐™ก๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$6.50) myself and jeeeeez this wAS so damn good: itโ€™s silky and nutty โ€” even the โ€œI would rather take caffeine pills than drink coffeeโ€ bf drank half of this. Take ur caffeine pills. Iโ€™ll take the whole thing please ๐Ÿฅณโ˜•๏ธ

๐™„๐™˜๐™š๐™™ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ก๐™ค๐™ข๐™—๐™ž๐™– ๐™‘๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™– ๐˜พ๐™ก๐™–๐™—๐™š๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–(~$5.50) was surprisingly light yet creamy enough. Not a coffee expert, but this smooth vanilla coffee had enough coffee to balance out the milk โ€” a โ€˜just rightโ€™ feeling. Subtle nutty undertones were spotted in this iced white before ending with a mild milk chocolate finish. โ˜•๏ธ

Supposedly, there was baked Apple flavour, but I didnโ€™t taste that so ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Ah, yes. The โ€œpercentage coffeeโ€ that leaves the coffee addicts divided between Team Arabica and Team (Donโ€™t Waste your money).

I paid close to 10 bucks for this ๐˜พ๐™–๐™›๐™š ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$8) with Oat Milk (~+$1) which honestly is kind of overpriced. I distinctly remember this being better, though. โ˜•๏ธ
-
The taste of coffee is unique for sure, and my choice of oat milk further underscoring that, but this was not worth 9 bucks ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Their ๐™„๐™˜๐™š๐™™ ๐˜ฝ๐™ก๐™–๐™˜๐™  (~$6) was a neutral one, and undertook a strong coffee bean aroma.

Literally had the whole CB to make dalgona coffee but surprise! I didnโ€™t, and instead came to get the ๐˜ฟ๐™–๐™ก๐™œ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™– ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$8) from Kreams. โ˜•๏ธ

Caramelised crunchy sugar formed a heaping mountain on top of the latte, sweetening something already sweet. Itโ€™s definitely a pleasant drinkโ€” but also sends โ€œPrediabetes is a warning sign for diabetesโ€ HPB advert sirens in my head ๐Ÿคช

I remember disliking Chai Latte, but Tobyโ€™s ๐˜พ๐™๐™–๐™ž ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$5.80) wasnโ€™t over the top with the spice, inside coming in more comforting and complementary. Equally impressive was their ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$4.90) which had a nice nutty finish against a light bodied milk base. โ˜•๏ธ

๐™„๐™˜๐™š๐™™ ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™ž๐™ก๐™š๐™ฎ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™š (~$9) went surprisingly well, though the shot of Baileys wasnโ€™t the strongest against the coffee base. The coffee THOUGH. I loved the smoothness and richness of their blend, leaving a creamy nutty mouthfeel behind.โ˜•๏ธ

Ig @goodfomood

Iโ€™ve had their ๐™๐™ค๐™—๐™ค๐™Š๐™ฃ๐™š (~$7.50 with pearls) before and was treated to a smooth and milky vanilla solution. Not quite sure if it went with Boba but itโ€™s one of the better coffees around. ๐Ÿฅณ

Ig @goodfomood

Their coffees are rather mild, and really low in acidity. Even their ๐˜ฝ๐™ก๐™–๐™˜๐™  ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™š (~$6) lacked the acidic spike I was expecting. I suppose that was what they were going for, (itโ€™s supposed to be easier on your stomach) but for me this cold brew just screamed โ€˜CONFUSEDโ€™.โ˜•๏ธ

Ig @goodfomood

If I had to pick one, Iโ€™d go for the ๐™’๐™๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™š (~$7). Not to say that Iโ€™d go for it if I had other options: bc it felt creamy, yet tasted diluted and really thin. Left me with a nutty aroma and also unmet expectations. Welp ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Their ๐˜ผ๐™ก๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™š (~$8) had a headstrong almond milk start. It tapered off toward the end and like the white coffee, felt thinned out. ๐Ÿฅœ๐Ÿฅœ

Two of my fav thingsโ€” matcha and coffee to make the ๐˜ฟ๐™ž๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ฎ ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™˜๐™๐™– ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$7.50) ๐Ÿต

A complexity of flavours: the very slight sweetness from the milk, then transitioning to the richness of the matcha, before it leaves you with the bitter aftertaste of the espresso shot. โ˜•๏ธ
-
The matcha was clumpy at times, which Iโ€™m not horribly picky about, but it might not be for everyone. As with the cream of the milk โ€” it was quite heavy for me and switching to oat milk may have been a better choice.

Caught these Bottled ๐™„๐™˜๐™š ๐™’๐™๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š๐™จ (~$21 for 6 on sale) while they were on promo, so this was a STEAL. ๐Ÿ˜›
.
I must say itโ€™s not the silkiest texture, coming off rather choppy at times compared to other brews Iโ€™ve had. Starting off light before crescendoing to a heightened strong flavour, the evidence of coffee here was pronounced toward the end.โ˜•๏ธ
.
With bottled brew deliveries popping up everywhere at steep prices (Iโ€™ve seen $10 a bottle...) itโ€™s hard to argue that Parallelโ€™s arenโ€™t competitively priced, which I feel is their main pull factor. ๐Ÿฅ›
