Marco Polo Hotels introduces the Silk Road Iced Coffee as a drink especially coffee lovers can savor and get excited about when they visit the premier hotel right in the heart of Davao City.
Created from overnight-infused coffee flavoured with cinnamon syrup and milk, the Iced Coffee consists of a blended frappuccino poured into a swirled, chocolate-glazed glass symbolizing the roads well-travelled of the Silk Road.
Topped with marshmallow, burnt gold-peaked meringues are flambée-finished by blow torch, emanating the sun-glinting mountains along the legendary route. The iced beverage will be presented with a fresh cookie smothering marshmallows and chocolate between Graham crackers, warmed to perfection, inviting guests to explore the history of the Silk Road.
“We are delighted to unveil the next in the series of our signature beverages for Marco Polo Hotels. The Silk Road Iced Coffee was created during a competitive contest of fabulously designed and deliciously different coffees originated by our General Managers. The combination of iced coffee and warmed cinnamon cookies will make it one of the most appealing and flavourful drinks for our savvy guests and connoisseurs of culture, said Mr Philippe Caretti, Vice President Operations, Wharf Hotels.
Their Signature Earl Grape Iced Tea was a success so Marco Polo Davao launched another signature beverage, the Silk Road Iced Coffee which will now fall part of Marco Polo-wide signature items.
Last August 30, special event partners and media friends participated and did tasks at the 5 pit stops for the Silk Road Journey that made me think more that I was taking part of a mini Amazing Race with fellow Davao Digital Influencers, bloggers and good friends from the media at a pre-launch event.
The five “pit stops” of our Silk Road journey yesterday…The second stop was challenging for me. Thank goodness to the kind soul of Chito who was my seatmate at Eagle’s Bar that helped me get through the puzzle game quicker. Ms. Dottie and Ms. Pearl were teasing me I will lose the race because I took time to take photos and videos. It was fun after all!
