Dining in the Dome with Starbucks12:57:00
If you are a regular follower, you'll know I've been lucky enough to attend a few exclusive Starbucks events here in Belfast and last week I was invited to attend their afternoon coffee break as part of Victoria Square's Dining in the Dome series.
Participating restaurants in Victoria Square held intimate dining experiences in the stunning surroundings of the viewing pad atop the dome. Giving panoramic views across the city, it makes for interesting dinner conversation and an Instagrammers dream backdrop
Eduardo, Belfast's regional coffee master gave a brief but thorough demonstration on tasting, cupping and smelling the three varieties of filter coffee on the menu. Choosing from Colombian, Ethiopian and Sumatran was difficult but I preferred the cleaner taste of the Ethiopian, perfectly complimented with a slice of lemon drizzle cake.
We were also introduced to the Teavana range of iced teas and; on a muggy warm afternoon under glass, a refreshing cup of ice cold tea was just the remedy.
This was the first time Starbucks took part in the Dining in the Dome and I am sure it won't be the last!
