I’ll admit, I never thought we’d really see the day that the single largest coffee franchise in the world was opening here. Starbucks in Malta is a huge deal and brings a new, international twist to the local coffee scene, and it’s even more interesting that we’ll be getting the first Nespresso coffee shops in Malta too within a few months!
Starbucks in Malta Brings Another Hot & Trendy Take On Coffee To Malta
Let’s be honest, you’re not going to go to Starbucks for an Americano or a simple espresso, are you? No, you’re going to go to Starbucks for a Venti Triple Espresso Shot Latte with Caramel Drizzle and Cinnamon! The coffees from Starbucks in Malta will be meals and desserts in an of themselves, and it would be great to have more coffee shops around that lend themselves to remote workers and writers like yours truly that want a change of scenery.
Honestly? While I’m excited for more variety in the coffee shop sector in Malta I’m not too excited about Starbucks in particular. For me it’s always been a foreign treat that I’d go to when I’m in London just for the sake of going to it, but do I go there for the coffee? No, not really. I’m a very traditional coffee lover and I just don’t consider it worth it to pay Starbucks prices for an Americano. If you’re like me you’ll definitely love the next bit of news, but other than that – where else can you get a pumpkin spiced latte from next year?
Nespresso Will Offer An Elevated Italian Coffee Experience
If pumpkin spiced anything isn’t quite your thing, you’re going to love that Nespresso is opening too! Now, to be fair, I’m not saying that Nespresso is true Italian coffee through and through, but serving high-quality coffee alongside dessert coffees is definitely a focus of the brand. If you’re in the area when these stores open and fancy a more premium espresso to get your morning started, I’m sure this will be the spot for you!
