Normally coffee has zero effect on me. I can drink it at any time of day and not feel like I can’t sleep, or get those crazy heart palpitations. I’m no coffee connoisseur, but I know what I like, and I know what I don’t like.
This was until last weekend. It was one of those hot, summery days so H and I decided to stop by Don Campos in Alexandria for a cold beverage.
I spied iced coffee on the menu which sounded delicious with whipped cream, an espresso shot and espresso ice cream. Armed with my ignorance, I ordered an iced coffee with soy milk. Let me tell you it was all sorts of amazing. The ice cream was latte flavoured and had real ground up coffee beans. H ordered the same.
Anyway. Fast forward to that night. I didn’t go to bed until 4am. Yikes. I just wasn’t sleepy. The interesting thing was the next day I was perfectly fine. Not tired in the least. Anyway. I advice you to try it at your own risk.
I’ll probably stick to my regular soy mocha and lattes for now. I’m loving Campos beans. As well as The Grounds. I found a cafe nearby that stocks the beans and sells them in the pretty green cups with the lovely typography.
