Dessert coffees at CCD

After a gap of several months, I had occasion to visit the Cafe Coffee Day chain four times in the space of a week. Normally I have the hot coffees there, but this time I decided to indulge myself and try out their dessert coffees. Apart from their staple hot and cold coffees, CCD boasts of serving some premium cream blended cold coffees which I am calling as dessert coffees here. There are four of them - kaapi nirvana, cafe frappe, devil's own and choco frappe. I tried each one during my recent visits and have concluded that only one of them requires special mention.

Out of these, Devil's Own is undoubtedly the best dessert coffee served there. It is a smooth blend of cream & coffee, drenched with chocolate sauce, topped up with some whipped cream and coffee beans. First of all, it tastes like coffee and not a milkshake as the others. It is not too milky and heavy on the stomach and has less ice in it in any form. I actually craved to have more of this coffee preparation on finishing my tall glass of the brew, while the others I did not crave for more. All in all, if you want to spend about a hundred bucks on some coffee at CCD, you wont be dissatisfied if you choose the Devil's Own.


  1. There used to be a time when dessert coffees was all I had. Now I stick to double espressos without milk / sugar. *Sigh*

  2. I agree with Neehar that the Devil's Own is the only dessert coffee worth a mention. For someone whose coffee taste lies between dessert coffees and Espresso, the International coffee named Ethiopia there is a good one. At Mocha you get a coffee called mocha float for 30 bucks, which is espresso with ice cream, so its a cross between dessert and black coffees. (Ask for chocolate ice cream n not vanilla)

  3. Well, I can't resist the temptation to have the coffee immidiately as I read this blog post by you. You bet, I am gonna have it sometime this week.
