Gloria Jean’s Coffees became the latest addition to Kuching’s growing list of international F&B chains when it opened here in May this year. Its new outlet at Plaza Merdeka is also the first for Sarawak.
The Australian chain was originally founded in Chicago, USA by Gloria Jean Kvetko in 1979. It is well-known for serving some of the highest quality coffees and other gourmet beverages in a vibrant café setting. Today, the chain has around 1,000 coffee houses set up in 40 countries around the world, Sarawak now included.
The man responsible for introducing the Gloria Jean’s Coffees brand in Kuching is Mohammad Ardy. “I decided to bring this brand in because I want to share my love and passion for Gloria Jean’s Coffees’ with the people of Kuching,” the young business owner told BorneoTalk over a fine cup of their delicious Cappuccino.
“Gloria Jean’s Coffees’ main selling points are its carefully selected and sourced coffee beans, with bolder tastes and richer aromas,” he continued.
Gloria Jean’s Coffees’ fine selections of hot drinks include Caffè Latte, Caramelatte, Macchiato and Irish Nut Latte, just naming a few. For those who prefer cold beverages, their Crème Brûlée, Cookies ‘N Cream, Very Vanilla and Strawberry & Cream are highly recommended.
A unique highlight of the Gloria Jean’s Coffees outlet at Plaza Merdeka is its localised food menu. And you won’t get just any local food. In fact, their menu includes selections that pair perfectly with their range of beverages. Nasi Lemak and a local version of the Briyani are among the choices available.
“Each of our food is carefully selected to go hand in hand with the beverages we have here. That again makes our outlet special.”
Customers at Gloria Jean’s Coffees Plaza Merdeka can also expect great service, which goes beyond just a smile and detailed explanation on the menu from the friendly staff. The outlet also has a 1-Minute tasting programme, where the barista will take just one minute of a customer’s time to explain about the many different aspects of coffee. This helps them understand and appreciate coffee even better.
