Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to the newly rebranded premium coffee chain San Francisco Coffee for their all-new Matcharena beverage, a refreshing green tea frappe that is set to hit the shores of all its outlets this March.
Matcharena is a green tea Frisco Frappe whisked to the perfect blend of green tea and cream with a gentle touch of vanilla sweetness. It is the ideal refreshing beverage for a hot day or for those who seek a break from their usual go-to caffeine fix.
Available from 6 March to 30 April 2018, San Francisco Coffee has concocted Matcharena as the latest addition to their monthly series of exciting new beverages to cater to the ever-changing tastes of customers. You can purchase the Matcharena at RM16 for a regular size (16oz) and RM17 for a large size (20oz).
The wittily-named beverage, Matcharena, is also to pay homage to the popular Spanish hit song ‘Macarena’ by Los del Rio. “At San Francisco Coffee, we love to get quirky with our naming conventions,” said Nik Azwaa, Head of Marketing of San Francisco Coffee. “The Matcharena is a fun twist to the word Matcha (green tea) that came at the top of our list during one of our brainstorming sessions. It also rings a familiar vibe and sound, as it is a play on words with the iconic Spanish song that transcends time and generations. We are all about having fun here at San Francisco Coffee.”
In early 2018, as part of its monthly series, San Francisco Coffee has highlighted some other great non-coffee beverages such as the Yo! Mango, and Hello Berry. Coffee lovers can look forward to more coffee related concoctions in the 2nd half of 2018, one of which will include a drink inspired by the “Best Signature Drink” winner of San Francisco Coffee’s recent Barista Championship in 2017.

Besides the wide selection of beverages, customers are also spoilt for choice with San Francisco Coffee’s food menu that covers Pasta, Wrap, and Sandwiches. Indulging my Matcharena pairs with the Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap (RM13), shredded oven-roasted chicken in mayonnaise and honey mustard dressing, served on a bed of lettuce and diced tomatoes wrapped in soft tortilla bread.
My favourite at San Francisco Coffee is their Bolognese (RM14.50), a pasta dish with your choice of beef or chicken over linguine, topped with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. Other pasta choices that are bound to fill up your hunger with satisfaction include Fettucine Carbonara (RM16.50), Chicken Lasagna (RM16), and Aglio Olio Peperoncino (RM12).
San Francisco Coffee currently has 39 outlets located throughout the Klang Valley, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang, boasting quality top-of-the-crop beans, expert roasting, and great service to excite and modulate your mood. For more information on San Francisco Coffee, please visit www.sfcoffee.com.
