Buro Coffee opened up last year on the edge of Gastown. It’s in the triangular shaped building where Cordova meets Water Street and Richards Street.
I love how there are big windows on all sides.
It’s fairly spacious inside and great for studying but it can get crowded and really loud on the weekend!
I remember reading about fellow bloggers Mel and Grace trying a Spanish Latte before and how great it was so I had made a mental note to try it someday too. I don’t actually go to coffee shops often though so when I saw that Buro Coffee had a Spanish Latte, I knew I had to get it.
So what exactly is a Spanish Latte? It’s espresso on condensed milk and then topped with steamed milk. Instead of having other sweeteners like syrups, it uses condensed milk. I love condensed milk so it tasted amazing to me! I can’t believe I haven’t tried this sooner. This could be my new go-to drink. A regular size is $4.75 while a large or iced version is $5.75.
I also had the Pumpkin Pecan Pie Bar which is gluten free and sugar free. I was surprised that they had a pumpkin flavoured item in spring! This consisted of pumpkin seeds, flaxmeal, coconut oil, sunflower seeds, dates, cranberry and spices for $4.50. All the ingredients are natural and I could taste the dates and spices. The texture of the bar was smooth and soft but it could’ve used a bit more sweetness for me. The flavours did live up to the “sugar free” disclaimer!
I think I’ll be checking out more coffee shops for Spanish Lattes!
