    Coffee Bean has been around for so long, but it hasn’t never crossed our minds to try their scones, simply because we have never seen scones at the outlets we have been to. Perhaps it’s because our visits to Coffee Bean had always been in the evenings and their scones were probably sold out by then. So imagine our surprise and delight when we saw 2 pretty scones sitting at their display counter at 8am this morning.

    My Mum’s Scone ($2.90) was its name. There wasn’t any description and with such an ambiguous name, we weren’t sure what to expect from this scone. First impression was that the scone was pretty oily as the bottom part of the paper bag was stained badly with oil. Texture wise, it was slightly different from authentic British scones. The freshly baked scone was pretty crumbly, it wasn’t as sticky and chewy and there was no buttery taste or aroma. Instead, there was a faint orange peel taste and with the juicy raisins, the scone was towards the sweet side. In general, My Mum’s Scone was pretty good, save for the fact that given its small size, $2.90 was on the steep side.

    This time round, we tried Coffee Bean’s Buster’s Weekly Cheesecake. As mentioned in older entries, Coffee Bean’s cheesecakes are one of our favourites. The ones we’ve tried include the Espresso Cheescake, New York and Chicago Cheesecake. This time round, we tried Buster’s Weekly Cheesecake. Not too sure who or what Buster refers to, but Buster’s was essentially a Blueberry Cheesecake. There was a layer of blueberry jam on the top. It would definitely be more appetizing and attractive if the cheesecake was topped with fresh blueberries instead. Perhaps it was because we didn’t refrigerate the cheesecake and left in an air-conditioned room for a few hours, the cheesecake turned out pretty soft. Taste wise, it was still comparable to the usual Coffee Bean standard. However, texture wise, both the cheesecake and the base were too soft. The base looked flaky and crunchy, but it ended up with a non-crispy bread-like texture. I guess we can only blame ourselves for not refrigerating it.
