Blendy Cafe Latory Milk Caffee Latte is really my first favorite coffee stick when I visited Japan for the first time a few years back.

Aside from its very simple design, it is also convenient to bring anywhere you go so long as you have a little space inside your bag.

The creamy taste, mild sweetness and a little bit of bitter flavor that is almost unnoticeable. With its tasty flavor, I guess the price is just right!

Manufacturer AJINOMOTO AGF, Inc.
Price ¥246/box (7 sticks)
Availability Online and Offline stores
Website agf.co.jp

Blendy Cafe Latory Rich Caramel Macchiato is for those who want a taste of sweetness and aroma in one cup.

I have to admit though, this is not my thing because I don’t really like sweet-tasting food because of some reasons, or yeah, you guess it right. lol! It’s a guilty pleasure I must avoid.

How to use:

How easy is it to prepare? Well, just like the rest, you just need to pour the right amount of water to achieve the right taste.

Product Information and Review

Product Name (AGF) Blendy Cafe Latory Milk Caffee Latte
(Non-sweet)
Manufacturer AJINOMOTO AGF, Inc.
Price ¥270/box (8 sticks)
Availability Online and Offline stores; Supermarkets
Website agf.co.jp

Blendy Cafe Latory Milk (Non-sweet) Caffee Latte has a little stronger taste than my first favorite Blendy caffe latte stick. Well, I’m guessing it is because of the fact that it is a non-sweet type of coffee so the lesser the sugar content, the stronger it’ll taste.

The packaging is darker than the first one but this non-sweet latte weighs 11 grams per stick while the other weighs 10 grams.

How to use:

Tear the plastic stick off and put it into the cup. Pour some hot water and stir it well. Make sure to add the right amount of water to get a fuller taste.

As a product of the famous Doutor Coffee in Japan, this Au lait stick won’t disappoint you when it comes to taste. At first, I thought this instant coffee has the usual blend of a not-so-famous brand that I’ve tried but to my surprise, this becomes a part of my favorite list.

The richness of milk and coffee compliments well as you drink it longer. With a reasonable price, you can already boost your mood for the day.

Key Coffee Cappucino

Product Information and Review

Product Name Key Coffee Cappucino
Manufacturer Key Coffee Inc.
Price ¥236/box (8 sticks)
Availability Online and Offline stores

Key Coffee Cappucino gives a rich taste of coffee, with a not-so foamy milk finish like the one shown on the box, and yet tastes so refreshingly good! I am a latte girl but I would love to switch into this from time to time.

Packaging wise, it has the same packaging as the other coffee sticks available. For the price of ¥236 yen per box, I’ll surely recommend this as a “good buy”!

How to use:

Simply tear the plastic off and put it into a cup. Pour the appropriate amount of hot or boiling water and stir as needed.
