How do you choose the ultimate refreshment? Answering this question might be more complicated than you think. Perhaps you are the sort of person who knows what they like and requests it every time. In contrast, you might prefer to get something different whenever you order a drink. Gloria Jean's Coffees offers a bevy of beverages to suit every tastebud. However, with so many creative concoctions available it can be tricky picking a clear winner from the selection. Here's a guide to picking Gloria Jean's best beverage every time, regardless of who you are.

Café Lounge
Enjoy a delicious beverage in this comfortable café lounge.

Firstly, you need to decide between their cold and hot ranges of coffees, teas, chocolates, mochas and espressos. Their very "cool line up" offers refreshing temptations such as an iced mocha, an iced latte, an iced chocolate, a crème brulee chiller, a cookies 'n cream chiller and a fruzie, just to name a few. These sweet sensations are perfect for warmer weather refreshments. I am partial to the cookies 'n cream chiller on a hot summer's day. The combination of sweet white chocolate, creamy milk and crunchy chocolate biscuits is irresistible.

Front Counter
Order a beverage to suit your coffee style.

Alternatively, in the chillier months you may prefer to select a warm beverage. The "hot line up" includes your usual varieties such as a cappuccino, a flat white and a range of flavoured or unflavoured lattes. You can also pick from the delicious chocolates and mochas, or sip on a macchiato or ristretto. I love ordering the caramelatte on a chilly day. The sweet taste of caramel combined with the subtle espresso flavour is great for a treat. Seasonal changes are definitely an important influence on what drink you choose.

Caramelatte
Sip on a sweet caramelatte for a treat.

However, there are lots of other ways to determine your best choice of beverage. The time of day and occasion may also affect your decision. A quick pick-me-up before work may involve an espresso, macchiato, piccolo latte or ristretto. On the other hand, if you're spending a leisurely afternoon catching-up with friends a larger sized or more decadent refreshment might be more tempting. Alternatively, a calming drink in the evening could include a nice hot tea, white hot chocolate or hot mocha. Evidently, Gloria Jean's best beverage might be a different drink every time.

Coffee Bean Display
Choose your favourite coffee bean blend to enjoy at home.

Furthermore, whether or not you are accompanying the drink with something to eat would also play into what you select. I find that I tend to order flavoured beverages by themselves and plain coffees with a treat or meal. However, you might also like to try matching the flavour or blend of your coffee in such a way as to way to complement your meal. Much like wine matching the subtle nuances of flavours can heighten or conflict with each other, thereby significantly altering your culinary experience. Experiment with flavours and find out what works for you.

Cake Display
Create a unique culinary experience with the tempting selection of cakes.

There could also be factors that you aren't aware of contributing to your decision. Males and females have a natural tendency towards different drink choices, according to Gloria Jean's McWhirters Store Manager, Jenny Lu. Men generally opt for slightly stronger drinks such as a flat white, whereas women prefer a higher milk to caffeine ratio, making a cappuccino a more favourable selection. Furthermore, age is also a factor. Students tend to like the flavoured concoctions more than older patrons. Interestingly, you may have a predisposition towards certain drinks due to your age and gender.

Gloria Jean's Entrance
Everyone will find their favourite refreshment at Gloria Jean's Coffees.

Whoever you are, you can be sure that Gloria Jean's Coffees will have just the right blend to satisfy your craving. What's Gloria Jean's best beverage? There is no right or wrong answer to this question - it is completely dependent on your own tastes and preferences - although it is interesting to note that there are numerous factors that influence our choices both consciously and unconsciously. With this in mind, you can now drop by for a delightful refreshment knowing that you are certain to pick the best possible option for yourself every time.
