ICONS Coffee Couture, a fashion-forward coffee shop specialising in sugar-free and naturally sweetened products has opened its first outlet in Abu Dhabi at the Deerfields Mall, Abu Dhabi.
The brand, founded by German model Elena Weber, already has outlets in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah.
Weber commented: ““I am keen on our journey to Abu Dhabi and hope to bring about a new passion for fashion and clean eating.
“I have always had a sweet tooth, and have often had to forego some of my likings as they clashed with my lifestyle as a professional model. But, with ICONS, we have made it possible for men and women to still indulge, without the guilt!”
A range of new healthy options has been launched at ICONS, including Panama Geisha coffee beans; a healthy ice cream bar, which is sweetened naturally with agave or dates; frozen teas range FrozTeas©, made in-house with a touch of agave; and fruity cream frappes in mango or strawberry with a choice of full fat, low fat, skinny or soy milk.
Commenting on the new products, Weber said: “Our all new iconic ice cream bar finally introduces a concept of healthy ice creams with no regrets and is one of my favorite new additions.
“We are also excited to introduce the super rare Panama Geisha beans to our coffee couture segment – one of the best and the most expensive coffees in the world.”
The revamped menu has been created by German executive chef Lara Allegra Lange, who commented: “It’s exciting to have introduced our healthy ice cream bar to Deerfields, Abu Dhabi – our recipes include agave and dates syrup and features froyos and ice creams we all love.
“You can now mix and match to get your favorite flavour either in a cone or cup or your favorite Ice cream frappe. The cake recipes are all naturally sweetened, without refined sugars. We use a hint of Stevia, a natural plant extract and sweetener (agave and dates) to give the recipes flavour.
“We are looking forward to bringing new ways to keeping the city fitter and happier with fresh offerings set to make Abu Dhabi leaner!”
The ingredients are sourced mainly from local suppliers and the new menu is being introduced at the other ICONS Coffee Couture branches across the region at Dubai’s Souk Al Bahar and Julphar Tower in Ras Al Khaimah.
