For that, you have to do a lot of research either by visiting coffee shops or add specialty coffee in Dubai or by searching online International Coffee brands or cafes. Make a list of all the drinks you like and what combinations of drinks you like. Later, you can shortlist from that Idea list or can even add more ingredients to the drink you like.
