The College Student’s Nirvana: Diligence Cafe!

Hi everyone! Ken here, and this #BaristAdventure’s for the ones who know the struggle of doing all-nighters for the love (and hatred) of studying. I’ll be featuring a place where you can pay as low as 70 Philippine Pesos per hour to drink unlimited coffee and juice,  study all you want, use hanging outlets, and for…

Pour Over Brewing Tutorial!

Hi guys! Ken here. Today I’ll be discussing how to make coffee using the pour over method. The pour over coffee brewing method involves pouring hot water over (heh), a bed of coffee grounds, letting it flow through a filter and into a cup. This method can only produce a few cups of coffee at…

A #BaristAnnouncement! (And a belated anniversary post)

Hi guys! Ken here. I have TWO big announcements for today! Some of you might be wondering why I haven’t been able to post anything here in the blog for a while now. My apologies for that. The reasons for that is because: My phone broke and took my motherboard with it (curse you, LG!),…

We Have a Facebook Page Now!

Hi! We have a spanking new Facebook page now! I used to post all my updates on my personal page, but since I intend to reach out to more and more people, I thought it would be best to link this blog to a public Facebook page! If you want to check it out (and…

Makati’s Newest Roaster and Coffee Grocer: Coffee Tonya!

[October 22, 2016] Konnichiwa! Or ‘hello!’ in Japanese. Ken here, and you might be wondering why I just greeted you, oh dear reader, in that particular way. Well, it’s because there’s a new roaster in town, and they’ve come all the way from Japan! The name: Coffee Tonya! COFFEE TONYA INC. 1231 Angono Street Makati…

A Picturesque Discovery: Shutter Cafe!

Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, so I’ll be relying much on memory to recall all the details. But don’t worry, since it’ll be more or less accurate. 🙂 [May 28, 2016] Thinking that maybe I should make this next #BaristAdventure a little closer to home, I went ahead and searched for…

Because they have a new branch in QC: Craft West Avenue!

[May 21, 2016] Craft Coffee Revolution’s newest branch is now in West Avenue, QC! I actually heard from their main branch in Broadway a while back (which is also in Quezon City but is a ways off) that they’ll be opening a new branch soon in West Ave. After hearing from my sister that yes, they…

The Great Unknown: Pasig! (and some Ortigas on the side)

Hi guys! Ken here. I haven’t actually been able to post anything here recently, mainly due to work and other commitments. Such is life, after all. But anyway, it’s good to be back! And since I have a backlog again, I’ll hopefully be able to give out a continuous stream of posts for the next…

Coffee that goes well with their doughnuts: Cello’s!

[April 17, 2016] On this particular Sunday evening, I ended up hanging out with some friends in a doughnut place at Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City. The place is called Cello’s Doughnuts, which is one of the many famous doughnut places here in Metro Manila. I actually wasn’t planning on ordering anything, not even the…

The post-festival surprise: Toby’s Estate!

This is the continuation I was talking about from my previous post. I discovered a branch of Toby’s Estate right inside Shangri-la Mall! And it was literally right next to the coffee festival I just got out of. I should improve my Googling skills. But anyway, I hope you enjoy this entry! 🙂 [April 2,…

A Shangri-la Saturday: Starbucks’ Coffee Appreciation Festival in PH!

Hi everyone! Ken here. This time’s I went to Shangri-la in Ortigas to visit Starbucks’ Coffee Appreciation Festival. This one’s really awesome, so do enjoy! 🙂 [April 2, 2016] I’ve only actually been in Shang a handful of times since coming here to the metro. Shangri-la or “Shang” for short is a well-known mall in…

Midweek Mini-Adventure: EchoStore!

[March 30, 2016] Echo Cafe was actually on my list of to-go places this coming Saturday, but since I can easily drop by Echo on the way home, I ended up succumbing to my curiosity. ECHOSTORE GF, Eton Centris Walk, EDSA Cor Quezon Ave, Pinahan, Quezon City, 1100 Metro Manila, Philippines This isn’t like most…
