Coffee Project PH

It’s been a while since I have written something about coffee. If there’s one coffee shop that provides comfort, I would recommend Coffee Project in WCC, Shaw.

It provides a personal space to breathe. It’s a perfect place to clear the head and to enjoy ME TIME. 

Kaso lang, hindi ko mapigilan i-recommend yung place sa friends ko, so I ended up bringing friends sa Coffee Project so it’s not anymore a Me time space.

Bago kong tambayan. #coffeeprojectph is life. #kape #coffee #coffeeshop #ph

January:  The first visit was with the best friend. 🙂 It’s actually a celebration of our birthdays.

He took a lot of pictures and just sharing some of the captured moments. 🙂

February: Second visit was spontaneous with a few close friends. The approximately 2 km walk didn’t bother us after reaching the place.

March and April:

Third and fourth, celebrated a good time with my favorite person. Me, myself and I.

Fifth, I visited the place with the same friends but there was a twist.

After visiting Coffee Project, Shaw, we also visited Coffee Project, Lake Front on the same day (we really don’t know why we did that). But the atmosphere is like in Shaw. It didn’t fail to provide the personal space to have a good conversation with friends.

So, we took a lot of photos and no one can stop us from doing such again…Sooonnn!

And one of my friends said, “Hindi naman na ako nagsisi na nagpunta tayo ng Paranaque.”

I think, the picture doesn’t lie.

May: Sixth visit was for the Team Synergy sponsored by our company.

So, I have been visiting the place never been absent in any months of this year so far.:)

I hope they would never fail to continue providing the atmosphere of having a good experience with friends. 🙂

So far so good.

Pahabol, staffs are also kind.

Starbucks Coffee Festival

04.03.2016

Starbucks Philippines conducted its first ever one of a kind Coffee Festival. It’s an informative exhibit that talks about coffee. As far as I can remember there are four stations.

I and the Hashtag!

FIRST STATION: KALDI AND THE GOAT

The first station talks about the history of coffee.

A goat accidentally ate coffee berries and its keeper, Kaldi, noticed that it became hyperactive and energetic. Then after quite sometime, it has been used by monks to keep themselves awake during long prayers.

SECOND STATION: COFFEE SPECIES

This one’s quite interesting!

The barista said that there are 26 species of coffee. She only talked about 2 main types, the Arabica and Robusta. IT’S ONLY ARABICA that Starbucks uses because it has the highest quality. While, Robusta are usually used in instant coffee.

Arabic and Robusta can be differentiated by color

Another interesting fact is knowing that it’s only 10% of coffee cherries that is processed to become coffee. Based on what I can remember, the coffee bean is only 10% of the coffee cherry.

THIRD STATION: Where Do coffee come from?

Latin America. The nutty and cocoa flavors are definitely from this place.

Africa.  If you want the berries and citrus flavor, Africa is the place. Also it’s the place of coffee with strongest aroma.

Asia Pacific. Coffee of our own. Earthly and herb. Bold and assertive. 🙂

FOURTH STATION: Roast Spectrum

So, they have 3. Blonde RoastMedium Roast. and Dark Roast.

All I can say is, the milder the roast, the more aromatic the coffee bean is. 🙂

LOL! Seriously, what I learned in this station is that the caffeine content is not based on the roast.

Just a glimpse of the different aromatic coffee beans!

There was also coffee art, brewing, and other demonstration.

 

and arts that can’t be touched!
