Learn the Art of Coffee with Slow Brew Ph!

Hello po!
The most ardent cafe aficionado knows well that savoring the magic in his cuppa joe just ain't enough. This passion often translates to knowing and familiarizing himself with its slightest trivialities- just as a passionate lover to his paramour would.

Welcome to Slow Brew Ph- a pop up cafe that serves specialty coffee in which different brewing methods are highlighted.

Last December 10, 2016, coffee enthusiasts and bloggers were gathered in a room at the Level 3, Cinema Lounge in Century Mall, Makati, for a day of wholesome enjoyment of delicious coffee and learning more about it.

The Php 350 ticket for Slow Brew is inclusive of unlimited brew. But be warned- even the greatest caffeine junkie has a limit to the cups he can safely consume in a day- or face the dreaded consequences!

I got Bibingka (rice cake), a perfect partner to coffee, for just Php 25 each. This version by Lola's Best made me an instant fan!

It is absolutely yummy! Soft, moist and the salted egg and cheese is really pronounced.
