Philippine coffee (locally sourced coffee) can compete with coffees from other parts of the world … this is something that most people do not seem to be aware of. Most filipinos are aware of the barako coffee from Batangas, known for its kick and flavorful aroma. A few are familiar with the Bukidnon coffee grown by the trancendental monks.
And then there is Bo’s Coffee — a staunch supporter of homegrown coffee, this Christmas they are promoting the coffee of Benguet.
Christmas Treat at Bo’s Coffee
This Christmas season try out the Christmas offering of Bo’s Coffee.
The Christmas Beverage
Given a choice between hot or cold brewed coffee I often opt for the cold brew. My reason? I’ve burned my tongue more times than I can count when drinking freshly brewed hot coffee. 😀 I guess it is safe to say I’m not very patient, hehehe.
This made Bo’s Coffees Benguet Minty Cold White Brew the perfect drink for me. Benguet coffee is not very acidic and the sprig of mint made this iced beverage extra refreshing.
Iced coffees are often sickly sweet. In contrast, the Benguet Minty Cold Brew’s sweetness level was right on the money. As my cousin, Teddy Boy would have said when he was a kid … not to sweet, not too bitter, just right on the groove.
The Christmas Cake
To the Filipino family Christmas = queso de bola. And most Christmas celebrations come with cheesecake. Therefore, it makes so much sense to make a cheesecake made with Queso de bola.
Queso de bola is a sharp, hard cheese, wrapped in red wax often served with ham at noche buena and other Christmas parties. Made into a cheesecake, this luscious dessert is tart and sweet at the same time.
In my personal opinion, the Queso de Bola Cheesecake could even be too sweet which is why it pairs up perfectly with the Benguet Minty Cold White Brew. Try it yourself and let me know what you think.
Introducing: The Bo’s Coffee Starter Kit
The Bo’s Coffee starter kit contains the following:
- clear glass cup wrapped in a cosy
- V60 dripper
- paper filters
- booklet with recipes inside
- a small pouch of coffee grounds
- gift bag made of indigenous material like a sack cloth with Bo’s logo stitched on it
It will be available for sale early next year. In the meantime, how can we avail of this kit?
Download the Bo’s Coffe app on the Appstore and Google Play.
The Bo’s Coffee app can be downloaded from both the appstore and on Google Play.
The app is akin to a stamp card or sticker book. With every visit where we purchase food or a drink worth P250 we show the app to the barista and they “shoot” the barcode to register the sale. Each registered sale is equivalent to one voucher used plus points!
On our 10th voucher we get a free Bo’s Coffee cup. On the 15th voucher we can get the Starter Kit … for free! Yey! Yes, I said free!
The stamp card concept is not new. Many establishments do this … from sandwiches, donuts, chinese restaurants … it is their way of tracking loyal customers.
Whether you are a loyal customer or just trying it out, make your way to Bo’s Coffee this holiday season and try out their holiday offerings.
