I Love coffee… it’s very evident in my blog and even in my status in Facebook. I have always loved its aroma and the natural high I feel, sip after sip. I just couldn’t get enough! everyday when I get to work I always start my day with a cup of coffee.
Yesterday, Tart brought me to the Gallery in Mabolo CEBU and introduced me to KOPI ROTI. A coffee blend that was new yet at the same time familiar to my taste buds. I took the liberty of checking their concepts and what coffee they use.
“Kopi Roti as the name suggests, is an exciting new concept in the art of enjoying coffee blended to perfection.
The Kopi Roti concept began in Singapore many years ago when Kopi Tiams - the Malay word for coffee shop - started catering to a very demanding clientele, locals who knew how coffee should be blended the Asian way and who demanded nothing but the best at a reasonable cost.
No wonder the taste was so familiar, since the coffee they serve is more on ASIAN BLENDS. It reminded me of our traditional “SIKWATE”, this is a local Cebuano drink served hot made from freshly grind Cacao seeds.
Since history did tell us that
Philippines have had trade relations with our neighboring Asian countries even before colonized us. I wouldn’t be surprise that cacao trees/ seeds or even the finished product was traded. Spain
We went there around 11:30 pm, the ambiance of the place was great for me who wants to sip my coffee silently and have an EMO moment. So that’s what we did we talked a little but we just enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the place.
Well one minor thing though Kopi Roti closes at around 12mn, probably because the stores and restaurant in the gallery is close at that time. But you can stay as long as you like and the place is safe since there are security guards at the place. But still it would have been better if they close at around 2am at least you can still order another round of their nostalgic coffee.
