Every waking up deserves a cup of coffee. Most people, coffee lovers or not, begin the day with a fresh brew. Coffee energizes and startles the senses and it is the perfect drink to prepare you for a full day. For all we know, we grew up knowing that the breakfast table couldn’t be complete without a cup and maybe, another refill of this deliciously earthy and bitter dark liquid. And when one thinks of ending the day with a warm brew, coffee’s purpose becomes an irony in itself: what wakes you up in the morning is the same that lulls you to calmness at night.
In a country where people are fuelled by coffee, the need for a caffeine fix has been characterized by the increasing demand to consume sachets after sachets of instant coffee. Funny as it may sound, but this street dictum about coffee – “where there is hot water, there is coffee,” is very true. Coffee seems to be omnipresent and you can definitely find your favorite cup anywhere.
For the discriminating palates, a cup of coffee is more than hot water, coffee powder, sugar, and creamer. The need for caffeine accedes to the idea that a cup of coffee is a product of a tedious process where one thinks beyond roasting, grinding, and brewing. Ultimately, the quality of beans dictates the quality of coffee.
The internet offers us innumerable merchants selling coffee. We’ve seen sellers of whole and ground beans, bottled coffee, drip, cold brew, coffee in teabags, and almost every creative preparation possible for commercialization. While looking for the perfect roasted beans, we’ve come across Cupparoma Coffee Wholesaling (@cupparoma.mnl). The company has a hefty selection of coffee beans – Robusta, Arabica, Liberica, and Excelsa – offering varying caffeine content, taste profiles, and acidity levels.
What thrilled us and poked our interest upon seeing the menu is the select choice of Philippine coffee beans originating from Lipa, Bansalan, Sultan Kudarat, Candelaria, and Davao! We didn’t even have a hint that these communities grow their own coffee, except for Lipa, Batangas. We’re delighted to know that Cupparoma prioritizes our local farmers and that the business is founded on the mission of championing locally-grown coffee.
Of course, we’ve had several cups! We tried different coffee selections from Cupparoma’s menu and we particularly enjoyed the ever-famous Philippine coffee – kapeng barako. We love its unique, bold taste with a long-lasting ripe berry-toned flavor profile. Cupparoma’s barako (belonging to Coffea Liberica species) is a delicious digression from your usual and familiar everyday coffee (which is either Robusta or Arabica).
If you are a busy person who’s always on the go, brewing your coffee can be a bit taxing. Thankfully, Cupparoma offers convenience through its Coffee in Tea Bags (5s) and Coffee Drip Box (10 bags) available in Robusta, Barako, Arabica and assorted variants.
The holiday season is all in the air and we have been feeling its vibe since the “ber months” started. Like what we always say, “Christmas is just around the corner” and most of us have started making a list of people we want to give gifts to. If you’re looking to give presents to family and friends who love coffee and are in dire need of premium coffee beans, Cupparoma’s menu can help you tick many boxes in your shopping list. The good news is, you don’t have to choose between Arabica, Excelsa, Barako (Liberica) or Robusta because Cupparoma made our lives easier by creating the Sampler Box – a combination four main coffee variants beautifully packaged in a black window box accentuated with dried flowers, paper fillers, and paper ribbons. It’s beautiful, artistic, and gift-worthy.
