Bo’s Coffee, Cebu’s homegrown brew and coffee chain with 103 stores nationwide and 108 by the end of the year, pays homage to its roots with the launch of its first tribute store at their Capitol site, Osmeña Boulevard.
Since 1996, Bo’s Coffee has been serving fresh coffee made with handpicked Arabica coffee beans from Sagada, Benguet, Mount Kitanglad in Bukidnon, Mount Matutum in Tupi, South Cotabato, and Mount Apo, and Robusta beans from Cavite and other coffee highlanfs and regions in the Philippines.
They also support social enterprise by partnering by local micro- small entrepreneurs who have met local and global quality standards for their store interiors, products and merchandise such as Bayani Brew, Theo and Philo, Tablea, Agrea CocoSugar, Hope in a Bottle, Obrano Craft, Namana, Dusty Maroon, Funk Trunk Phil., Loudbastard, and Anthill.
The 300 sq. m. tribute store is a recognition of Philippine coffee and the brand’s humble beginnings in Cebu. It serves as a homage and form of gratitude to Bo’s Coffee stakeholders who have been pivotal to the brand’s growth from the farmers and entrepreneurs to the baristas and artists. The brand also aims to recognize the local community who has helped its growth for 23 years.
Its homegrown coffee menu and furniture from local artisans such as renowned industrial designer, Kenneth Cobonpue presents the best of the Philippines to local and foreign tourists. The interiors are decked in designs from the Bo’s Coffee archive collection such as the wicker table from their first store. Patrons can expect intricate coffee at the store’s experience bar, a communal space which celebrate the Philippine Coffee Origins. The store also features more menu options and lifestyle merchandise items and can seat up to 110 people.
Bo’s Coffee Capitol is open from 7 am to 1 am daily. In Cebu, Bo’s coffee can be found in 29 locations.
