I love coffee, I love tea. I love the java jive and it loves me. Coffee and tea and the jiving and me. A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!
The first time I heard this song was during The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince days. I really love that South Korean television series because of Gong Yoo and of course, coffee. I love seeing the coffee shop they built, the coffee machines especially the latte art. I guess coffee shops and coffee makes me feel relaxed and happy.
If I’m not mistaken I was around six when I started to appreciate the smell of morning coffee. Like everyone else in the world, my abuelito and my abuelita would also always make one cup during breakfast. I was able to taste the coffee my abuelito makes when he was still living. But it was only in college when I was really allowed to drink a cup of coffee.
Now, I drink more than that and I even enjoy drinking teas (including milk teas). I also take my abuelita with me to different coffee shops when we’re both free. The last coffee shop we visited was Café Amazon. Have you been there?
Café Amazon Philippines
PTT Public Company Limited, Thailand’s largest gas and energy company established Café Amazon in 2002. Yes, it’s a non-oil business. But with the vision of offering a full circle service hub, a cafe is best suited for the lifestyle of the present generation.
Fast forward to 2016, PTT Philippines introduced Café Amazon in the country by opening its first branch at the oil firm’s biggest station – PTT SCTEX. They also opened branches in PTT Dasmarinas as well as in PTT Pulilan. But for their fourth branch, they opened a standalone Café Amazon inside SM City North EDSA, one of the largest shopping mall in the Philippines.
I haven’t seen their PTT branches but I do love the one at SM North. It was a breath of fresh air and a beautiful sight because of the cafe’s “Taste of Nature” concept. Not only where they able to offer a cozy green atmosphere, but also serve quality drinks made with carefully selected green beans.
I ordered one of their iced coffee for my abuelita (but I also got to try it). It’s really creamy and not too sweet. The blend did not overpower the taste of coffee which is good because it’s coffee to begin with. My abuelita is very sensitive to food and drinks but she said that the drink was light in the stomach. Thus, she enjoyed drinking it.
Oh by the way, their parent company is celebrating their 40th Anniversary. To celebrate, Café Amazon is currently offering two new flavors – PTT Blue Sparkling and Amazon Green Latte. I ordered the latter for myself.
This drink is my new favorite! The combination of flavors; not to mention, the sweetness is perfect. If you get the chance, order this one or, try the PTT Blue Sparkling. Then let me know in the comment section below how it tastes. 🙂
