I learned about Nitro 7 Coffee & Bar during PitStop’s media launch in 2017. I think they were just called Nitro 7 back then and they are Philippines’ first nitrogen-infused cold-brew coffee and tea bar! The Coffee & Tea Bar Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar actually started in 2016. They are a concept bar that operates a new technology in coffee and tea preparation. They brew their premium coffee beans in cold temperature for 8 hours, infuse it with nitrogen gas, and serve it in tap like draft beer. I was really amazed by that nitrogen gas thing and remember that there were dessert shops who use that, too. Going back to the point. After drinking their coffee, I never forgot the taste. So I would pass by that area just to buy a cup from them.
Don’t get me wrong. I love and need coffee in my life but this is my first time visiting The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. In fact, I rarely visit coffee shops. I actually already have a place I visit from time to time; not to mention, we have a coffee maker and a French press at home plus the occasional 3-in-1 coffee mix. Look, I’m not a barista. I’m aware that there is a right way to make coffee but I enjoy making my own cup at home. It’s fun, rewarding and not so expensive. But this does not mean that I’m not interested in visiting different coffee shops. I love the smell of fresh-made coffee (and tea) so I am bound to be attracted to them. It’s just that I didn’t have a lot of chance to visit The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. So when I finally did, I did not hesitate!
Oh, yes! Your North girl travelled to Pasig City just to try Draft Restaurant & Brewery. You have probably seen posts about this place and just like you, I too, am curious. Plus, I haven’t been to Ayala Malls The 30th so this is a win-win situation for us both. 🙂 Moving on, I brought my family here for a quick New Year lunch. And boy, let me tell you that our travel was worth it! Draft Restaurant & Brewery did not disappoint. Ready to read all about it? Here we go!
