This was the only bag of coffee we brought home from Manila.
Since we’ve had a Nespresso machine, we limit buying coffee beans to just one bag at a time. Since we don’t drink coffee everyday, the supply of coffee at home had to be managed well so they don’t go stale.
On my last day in Manila, I stopped by Bo’s Coffee to have a quick “me” time and bought a bag of Sagada Coffee to take home with us. I vacuum-packed the bag and only let it breathe two weeks ago. The aroma of coffee beans were heavenly the moment I opened it.
The good thing about coffee beans is that I get to share it too. I shared half of it to my friend so she can have a taste of Sagada Coffee. She gets to have the bag while I store the coffee beans in a glass container. The coffee-themed sticky note went perfectly well to what’s inside the container.
Something about Sagada:
Sagada is a place in the northern part of Philippines located in the centre of Cordillera region. It is a popular destination for travelers who are either thrill seekers or nature lovers because of it’s maejestic mountains and natural attractions.
Sagada Coffee is part of Bo’s Coffee‘s Philippine Origins line which celebrates Philippines’ culture and great coffee. Drinking Sagada Coffee is a way to getting to know the place thru its flavour profile.
Sagada Coffee has a balance of sweet and nutty flavour with hints of chocolate and tobacco. I personally describe this coffee as “gentlemanly sweet”, a perfect drink on a lazy afternoon of leisure.
Mornings with Bo’s Coffee
Napoli. Strong and intense flavours from a blend of Arabica from South America, Africa and Asia and Robusta that gives a hint of smoky notes. It has a woody aroma and nuances of dry black tea leaf. This is slightly bitter as the beans were roasted longer.
The Coconut Variations was a lovely blend. If you have noticed from past foodie entries, I have a thing for coconut and I’m glad that Nespresso did their Coconut Variations pretty well. The minute I placed its pod inside the machine, the sweet aroma of Coconut filled the room.
I love the Coconut Variations as it was like I’m enjoying fresh coconut from the shell. It’s very reminiscent of my other home, the Philippines. It’s perfectly intense and rich.
Each of the Variations are 100% of natural origin and contain only roast and ground coffees mixed with natural flavourings that free from food allergens. All the Variations Grand Cru are blended with the smoothness of Grand Cru Livanto and has an intensity level of 6 (on a scale of 1-10). They are only available for at least 8 weeks (or until supply lasts) so visit your nearest Nespresso Boutique or order online.
