Coffee Empire Opens its First Branch in Quezon City: Marks the Rise of the 3rd Wave Coffee Concept in the Philippines

Coffee enthusiasts and aficionados have all the reasons to rejoice as the Coffee Empire launches its first cafe in the country. It introduces the third wave coffee concept and aspires to the highest form of culinary appreciation for coffee. "The preparation of this well-loved beverage has become an art. Every nifty little detail is specifically calculated--from the source of raw coffee beans, to the roasting process all the way to the final brew. With Coffee Empire, you can be assured to experience some of the finest coffee of the world alongside our very own grown coffee beans," shared Coffee Empire's General Manager Ernest Joggler R. Martin. 

Situated along the busy commercial district of West Avenue in Quezon City, the Coffee Empire (an 800 square meter property) offers a wide range of high-quality, hand-picked coffee beans roasted to perfection and served as its peak where excellent tastes, texture and aroma is achieved. Enjoy the very best and finest coffee from both local and international single origins such as Benguet Atok, Sagada, Guatemala Fancy Antigua Santo Domingo, Brazil Ceraddo SS-FC, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe OCR, and Columbia RFA Organic, among others. Aside from the selection of coffee beverages, the Coffee Empire also serves specialty drinks like wine, cocktails and craft beers. 

The Coffee Empire had this cozy ambiance that guests can look forward to. They also serve an array of mouthwatering dishes with modern comfort foods comprised of various salads, soups, finger foods, mains and desserts to satiate their customers. Multi-awarded Chef AC Agra refined the delectable dishes with Asian, Spanish and American influences while making use of French techniques with the aim to satisfy customers with a complete sensory experience. 

Going inside the Coffee Empire is an experience in itself. One can smell the aroma of freshly grounded, roasted and brewed coffee beans wafting in the air. The robust flavors of coffee with innovative and modern twist in their coffee drinks should not be missed. Grandiose dishes were presented with the Coffee Empire's delectable signature dishes. They gave diners a taste of flavors which started off with potato and ham croquettes and roasted chicken lollipops, pesto pasta, a selection of cheese and fruits, and some fresh greens to go with it. They also gave guests their Vanilla Nitrogen Cake--a first of its kind, where guests had fun as white smoke comes out of their mouth while eating them.

During the Coffee Empire grand opening, they held an art latte competition by skilled homegrown baristas perfecting the rosetta leaf. The lone winner from the said contest brought home a brand new iphone5  while other participants received consolation prizes as well. 

Overall, The Coffee Empire is a venue where one can enjoy all the wonders of coffee from here and around the world. It had all the great things to offer: great ambiance, wines, salads, finger foods, mains, desserts--anything that pleases even the most discriminating palate.
