(Philippine Tatler) From beans and pods to fresh brews, uplift your spirit with these caffeine favourites that can be sent right to your doorsteps
Whether you enjoy brewing your own or want something ready-to-drink, there’s definitely a cup, a bottle, or a pack that you can order in this time of uncertainty. Check out where you can get these coffee “essentials” and indulge in that familiar aroma you’ve been longing for.
If you are looking for single-origin coffee beans, check out Bluesmith's curated range from all over the world: from Brazil, Ethiopia, and Panama. From the Philippines, single-origin selections include high-quality beans from Libona, Bukidnon; as well as Bansalan and Mt. Apo in Davao del Sur. There are also a variety of indulgent blends on offer such as the Tagore (dark roasted 70% washed Arabica and 30% Robusta); Ungri 100% Arabica medium-dark roast blend; and the signature Bluesmith Blend, a medium-roast combination of Panama Sta. Clara and Brazil Machado that reminds of the sweet notes of honey, candied peach, and dark caramel.
For convenience, Bluesmith's cold brew is also available in 250ml, 500ml, and one-litre bottles. Made by steeping coarsely-ground speciality-grade single-origin coffee in room temperature for 24 hours—a process that results in the extraction of a range of flavour compounds—this cold brew has a distinct profile compared to traditional hot brews.
Bluesmith also offers cold brew concentrates, which are to be diluted with water in a ratio of 1:3.
