Coffee Empire

Top choice cafe in Manila

A chic industrial open-plan warehouse setup with hessian sacks of single-origin green beans on display in the glassed-in 'green room', plus drawers of roasted beans for sniffing. Excellent food, including huge breakfasts, gourmet sandwiches and New Orleans–style baby back ribs. You can observe roastings on Wednesdays and Saturdays and they also do cuppings (check the website).
