I was a lucky coffee lover who had the opportunity to attend Bo’s Coffee Appreciation Session last week. I confessed, I used to have more than 6 cups of coffee when I was working in the corporate world. Coffee was part of my daily routine from breakfast or even before going to bed. After all those years that I’m addicted to coffee, I never had the chance to scrutinized them, as long as I have a good cup of coffee I’m fine. During our mini session (which I really enjoyed!) we were taught about its color, smell, brewing techniques and actual tasting (without any cream and sugar).

As “Your Homegrown Brew”, Bo’s coffee’s point of pride is that all of its coffee beans are sourced locally from highland farmers in Mount Matumtum in Tupi, South Cotabato, Mount Kitanglad in Bukidnon, Sagada and Benguet in the Mountain Province and Mount Apo in Davao. All these choices are available in “Pour Over and French Press (P125.00)” for dine-in or in bags that you can brew at home.
- Matutum: berry like and spicy with notes of cardamom and camphor
- Kitanglad: light and nutty with floral undertone
- Sagada: sweet, nutty and well-balanced with hints of leather and fresh tobacco
- Mt. Apo: sweet and earthy with low acidity
- Benguet: well-balanced with herbal and wine notes
A good cup of Bo’s Coffee is equivalent to carefully handpicked, single-origin beans from our own mother land. Surprisingly it is easy to make a great cup without even using a coffee maker. I enjoyed this mini-coffee session so much and I was inspired to follow the easy steps given by our coffee master. First, bring your water to boil and let it sit for a few minutes. If you’re using a paper filter, make sure to rinse it with the hot water to get rid of the papery taste. Second, also rinse your glass container or mug with hot water, this can maintain the “warm” temperature of your coffee. Third, pour your ground coffee inside the paper filter. There’s no standard coffee and water ratio because it will always depend on how strong or light you want your coffee to be. Lastly, begin pouring the water continuously in small circles on your coffee grounds.
Tada! Your delicious home-brewed coffee is ready to serve!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Bo’s Coffee has a wide choices of belly filling meals too. Bo’s Big Breakfast Club Palate (P295.00), slices of bacon, mini franks, home-made corned beef, scrambled egg with cheddar cheese and three slices of bread.
Sneaking bacon inside the sandwich, with a light crisp and consistent crunch from the lettuce. Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato (P205.00) is surprisingly big for its price.
I don’t know why Bo’s Coffee is so generous with bacon, Bacon Pesto (P195.00) is available all day long.
Mango Cheesecake (P140.00), so creamy and delicious with big chunks of ripe mangoes that adds a natural sweetness to this dessert.
By the way, this fully Filipino-owned coffee shop will make the South people happy as it opened its newest outlet along Aguirre Street inside the busy neighborhood of BF Homes Parañaque. The interior of Bo’s Coffee also serve as a platform for our local artistry and craft at its finest, the eye-catching chandelier was designed by Kenneth Cobonpue, a world-famous designer.
I fell in love with their couches that were upholstered in hand-woven fabrics by the ANTHILL Fabric Gallery (Cebu).
