I had a weekender back home to visit our Tagaytay abode and started cleaning and placing some initial stuff. The weather was very inviting to rest and sleep and of course eat and.. coffee! When it is cold, I tend to double up my intake of coffee and so I didn’t, inevitably, pass up this chance to get a local one. Couple of hours away from Tagaytay is one known coffee farming place called Batangas. Any local would know that Batangas is known for its coffee named Barako. I love Kapeng Barako because of its strong distinct taste, bold and rich and usually not so acidic.
We passed by this place called Brewed Awakening and luckily they are serving Barako so I had one while mom had her Hot Chocolate made from Tablea which is home grown cocoa bars that we usually melt and boil during New Year’s Eve. 🙂
And so these hot drinks did not fail us..
The beans of the coffee that we had is called Liberica and I would say it has a bit of similar taste to Robusta which is my favorite of all due to its chocolatey, low acidity level. As you can see from the photo, they also serve local dishes which I will blog separately. 🙂 Til next cup!
