Featured Filipino Dessert


Halo-halo is a popular cold Filipino dessert which is made from crushed ice, evaporated milk and a concoction of sweetened beans, banana, leche flan (creme caramel), coconut sport strings, kaong (sugar palm fruit), Nata de Coco (coconut gel), ube halaya, jackfruit slices, and topped with Ube (purple yam) ice cream.

The word Halo-halo literally means “mix-mix”, and that is in fact, how you should eat it.  While it’s very tempting to eat the toppings right away, the proper way to eat this dessert is to mix all the ingredients together.

Smoother, Bolder Coffee

This six-bean blend is complex, giving depth to its flavour and a warm spiciness to its aroma. A sweet coffee with a silky body, blueberry top notes and a rich, buttery finish perfectly makes up a well-rounded cup of espresso, but marries well with milk.

Featured Single Origin Coffee

Gesha, El Salvador, El Carmen Estate
Tropical berry notes with a spiced cocoa finish

El Carmen Estate is located at 1,300m above sea level in El Salvador’s Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range, one of Central America’s prime specialty coffee producing areas. The estate has been farmed by the Alfaro family for over a century.
The estate was founded in the middle of the 19th century when Antonio José Alfaro acquired a plot of land near the village of Ataco and started to produce coffee. The family places great emphasis on maintaining the identity of each lot. Four generations later, Antonio’s great grandson maintains the same passion for coffee, explaining, ‘The lots that come through our mill are like babies to us’.
