Key Service18-hour cold brew infusion
Address4th floor, SM Megamall B, Metro Manila, PH
Websitehttps://www.facebook.com/nitro7.coffee/
Phone282601041
Emailinfo@nitro7.coffee

Nitro 7’s coffee is brewed with single-origin Ethiopian Arabica beans and nitrogen, which shortens the brewing time to 18 hours. This increases the caffeine content by approximately 30% but also lessens bitterness and ammonia flavors. The next day, the Nitro 7 team infuses their cold brew with nitrogen gas. This creates a foamy top that gives the appearance of a Guinness-style beer yet doesn’t make it taste like one! Additionally, this process thickens texture while mildly sweetening your cup of joe.

Key Differentiators:

  • Nitrogen-infused coffee
  • Unique flavor profile
  • High caffeine content

Customer’s Review:

Their bottled Nitro Cold Brew is one of the best bottled coffee Manila I have ever had. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and rich – it’s hard to stop drinking. Highly recommend!

Another coffee shop just opened within a 2km radius from my place and this one is right along my favorite bike route, Barangka, San Rafael climb. A minimalist coffee shop, it definitely is a place that will brighten your day. I tried Miss Saigon and was not disappointed. They just need a bike rack, and this would definitely be a great stop before, in between or after a ride. They serve refreshing teas too!

13) Habitual Coffee

Key ServiceThird-wave specialty bottled coffee
AddressPaseo Heights, Salcedo Village, L.P. Leviste Street, Makati, 1230 Metro Manila
Websitehttps://habitualcoffee.ph/
Phone(02) 8833 9556
Operating HoursDaily 8AM–5PM

The handwritten labels on Habitual Coffee’s Bottled Iced White are oddly charming. But it’s not just the packaging that draws us in; this beverage immediately stands out from the rest for its distinguished flavor profile.The coffee beans they use change with the seasons—for our bottle, Mount Malepunyo Liberica Red Honey coffee beans were used. They make for a great, robust sensation that’s also nutty (think roasted almonds and edamame), earthy, as well as fruity (we can’t pinpoint exactly what fruit we’re getting, but it tastes ripe and slightly tangy but not acidic).

Key Differentiators:

  • Seasonal coffee beans
  • Nutty, earthy and fruity flavor
  • Handwritten labels for a personalized touch

Customer’s Review:

Espresso and cafe latte taste stronger than Starbucks, far stronger then The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Highly recommend a mind-fresh option in the afternoon.
