Summer Kape

#summerkape #cocotosestate #shareyourkape

Those following me on Instagram (@shareyourkape) probably have seen that I was a tad bit too eager to pull the trigger on buying home brewing equipment, not to mention buying coffee beans frequently. Now that I’m working from home, I can’t rely on Baristas to prepare me good coffee anymore due to lockdown and the need to follow social distancing protocols.

Wait up, just want to create a time stamp. At this moment when I finished setting up this blog and started writing this article, there are 56 followers of @shareyourkape on Instagram. I guess you can call this a “spin-off” (I am a finance major after all) of a food-centric blog.

Costa Coffee share your kape

A heart? A rosetta? A Fern? A rorschach test?

So why share your kape? Why not? I drink coffee almost every day. I like sharing it. Why create an Instagram page (and now a blog) dedicated to coffee? Do I want to stop bad coffee? No. I mean the first article features coffee and food from a Costa Coffee. (Which is not bad, but highly commercialized). Continue reading “Kape is Filipino for Coffee”
