Business Opportunity Closed at a Second Wave Shop

“Open-minded ka ba? Tara, kape tayo!” (Are you open-minded? Let’s get some coffee!). That invite has been abused to death that it’s become a (Filipino) meme. I acknowledge that this article is about a year or two too late already, “business opportunity” meetings are not saturated in second wave coffee shops anymore.

Of course it’s coffee, coffee beans were brewed with hot coffee and then processed (by processed I mean it was dried) eventually leading to the powder/granules we all know. Therefore, that popular instant coffee company’s tag line a while back that there’s were made from “real coffee beans”? That’s a load of crap.

But considering it as actual Kape goes deeper than that. Three levels deep in fact: Continue reading “Instant Coffee, is it Kape?”
