Bo's Coffee: The Home of Just Roasted Freshness and Coffee Goodness

I was glad to be invited to Bo's Coffee Blogger's meetup. So even if it was scorchin' hot yesterday,  I ducked out for a caffeine fix, keen to check out the cafe. Hot afternoon for coffee yet I believe it’s never too late for a frappe or coffee. After all it’s always morning somewhere in the world. :)

Needless to say, I was taken aback by the quality and variety offered at Bo's coffee. It's a great place for people watching and a latte. :) They also have an extensive selection of beans for you to take home.

For the record, Bo's coffee is now on its 16th year of serving Just Roasted Freshness, and it has come so far from its humble beginnings as a six-table kiosk in Cebu to being one of the country’s most successful coffee brands. They now have 57 branches in the Philippines.

Nothing is better than the smell of freshly roasted coffee. If you love the smell of freshly roasted coffee, (like me) you can visit their branch in Bonifacio High Street because they do have a roaster there. Whenever I smell freshly brewed coffee, I just stick my nose in and take a deep breath.

On to more important things, the quality and freshness of their locally-grown coffee beans shows the big difference from all other coffee shops. Its beans, mostly from Cordillera and Bukidnon, are delivered to its stores soon after roasting so that you can enjoy the distinctively bold, roasted flavour of Bo’s.

Today, Bo’s Coffee continuously grows with Mr. Benitez’s passion to bring world-class coffee experience to the country. Bo's Coffee looks forward to even more aggressive expansion in the coming years, both locally and abroad.

The Green Tea frappucino + Biscotti Amaretto blended frappes! Don't worry bout these frappes I sorted them out. They were delish. :)
I'm a daily frappe drinker because my sweet, loving bro who is a Store manager in Starbucks, never fails to bring a cup of coffee or frappe from Starbucks. I've tried them all and I must say, the taste and goodness of Bo's is pretty close to Starbucks' frappes and this one definitely hit the spot.

Love at first bite!

On a sweet note, I would personally recommend the Super Moist chocolate cake.  It definitely satisfied my sweet tooth. The chocolate is so decadent, perfectly  light, moist,  flavorful, and not too sweet. A slice of cake can be shared between two people, but if you're a dessert-fan like I am, you would attempt to devour the whole thing yourself!

Super Moist chocolate cake. Yummy in my tummy!
Seriously, this one went beyond a chocolate cake! Every bite was a biteful of chocolate, I was in sugar heaven. :)

Blueberry cheescake
Blueberry cheescake.. this is legit and it's one of their bestselling cakes! I guess I just have to try it and walk past countless opportunities to get my cheesecake fix here one of these days.

The Biscotti Amaretto is blended coffee with biscotti and Amaretto Syrup topped with whipped cream, drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with crushed crunchy biscotti. Perfect for summer!

Green tea frappe... how comforting!
As a green tea lover, I appreciate that they use authentic matcha green tea powder on their frappucino, instead of the typical syrup found at most coffee shops. It is creamy and rich, sweet and comforting.

Fruits & Nuts Trail mix
For runners and health buffs, try their Fruits & Nuts Trail mix. You might also want to try the sugar-free Coffee Vanilla Primo, Strawberry Freeze or Vanilla Freeze. Guiltless pleasures. :)

The atmosphere is delightfully satisfying and I had an awesome coffee shop experience. I love the fact that they use native wooden chairs and tables. Very Pinoy lang ang peg. It is located at 4th floor CyberZone, SM North annex, it's pretty small, but it's very clean and tidy. There are large windows overlooking outside of the mall which let in plenty of light in the day, so it didn't feel cramped at all.

The staff deserves special mention. They were not only goodlooking and refreshingly friendly, they seem genuinely pleased to see and serve customers.

The whole experience was lovely.  Everything was very affordable and I was all stuffed to the brim.  I believe a relaxing break is the key to the perfect cup of coffee and the best place to enjoy it is at Bo's coffee. Forgo your normal run to Starbucks, this place is about the same price, probably lower. And this place isn't over hyped, overpriced and overrated. Ok, now my bro's gonna kill me. Haha  ;p

Just took home one of these lovely mugs! Loved it!
Seriously though, this place brings a smile to my face and I'm already thinking of the next chance I'll have to stop by again! I might have a late night love affair with a slice of Oreo cheesecake and a hot cup of green tea.

So whether you need a morning pick-me-up or you are going in for coffee, cookies, cakes, or some other pastry that they sell, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy with friends over a hot cup of coffee or tag friends you love hanging out with!
