With the addition of their 90th outlet at the SM Light Mall, Bo’s Coffee is truly keeping the Filipino spirit alive by promoting homegrown origins serving customers different coffee flavors from different regions in the Philippines and offering other food and drink products produced by local entrepreneurs. The SM Light Mall branch is just a short walk away from Boni MRT Station in Mandaluyong City which opened last February 10. The following day, Bo’s Coffee also unveiled the newest outlet, making it their 91st, at the popular Ayala Terraces in Fairview, Quezon City.
“There has been a growing demand in the metropolis to open more cafes so we selected these two prominent locations to address those needs,” Coochy Mamaclay, Bo’s Coffee VP for Brand and Marketing, said.
Bo’s Coffee is a proudly Filipino-owned coffee shop that originated in Cebu City founded by Steve Benitez sharing his love affair with coffee since 1996. 30 outlets are located in Metro Cebu. Bo’s Coffee sources coffee beans locally from farmers from Sagada, Benguet, Mount Kitanglad in Bukidnon, Mount Matutum in Tupi, South Cotabato, and Mount Apo.
We discovered and had our first trip to Bo’s Coffee in Robinsons Galleria sometime in the late 90s and since then we’ve grown fondness to this coffee shop. It’s a small cafe nook, or kiosk, where we spend our coffee break from our then workplace just across the Ortigas mall. Last year, during our SM Christmas in the Philippines tour in SM City Fairview, we were able to see the new look and bigger outlet of Bo’s Coffee. This concept embraces a surrounding that represents a more homegrown tribute to local artistry and craft at its finest. Pretty much what you’ll expect when you visit the SM Light Mall and Ayala Terraces branches. The architectural and interior designs from the chandeliers conceived by world-famous designer Kenneth Cobonpue to the furnishings such as the chairs colorfully upholstered by ANTHILL Fabric Gallery, Mamaclay pointed out.
“We want everyone to feel the Bo’s Coffee experience as they look for a nook and haven where students, friends, and families can study, bond, and share stories in a cozy and feel-at-home atmosphere over their favorite local brew,” Mamaclay mentioned.
Aside from giving job opportunities for local coffee farmers, Bo’s Coffee have engaged in different partnerships that help change the lives of the people in different communities. “Each coffee shop serves as a window and platform for our homegrown partners, whose quality products may be unfamiliar to some. Among them are Tsaa Laya, bayani Brew (iced tea and beverages), and Theo and Philo (chocolates). In our vow to share the great Philippine coffee experience, every cup you sip also nurtures and cultivates social enterprises and builds communities and advocacy we take seriously,” she explained.
Bo’s Coffee’s expansion plan is off to a red-hot start this 201, and there seems no stopping them from going into that pace. There are plans to roll out more branches and they are eyeing to open their 100th store in Q1 2017 and the brand’s first international outlet will open its doors within the year.
