Barely 10 years ago when you can still smoke in coffee shops inside a mall, one the first coffee shop i used to hang out at was Figaro in SM Manila. I just love the hot cafe latte while reading some Universal Testing Machine hand me down notes. Their shop in Shangri La was also my stop before heading to work in San Miguel Avenue.
I have been a fan of coffee since I dont know when and yeah, 3 cups of coffee a day completes my routine. I have tasted different brews from one part of the world to another, from instant 3 in 1 to Alamid Coffee blends. I have to say, Figaro’s coffee has always been one of my favourite place to have a hot cup on a rainy day or cooling down during summer with their smoothies.
Luckily, they participated in the recent blogapalooza, an event for bloggers and business to meet half way and expand the netizens horizons of what’s new. I was thrilled when I was offered a cup of their freshly brewed coffee. Though it was a little warm inside due to the volume of attendees, hey, i have a dance competition later that day so i need that extra delicious cup of coffee! lol. Anyway, we were also treated with their new line of sweets specially made this season.
