Coffee Project: Prettiest Coffee Shop Ever!

Like a lot of people nowadays, coffee is the life blood that fuels my life. I can’t imagine my day without beginning with a cup coffee. Every time I wake up, my body is like a rusty machine which asks: insert coffee to begin. When I was working the night-shift, it was the only thing that could keep me awake so I can perform my duties and me last for the day. 

But to be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with coffee. I’ve tried several times to break up with coffee since stress, mixed with caffeine, isn’t a good combination for as it cause me to have acid reflux. But no... I can’t and I probably won’t break up with coffee. No matter how much it is sometimes bad for me or it hurts me. It’s like a drug, you know it’s bad for you, but you can’t give it up. 

Moreover, we also know very well that a lot of good conversations happens over coffee. It has the power to connect people and create a community. That’s why you’ll often hear people asking “do you want to have coffee sometime” or “come on let’s have coffee.” When I was in college, my friends and I love spending pour free time to chat or study there. This is because most coffee shops are the coziest places around.

But The Coffee Project revolutionized that idea of a cozy coffee shop to another level. This locally grown coffee chain has been hailed as Philippines' most Instagram-able coffee shop. And I kid you not, it is by far the prettiest coffee shop I’ve ever set foot on! This 2-storey coffee shop is like a Southern-American country home filled with flowers and vintage decors. I just love the vintage Japanese bikes hanging on the walls, the bronze pieces, the Edison light bulbs, the bird cages etc. It has all the rustic shabby chic vibes that I am so into.

 On every wall or corner you can also find written quotes related to coffee or just any witty and funny quotes; so I took photos of my faves. Goodness gracious, I can stay here all day! Especially that they offer free wi-fi which you can find your access password on your receipt. Most spaces are also communal areas so if you’re up for meeting new friends, you’ll surely love here. There are spaces which gives a little more privacy too. Yep, they have taken consideration of you, you introvert you!

The Coffee Project has a carefully chosen selection of coffees from around the world. Their drink menu is quite vast and so hopefully you can find something that you can fall in love with. They also offer a range of cakes, pastries and other quick eats. The friendly baristas will provide you with those disc indicators that vibrates once your order is ready for pick up at the counter. 

My blogger friend, Bettina and I went here after an event one Wednesday afternoon, just to make time pass and catch up a bit and here are what we got:

Coffee Indochine - hot Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk

Ca Phe Sua Da - robust and aromatic Vietnamese coffee on the rocks (iced) with coffee jelly and topped with whipped cream.

Red Velvet Cake - red colored chocolate layer cake, layered with white cream cheese or icing

I love both coffees that we tried: Coffee Indochine is slightly bitter and sweet, the Ca Phe Sua Da was strong as expected from a Vietnamese coffee and the Red velvet cake was also good but quite lacking in the cream cheese flavor. Since this Coffee Project QC East branch is just near where I live, I will likely go back here because I still want to try their other drinks and cakes also perhaps their pasta dishes, rice meals, sandwiches, salads and pizzas. And for sure, I will take a ton of pictures again, even if I already did that on my first visit. Coffee Project is my new favorite coffee shop now, most definitely!
