Matador Network online magazine has named Manila in its article “11 of the world’s best cities for coffee lovers,” where Manila was ranked number two.
The article said: “Third wave coffee is on the rise in Manila, the sprawling, hurried capital of the Philippines. Duck and Buvette, located at Shangri-La Plaza, is among the third-wave coffee shops sprouting up all over the city, serving V60 pour-overs of Intelligentsia beans alongside fully-composed dishes like duck confit and candied bacon.”
“Refinery follows a similar model, adding flavored coffee drinks – an orange-infused cappuccino, for instance – to its roster, on top of more traditional espresso drinks,” it added.
“Toby’s Estate, an Australian export that has also spread through New York, has an outpost in Salcedo Village. Craft Coffee Revolution, Yardstick, and at least half a dozen more are leading the charge, bringing latte art rosettes and café culture to the 25.5 million people of Metro Manila.”
Topping the magazine’s list is Sacramento, with Vancouver at third place. Dublin and Taipei completing the Top 5.
Other cities mentioned in the article are Oslo, Denver, Paris, Moscow, Bangkok and Auckland.
