After a two-month long hiatus, finally, I was able to visit another cafe and revive my coffee-hunting page. My last entry was June 19, and I was only able to go out on September 15. My acne had worsen again, so I had to prioritize my skin health over this passion. Derma consultations aren’t cheap, so I had to make wise choices and put my passion project on a hiatus for a while.
Besides this, whenever I go to coffee shops (usually on a Thursday or a Friday), I would spend ten hours every day to work to make sure I still fulfill my 40 hours in a week. I realized, however, that I would still spend a significant amount of time working during my cafe day even when I already allotted that day for leisure. I still continued, but it got to a point that it drained me. I knew I had to step back. I didn’t want to go out for coffee just for content; this was supposed to be a hobby, not a requirement.
When things got a little better, I decided to visit a cafe near me to save on transportation, which was how I found Kalinaw Coffee Co.
How to Go to Kalinaw Coffee Co.
Ride a jeep going to Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall or Tropical and tell the driver to drop you off at Vista Verde. From the gate of Vista Verde, Kalinaw Coffee Co. is only a three- to five-minute walk.
What to Expect in Kalinaw Coffee Co.
Kalinaw Coffee Co. is a coffice, meaning there were sockets and available Wi-Fi network for its patrons. No wonder there were so many people at four o’clock of a Thursday. Both the first and the second floors were fully occupied. Good thing I was able to secure a seat.
Surprisingly, they also serve wine! It was a perfect cafe for the titos and titas of Manila who love drinking wine and coffee. Kalinaw merchandise was also available.
What to Eat in Kalinaw Coffee Co.
As I haven’t had my lunch that time, I had to order a meal. One of their best-sellers is their hungarian rice meal, which was worth PhP 140, and then I accompanied my rice meal with their iced caramel macchiato for PhP 140.
Hunger (and coffee craving) satisfied.
