Cafe Amaina finally opened its humble doors to people who love coffee. The people in Amadeo can now enjoy their manually brewed coffee while enjoying the fresh air. They aim to give a comfortable place to customers where they can relax and just enjoy the moment.
Cafe Amaina also adopted the slow bar concept which only uses manual brewing methods for their coffee. They manually brew their customers’ coffee directly on their table for Kape ni Ama to give them this new experience while also having a chance to personally connect with them.
The Story Behind Cafe Amaina
Cafe Amaina is a family project meant to give tribute to Baking and Agatona Batino to keep their memories alive. Baking and Agatona raised their family through coffee farming at Amadeo, Cavite. Amaina is from “ama” and “ina”, which is how their children and grandchildren refer to them. It is meant to be a place where people can gather comfortably, relax and enjoy good coffee and food – like how it used to be at Baking and Agatona’s house for their children and grandchildren.
The drinks were developed jointly by the grandkids of Baking and Agatona. There are food items that were developed by the grandkids with special guidance from their parents in incorporating traditional family recipes.
What To Try
1. Kape ni Ina
Kape ni Ina is a sweet and creamy coffee with a hint of caramel and hazelnut. It can be served hot or cold.
2. Kape ni Ama
Kape ni Ama is a brewed coffee. The unique part here is that the customer decides on the manual brewing method. Customers can choose from a variety of carefully selected coffee beans from different localities in the Philippines, including Amadeo.
3. Special Turon with Coffee Dip
The Special Turon tastes like home except that they gave it a twist. Their coffee dip makes it even more special.
This is one of the best churros I’ve tried! I love that it’s crispy and definitely not oily.
