Blending History and Innovation
Following the successful opening of its Mitsukoshi branch in July, Arabica Philippines is set to ignite the coffee scene once again with its brand-new flagship store in the vibrant heart of BGC, Taguig.
Designed by renowned Japanese architectural experts no.10 of Nomura Co. Ltd., this space not only celebrates the Japanese coffee brand but also honors the richness of Manila’s history.
The flagship store weaves together elements of the past and future, seamlessly merging the allure of modern urban landscapes with the charm of traditional brick-made houses from old-town Manila.
Step inside, and you’ll be immersed in a captivating blend of these contrasting yet harmonious features.
However, the real gem of the Arabica Philippines flagship store is its unique roastery room located on the mezzanine.
Beyond the kitchen counter, the roasting room cleverly extends from a massive brick wall, creating a stunning visual illusion.
CEO Karen Tui expresses her excitement in welcoming Filipino coffee aficionados to this remarkable space, “We take immense pride in the Philippines being recognized as an international coffee hub, attracting global brands like % Arabica to establish their flagship store here. This is our gift to the passionate Filipino coffee community, who have supported us from the very beginning. We’re thrilled to share this unique experience with everyone.”
Arabica Philippines is on a mission to bring its unique coffee experience to every corner of the country, with plans for more branches and stores in strategic locations.
The flagship store will have a soft opening for the public on Nov. 18, 2023 promising a coffee adventure that seamlessly blends tradition and innovation.
