EP 10: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

So we are adding a few more episodes in this mini series as there are a couple of coffee brewers that aren’t featured. And with the timing comes a couple of possible interruptions, like the twins in this case! 😀 In this episode, the…

EP 9: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

Who loves camping? In this episode, we feature the Moka Pot; another classic coffee maker that is an Italian icon. From experience, it is a good camping companion too! And that is illustrated in the video with the use of a portable gas stove….

EP 7: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

The Chemex was invented by a chemist named Peter Schlumbohm. When this brewer came under the Palakape’s radar, he just had to buy it! First, this glass hour-glass shape carafe with a wooden handle just speaks beauty and class. It also struck a nerdy…

EP 6: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

The Phin, these days a mark of Vietnamese coffee tradition, is a simple metal filter assembly. This was the first brewing apparatus that the Palakape owned, after a trip to Vietnam in 2016. So it gives him good memories of coffee discovery every time…

EP 5: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

Just rounding up all we have to say about the Aeropress in this episode. (We know, that brewer again!) Get an idea of how you can play around the conditions till you get your preferred cup. This Palakape really prefers his drink stronger, with…

EP 4: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

The Aeropress is such a good kit that allows for “customization” even for just black coffee. One way to use it is by the inverted method, as demonstrated in this episode.  The Palakape also touched upon the pressure added when brewing via Aeropress. The…

EP 3: Semi-interrupted Coffee Mornings

Have you ever not followed a user manual?  In this episode, the Palakape’s most favorite manual brewer is featured: the Aeropress. Oddly, he never followed its user manual before.  That’s because he just adapted what was demonstrated in the barista class where he first…

EP 1: Semi-Interrupted Coffee Mornings

When the first video recordings for the series were shot, the Palakape’s nephew was at the scene, curious about the activity.  The little kid is usually like that when he’s in the mood to check his uncle brewing coffee.  To add to that, there…

Semi-Interrupted Coffee Mornings

Brewing your own coffee can make drinking it, better.  We are preparing a simple mini series, where we show how to brew coffee manually using the personal brewers collected by one Palakape. Making coffee in the backyard, the Palakape encounters a few interruptions from…

Palakape – It’s a Lifestyle

For some people, coffee is not just a drink, but a way of life.  Happy International Coffee Day!  What is coffee to you? In this video: believe it or not, such is a typical coffee time for one palakape, LOL  

Leaving the Park, Listing the Pluses

So it came to an end… quickly. The last blog entry was more than 6 months ago, about us putting up a stall at a food park.  Unfortunately, we couldn’t sustain our stay there.  We were only able to ride the wave for some…

The Food Park bandwagon? We jumped on one BTW

Is it just a bandwagon, or will food parks be here to stay? Food parks are a thing in the Philippines recently (or in Metro Manila at least).  They are sprouting everywhere!  They seem to work for Filipinos.  With a laid back, non-intimidating atmosphere,…
