Great News for Pinoy Gourmet Coffee Drinkers!

I have several friends who can’t go through the day without at least a cup of gourmet coffee from the expensive coffee shops they pass by every day. I couldn't help thinking how much money they would save in a year if they can make those kinds of concoctions at home.

And now they can! Last Thursday, I was invited to attend the product launch of Bialetti & Saeco at the GE Monogram Experience Center at Serendra. I was impressed at how easy it is to make one’s own gourmet coffee at home given the right coffee maker.

Mr. Norman Reynoso of Fabriano S.p.A., the official distributor of both Bialetti and Saeco, showed us the different types of Italian coffee makers they are offering to the Philippine market. He says the entry of these names assures the Filipino coffee aficionado of an attractive and durable piece that is a noteworthy investment in and out of the kitchen.

I see what he means. Although the Bialetti stovetop coffee makers initially looked pricey, I’m sure coffee lovers would be able to recoup their investment in a few short weeks given that a cup of gourmet coffee outside already costs P100+ each on average. Imagine having your coffee fix anytime you want at home!

The Moka Express, Bialetti’s staple product, comes in various styles to suit individual tastes – from the romantic to the minimalist to the playful. I like the cow printed Mukka Express best because of its cute design.

For offices or homes with lots of coffee lovers, there are the Saeco coffee machines that come in fully automatic and manual configurations. The designs are sleek and sophisticated. It’s a first for me to see an actual coffee machine that you can put whole coffee beans into. Saeco’s fully automatic version has its own grinder inside! Talk about having your coffee as fresh as you want it to be.

Now you can make delectable Italian coffee in the comfort of your own home via the remarkable quality and enchanting designs of Bialetti and Saeco. For more information, visit the GE Monogram Experience Center at the second floor in Serendra, Fort Bonifacio, or call 643-3456.
