Caerus Specialty Coffee is a small neighborhood coffee shop that opened a couple of blocks from my parents house. Irene and I have been meaning to check the place out for a few weeks but never got around to going. We found the perfect excuse last week as we were killing time before going to pick Lauren up from school. Caerus Specialty Coffee is located in a new residential building with a few commercial spaces below, there’s a bike store and a nail spa beside it.
There’s a couple of parking spaces in front with a guard who can guide you if its full. We were lucky to get a space right in front, someone left a minute or two after we got there.
The door opens up to a coffee bar and pastry display on the right side with a couple of seats and a small coffee roaster sitting on the left corner.
There are a couple of seats facing the coffee bar with all sorts of coffee contraptions on display. A small table by the stairs is the only other seating available on the ground floor. The decor is quite rustic, like something you’d expect to find in the pine forests of Baguio.
Irene and I skipped the pastries because we just had a super filling lunch at King Chef so we just placed our coffee orders and headed to the 2nd floor.
The 2nd floor was really spacious with different chairs and even a comfy couch to while away the time and enjoy your caffeine fix. There also a separate smoking room to the side with around 4 tables. Irene and I both found the chairs really comfortable.
After a few minutes, they brought up our orders plus a small black and orange contraption. We were told it was a buzzer to get the attention of the staff on the 1st floor (nice). The thing I thought of when they served the coffee was that it would be out of this world if they served their coffee in Anthora cups to match their Greek signage.
Irene had her usual Latte (P135) while I had a Cappuccino (P115). I’m not sure what kind of beans they used but both cups of coffee were well made and delicious.
Caerus specialty coffee is a nice addition to the burgeoning coffee scene in Manila. I love these small shops, each one is different but all share the passion of serving great coffee.
