The glorious cup is then handed to you, guaranteed fresh, original, and delicious. You take the first sip and experience the fullness of its flavor.
Inside the Pivo Praha restaurant in Angono Street, you will find a hidden gem in Poblacion, Makati City. A Japan-based franchise in the Philippines, Coffee Tonya offers a diverse selection of coffee beans, tea leaves, coffee equipment, food and drinks. It is the first establishment in the country to offer everything coffee-related—from brewing equipment to freshly-roasted products. From the word Tonya, you may initially perceive it as a coffee shop that is named after a female. In fact, Tonya is actually a Japanese word for wholesale. Originally, the store's concept was to sell wholesale goods. As of present time, their products can either be ordered online or purchased at the shop. This whole idea was able to capture the hearts of coffee enthusiasts and aficionados around the metro.
Aside from having a wide range coffee beans with over 50 varieties from all over the world, Coffee Tonya also sells beans for you to roast at the comfort of your own home. The whole unroasted coffee beans are grouped according to variety, country, level of acidity, bitterness, sweetness, body, and aroma. Another major plus is that they roast coffee beans on the spot for each order they receive. Internationally and locally, their beans are roasted and ground to suit the customers' preferences. You may also have your coffee customized according to your desired taste. There are a few variants of beans in the Philippines that may be difficult to find locally such as the ones grown in the northern areas, especially Kalinga and Batangas. If you are looking for small samplers of these rare beans, Coffee Tonya is definitely your new treasure trove.
