This time of the year, the streets would have been filled with cheers and children singing Christmas carols celebrating the festive season. But 2020 came with a string of events making everyone celebrate the holidays a lot more different than usual. Now the streets are quiet and festivities are toned down and muted.
Despite the challenges and difficulties this year, one thing is for sure, Filipinos will still find a way to celebrate life and this season of giving.
Filipinos are known to be resilient and optimistic, and as a Filipino-owned company, Bo’s Coffee is no different.
The Filipino-owned chain of coffee shops recently launched its holiday campaign together with the country’s continuous recovery from months of pause during the initial wave of the COVID 19 pandemic. And from recovery stems the way we adapt to the new normal.
Bo’s Coffee urges Filipinos to “Bring the Cheer” and keep the celebrations simple yet joyful with intimate gatherings in the comfort of their own homes and let the Gift of Coffee bring everyone together. “Bring the Cheer”, be the spark of the season and enjoy the company of loved ones over a cup of your favorite Philippine Coffee paired with delicious desserts.
The holiday offers include specially curated coffee gift sets and sweet treats. The gift options include beans of your favorite homegrown brew that you can make at home, DIY kits using their signature blended coffee mixes, and delicious locally-sourced snacks and beverages.
Bo’s Coffee also launches the 2nd design of their reloadable gift card Philippine Coffee Edition. Like last year’s card featuring Sagada, the new design incorporates the T’boli pride through the Matutum reloadable Gift Card. The design elements showcase Mount Matutum in South Cotabato, the T’boli T’nalak weave, and their local coffee beans painted digitally by hand.
To celebrate with your family and friends at home, Bo’s Coffee brings new holiday cakes to the table. From your crowd-favorite carrot bar comes the Premium Carrot Cake, and their Christmas Chocolate Mousse reimagined into a Filipino Twist - the image of a Christmas Parol. These cakes are freshly-baked and ready to be delivered to your homes for Noche Buena or even for your Christmas parties online.
Along with delectable cakes, comes the new Merry Doughnuts for you to enjoy when you decide to dine in safely at your favorite Bo’s Coffee branch or pre-ordered for delivery in time for the holidays. These ringed doughnuts are moist and soft, coated with Christmas colored chocolate glaze and decorated with white, red, and green accents to spread the cheer to your celebrations.
This year, Bo’s Coffee brings back their specialty Christmas beverages, the Dark Mocha Macadamia Froccino and Mocha Hazelnut Froccino, along with the new Matcha Hazelnut Freeze.
The Matcha Hazelnut Freeze is a delicious matcha beverage blended with decadent hazelnut syrup. It’s graciously topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of matcha powder.
These limited edition Holiday Beverages are available in all Bo’s Coffee stores nationwide until January 15, 2021.
“While we are looking forward to the end of a challenging year and the beginning of a better one, we would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to our team members who helped keep our doors open to serve your favorite cup of Philippine Coffee and most especially to the frontliners who worked tirelessly to serve and protect those affected by the COVID 19 pandemic.”, said Steve Benitez, Bo’s Coffee Founder and CEO.
Bo’s Coffee partners with select hospitals in Manila and Cebu by giving health care workers a special treat in the form of gift certificates for them to enjoy their favorite homegrown brew and dessert and bring in the cheer this Holiday season.
At the height of the pandemic, Bo’s Coffee gave away brewed coffee, bottled coffee drinks and food to frontliners and partnered with organizations supporting hospital health care workers.
Bo's Coffee will continue to “Bring the Cheer” with its coffee and support for Philippine coffee farmers through the sourcing of coffee beans from Sagada, Benguet in the Mountain Province, Mt. Kitanglad in Bukidnon, Mt. Matutum in South Cotabato, and Mt. Apo in Davao.
The Filipino-owned coffee chain recently opened branches in SM Butuan and two more in Cebu City. This coming 2021, Bo’s Coffee aims to open more stores including digital coffee brands.
