It was a wonderful afternoon at the corner of Rufino Street and Valero last week as finally, the much awaited 5th Starbucks Reserve store finally opens! Stationed at Signa Designer Residences, Starbucks unveils another Reserve store with a wonderful store ambiance! The last time I shared with you was when the Tomas Morato Branch opened last time (LINK HERE). Starbucks Reserve is a category of ultra‐premium coffees that represents the pinnacle of Starbucks coffee perfection and passion.
By the looks of the interior, I would say that this is one of the most beautiful coffee shop branch Starbucks had!
We were welcome by Noey from Starbucks Philippines.
We got the chance to taste Starbucks features two Starbucks Reserve coffees in the Philippines: Starbucks Reserve Malawi Peaberry Sable Farms
and Starbucks Reserve Peru Chonti.
Since I am a big fan of hot brewed coffee, I appreciate the PERU CHONTI better!
At the event, partners were very accommodating and smiling all the time, I know something will be revealed more than the opening of the store.
I can’t help but look at the walls. these 300 coffee bean jars are really amazing!
So I was right, they also introduced the Clover Brewing System! This is a coffee brewing system that uses innovative Vacuum‐Press technology to create your cup right in front of you. They actually did an actual demonstration on how it was being done.
The stainless steel filter lowers into the brew chamber and then hot water is added at a precise temperature to brew your coffee for an ideal length of time.

The Clover Brewing System controls brew time and temperature digitally, as even small changes here can dramatically affect the outcome you taste in the cup. A thermal blanket surrounds the brew chamber to keep water within 1 degree Fahrenheit of the ideal temperature. After the coffee brews, it is pulled through a 70‐micron filter. The resulting grounds are pushed out of the top of the machine. The coffee itself flows into your cup – hot, aromatic and amazingly flavorful. We’re pretty sure it will be the finest cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted.
