Since the opening of Arabica Manila Mitsukoshi BGC in July 2023, coffee lovers have been gathering in the area to enjoy the brand’s signature brews and minimalist store aesthetic—which Filipinos have totally longed for since its closure during the pandemic. Founded by Kenneth Shoji in 2014 and brought to the Philippines by franchisor Allue Hortaleza four years later, the brand now welcomes its 166th store.

This partnership artfully interlaces the country’s iconic elements, seamlessly blending them with the enchanting allure of urban landscapes.

As Arabica Philippines Chief Executive Officer Karen Tui puts it: “Arabica’s journey in the Philippines has been nothing short of amazing. The warmth and enthusiasm of Filipino coffee lovers have made us feel right at home. We’ve always believed that the Philippines is an integral part of the global coffee community, and this flagship store is our way of celebrating that.”

Redefining the coffee experience for Filipinos, Arabica Manila BGC Roastery made a soft opening for the public on November 18—and like before, its signature drinks, like Kyoto Latte, Matcha Latte, and Spanish Latte, have captivated the taste buds and hearts of coffee enthusiasts, reaffirming its status as a destination where the art of coffee meets an immersive and delightful experience.

In the words of Chief Operating Officer Koko Tamura: “It’s an immersion into the rich stories and flavors that define Filipino culture. From the brewing process to the final sip, every detail is meticulously curated for an unparalleled coffee experience.”

So, whether you’re craving a delightful coffee fix or planning a hangout with friends, Arabica Manila BGC Roastery is the perfect go-to place for both. With its 50-seater capacity, signature white space, high ceilings, and a distinctive roastery room tucked away on the mezzanine behind the kitchen counter, the space is designed to cater to a variety of needs.
