Our vision – Kapihan ng bayan

We want to be the Kapihan ng Bayan of Filipinos worldwide. We work hard to re-discover and develop contemporary Filipino coffee culture – and to bring that culture around the globe, as our country’s contribution to the world of coffee.

We don’t just serve coffee. We tell the Story of Filipino Coffee in our products, coffee packs, designer ceramic coffee drippers (featured here, the Trochus Dripper by Brian Tenorio), and our coffee history and heritage.

KapeTayo Coffee’s newest location is at the Ayala UP Town Center, at Katipunan Ave.
in Quezon City. A beautiful and inspiring space right in the heart of the mall.

Our lead offering and best selling product ever, our very own Kapeng Ginto! We created this to represent Philippine Coffee to the world! Kapeng Ginto is a registered trademark of Brian Tenorio.

Instead of going for the Western standard for coffee, we went for the Filipino palette for great coffee and fell in love with our coffee culture and heritage in the process. All these recipes are based from our discoveries and experience of how Filipinos love their coffee. All these recipes are trademarked brands of KapeTayo Coffee’s founder, Brian Tenorio.

Food Pairings

Besides our great coffee, we have bestselling food pairings that are not only truly-Filipino but also intercontinental in inspiration. Try our Suman de Luxe, our buttery Empanadas, or our no-sugar-added less-than-one-gram-of-carbs drink, the #TitaAngie (yes it has its own hashtag). And also our own ice cream line, Sorbeteria. 

OUR TEAS and Merchandise

We have our own tea brand “Tsaatayo” – exotic infusions and teas from the Philippine Islands.


Beside our designer tea line, “Tsaatayo” – exotic infusions and teas from the Philippine Islands, we also have “Tsatsa” – fun bubble tea, and “Kape Bomba” – extremely high-caffeine coffee.


We have set-ups for coffee carts, kiosk, mall popups, and for larger cafe spaces for KapeTayo Coffee. Besides our “KapeTayo Coffee” brand, we also have “KX Coffee” our coffee-service brand for premium professional and office spaces.


KapeTayo Coffee was the official coffee partner of Cinemalaya at the Cultural Center of the Philippines!

We are online

Our coffee is available in our e-commerce site on Lazada. In fact, last December 2016, if you search for “coffee” on Lazada, our brand came up fourth on the list, considering that the first few ones were established decades’ old universal coffee brands and that we were only on Lazada for just on our fourth month then. KapeTayo Coffee’s gift packs are our most sellable online.


Our contribution to the world of coffee

KapeTayo is the lead proponent for the Araw ng Kape celebration here in the Philippines. This is the country’s contribution to International Coffee Day, happening every first of October. See our feature on the International Coffee Day international website here.


Our tagline for KapeTayo Coffee is made up of two of our favorite words: “MORE” and “FILIPINO”. This tagline emphasis the brand’s preference for value and for making experiences more meaningful, with offerings that can be enjoyed by a lot of people. The tagline can be read as two separate words, or a statement when said together. We love this!
