KapeTayo Coffee is wholly Filipino not only from bean origins, but also to recipes, to brand–this is our contribution to the world of coffee.


KapeTayo Coffee is the official coffee partner of Cinemalaya 2017 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines! We have a popup cafe and a coffee bar in the main building of CCP for the duration of the film festival.


We have branches in SM, foodie destinations in the city, and even in Boracay’s Kalibo International Airport. With our flagship store opening along Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City, this 2017, KapeTayo Coffee is probably one of the most aggressively expanding coffee brands in the country. Please click here for a listing and a live map of our locations.

Featured here: our branches at SM City Marikina, Maginhawa St. Quezon City, and at the Kalibo International Airport (en route to Boracay)
Rendering. The store will be open by October 2017.

Coming this 2017, our Flagship branch along the historic Katipunan Avene in Quezon City (adjacent to Ateneo de Manila and the University of the Philippines). Our coming branches: Ateneo de Manila University, Marikina City near BIR RDO Marikina, Diliman, and Manaoag. Planning happening for a Poblacion Makati branch and a Baguio branch.

Coming soon, our Kapelengke™ model for special branches throughout the country.


Our goal is 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.

Our coffee

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). Coming soon, our very own ice cream line.

OUR TEAS and Merchandise

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


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.

We are online

Our coffee is available in our e-commerce site www.KapeCoffee.co and also 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.
