KapeTayo Coffee is wholly Filipino not only from bean origins, but also to recipes, to brand. Our goal is to re-discover, develop, and celebrate Filipino Coffee Culture. This is our contribution to the world of coffee. Our hashtags: #KapeTayo #FilipinoCoffee

Speaking to more than 2,000 Design proponents from the different major creative industries from across the Philippines, Tenorio surveyed the Design and Creative sectors of the country.

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

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). 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.


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.

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.


Our tagline for KapeTayo Coffee is made up of two of the 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!

Jewel Locations

I call them JEWEL LOCATIONS #jewellocations — extremely special locations where we serve our coffee with inspiration on the side.These are the locations and destinations close to my heart. In this locations, I personally make sure that there are seats and spots where you can sit down, have coffee, and let your imagination wonder off to a distant horizon of sea, an expanse of mountains, or a canopy of stars.I am extremely excited with personally putting these up for KapeTayo Coffee. – Brian Tenorio, CEO of KapeTayo Coffee
