Growing up, I am not a fan of coffee. I like my drinks frothy and milky. So any day you would ask me: milktea? OR coffee? My automatic response would be milktea.
Later on, I developed a taste for coffee. Though if you’ll see me ordering one in a coffeeshop and ask the barista what I usually order, they always say, “That drink is too sweet!”. Like I said, I prefer my coffee frothy and milky plus a loads of sweet added- that is why Splenda is my coffee bestfriend. 😉
Just a few days back, my college friends introduced me to “hole in a wall” coffeehouse which coincidentally located where our family used to live like 12 years ago. I never had the chance to revisit “my hometown” and it was really nostalgic to finally revisit the area. Too bad that we agreed to visit the coffeehouse a little late, I was not able to drop by or visit some of my childhood friends’ place.

Tipsy Beans is coffeehouse that of course serves coffee with a little bit of twist. They have a whole line where coffee or drinks are mixed with liquor. Though the idea of mixing liquor with coffee is not a new thing for me as I tried it some years back. I have to say that their coffee really tastes nice and milky (just the way I like it). The place has an ambiance of privacy though you will never feel claustrophobic. The lights are not dimmed but still very homey and relaxing.
One of the reasons I like going to coffeehouses is to oogle to their interiors and designs. Countries like Japan and Korea have small coffeehouses that are well designed. I even watched somewhere that in Korea, those little coffeehouses can only accomodate 5 people the most at a time. Philippines, specifically Manila, is following that trend. Remember Subspace Coffeehouse? (You can read about Subspace by clicking HERE) Hopefully more and more coffeehouses like Subspace and Tipsy Beans will open soon. Anyways, I am eye-ing one coffeehouse in Manila and I am dying to visit the place for a year now but I don’t have the chance yet. Maybe next month or next week?

Of course food and drinks are part of the reasons to visit coffeehouses. What differs Tipsy Beans from others is their line of food and drinks with liquor like rhum, whiskey, vodka among others.

I will definitely be back in Tipsy Beans soon. Maybe I can ask my childhood friends to have coffee there and do some major catching-up the next time I visit the area. A little bit of info, I visited Tipsy Beans twice now.
