While waiting for the boys to finish their tennis game one wednesday night, we 3 girls decided to kill time by having coffee at MAGNUM OPUS FINE COFFEE in BF Paranaque. Ate saw pictures on instagram & suggested it to me. She really is my go-to person for food & drinks. Though by looking at her small, bony frame you wouldn’t think she eats OR drinks! :P
It was also featured in EATS 2014. I read it from the copy RICHIE gave me. Yes, we are on first name basis. And yes, feeling close na ako sa kanya, bakit ba! :P
This photo belongs to Magnum Opus.
For a more detailed & professional post on Magnum Opus, click HERE. As we all know, I’m more of a nagpapanggap na blogger haha so if you want to know more about the Single Origin Specialty Coffee House, I suggest you click on When In Manila’s link! ;)
For those in the area, Magnum Opus is right across Tarlac Rice. Go slowly as you trudge Elizalde coz 1 sneeze & you’ll miss it! :P
The place is teeny tiny which makes for a cozy coffee date after a heavy dinner perhaps. In our case, it was pre-dinner! :P The decor reminds me of baguio because of all the heavy wooden tables & chairs.
They also serve food aside from coffee. But since we were having a heavy dinner after, we just stuck with coffee.
With the very hands-on young owner of the Fine Coffee establishment, JONATHAN CHOI.
My Belgian Heartbreaker 175 php Mocha espresso, dark chocolate, steamed milk. Warmed. Actually it came with a simple heart froth but I flat out refused to drink it until Jonathan changed it into a pig. OINK. Voila! ;) Thank you Jonathan for humoring me. I wasn’t getting out of the coffee shop without seeing a schmancy-fancy work of coffee art! :P Make sure you also ask for a detailed one when you do visit.
Marocchino 150 php Unsweetened chocolate, double dose of espresso with a tiny topping of milk & a chocolate chaser. If you’re not a black coffee drinker like Eileen, this is NOT for you! ;))
Okay, you caught me! :P We split an apple strudel coz we were like cross-eyed hungry already at 9PM waiting for the boys to finish playing! Jonathan just happened to place it on MY side of the table, ok!
I just placed an order for my v-cups in Amazon. Can’t wait for my box to arrive soon so I can finally have cappuccinos in the comfort of my own home whenever I feel like it. <3 Come over then, let’s have coffee! ;)
And sorry for the bad picture quality of this post & the previous one. I’ve been trying out my new phone’s camera to see if it’ll do so I won’t have to buy a new camera. Obviously, it won’t. And I DO have to buy a new camera huhuhu. Now THAT’s a heartbreaker! :P
