Winners of the 15 and 50 Raffle

First of all, we at Bo's Coffee would like to thank everyone for celebrating 15 years and 50 stores with us. We did this for all of you and we're glad you enjoyed it ;)

On to our main topic: the 15 and 50 raffle draw was held last August 15 in our Makati office, and as it was our first electronic raffle, we were very excited—and even nervous—to go through the process. But we did emerge with the following winners (whew), and we offer them our warmest congratulations:

P15,000 in Bo's Coffee GCs
Wilson Juezan
Bo's Coffee IT Park, Cebu City

Neo B3390 netbook
Joanna Rae Banares
Bo's Coffee at the 3rd floor of SM City Cebu (near the Cinemas)

To the winners: we've already sent you notices through mail. Our marketing staff will also call you soon to assist you in the claiming of your prizes. Again, congratulations!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank the people at Neo, who've been great partners in this big event. They have a really nice new website, by the way, so we hope you could pay them a visit.

And most of all, my deepest gratitude goes out to the entire Bo's Coffee family. The promo was by no means 100% perfect, but we all gave it our 100%, supporting each other as any family would. It's been a pleasure working with you on this great milestone in Bo's Coffee history.

Misty hot mocha cappuccino under the weather

Bo's Coffee hot mocha cappuccino
Last Saturday, I traveled to Bo's Coffee E. Rodriguez amidst the rain and the cold to meet a friend who lived nearby. The place was already quite cozy to begin with, but with a hot mocha cappuccino in my hand, I enjoyed my little weekend "ramble" even more. It made me think that rain isn't so bad after all! Try it out :)

15 years, 50 stores

On June 28, 1996, we opened our first store in Ayala Center Cebu. Back then, Filipinos didn't understand why coffee should cost any more than a few pesos. There were no foreign coffee shop brands in the Philippines yet. For the typical Pinoy, coffee was, simply, for waking up.

But today, 15 years later, we're opening our 50th store and looking forward to more. We recall the past and see that we've indeed gone a long way in sharing our passion with the Filipino. So, we'd like to do a bit of reminiscing by bringing you the Bo's Coffee 15 and 50 promo. For four weeks and on certain days and times, we're offering our best-selling brewed coffee at P15 and all froccino flavors at P50—the way they were fifteen years ago. This treat is our way of thanking our customers for being with us all these years. For all the others whom we have not yet had the joy of serving, we invite you to come and see why our customers love us so much :) Read more about our promo at

We'd also like to thank Neo and for their support. Together, we prove that Filipino brands can make their own unique mark in the lives of the people they serve.

Bo's Coffee goes international with World Racers

We've partnered with World Racers, a Facebook game that works in a similar way to Amazing Race: get a partner, go around the world performing challenges, and get prizes when you win the race. That might seem all too simple, but there are a few things about World Racers that I find very special:
  • The game was made by Filipinos. We're a Filipino company, and we love supporting the world-class products of our fellow countrymen.
  • World Racers is a revolution in Facebook games. It's not a "second-rate, trying-hard, copycat" (cue music from Bituing Walang Ningning). It's a whole new way of playing on Facebook.
  • Those who play the game, i.e. the "Racers," can post videos of the challenges they participated in to their friends on Facebook. It's like having you're own Facebook TV! Racers can also ask for support that way (see next point).
  • Even people who won't play can participate as fans. When watching Amazing Race on TV, you root for your favorite team and complain about another. But you can't do anything about it. On World Racers, fans can help their favorite team by giving them virtual goods or by buying obstacles for their opponents.
  • You can win real prizes! Over P40,000 in cash and prizes await tournament winners.
Register now to start playing when the game launches on May 30. We have a bonus for you too! you can get a cool Bo's Coffee jacket for your avatar if you redeem this code: BOSRACERFTW

Here's the World Racers teaser video:

Bloggers, join our Easter Egg hunt and win Bo's Coffee GCs!

Collect three Bo's Coffee Easter eggs
and win up to P3,000 in gift certificates!

Hey bloggers, we're giving away P10,000 worth of GCs this Easter! Be one of the first five to find three Easter Eggs in our stores and you'll receive Bo's Coffee gift certificates. It's simple: just purchase from three different Bo's Coffee branches and then blog about the experience and you get an Easter Egg. Winners get the following:

First place: P3,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
Second place: P2,500 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
Third place: P2,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
Fourth place: P1,500 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
Fifth place: P1,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates

Ready to win? Here are the detailed specs:
  1. You can get an Easter Egg by going to a Bo's Coffee store, purchasing at least P100 worth of food and/or drink (keep your receipts please), and blogging about them. Your blog post must include a description of the food and/or drink(s) that you purchased, a photo of you in the store together with the food and/or drink(s) that you purchased, the date of your purchase and the location of the branch that you went to. At the end of your blog post, you must include one Bo's Coffee Easter Egg image with a link to this post. Grab the code below.
  2. As a rule, you may get only one Easter Egg per branch for each blog. To complete the three Easter Eggs, your blog must have three blog posts from three different branches. The exceptions are the following:
    1. You may get a maximum of two eggs per blog (i.e. two blog posts) from each of our branches in Tagaytay, Bohol, Tacloban and Davao. However, your purchases in these two blog posts must be on different dates, as reflected on your receipts.
    2. You may get three eggs per blog (i.e. three blog posts) from our branches in Dumaguete and Iloilo. However, your purchases in these three blog posts must be on different dates, as reflected on your receipts.
  3. In each of your posts, you must have bought and written about a Bo's Coffee product that you did not feature in previous Bo's Coffee Easter Egg blog posts. There should be at least one unique Bo's Coffee food or drink in each post.
  4. Make sure that the facts in your blog post are accurate. Inaccurate information may be used as grounds for disqualification.
  5. Your receipts must be dated anytime from April 24 to May 1, 2011. Your blog posts, on the other hand, may be dated from April 24 to May 8, 2011. This means that you may simply make your purchases on Easter week and then write about them later (though it would be best to post as early as possible).
  6. Each time you put up a blog post that has an Easter Egg, fill out this form to submit that Easter Egg. Bo's Coffee will accept Easter Egg submissions from April 24, 2011 at 12:05 AM until May 8, 2011 at 11:55 PM. We are not responsible for any downtime that you or our service providers may experience, so we suggest you submit your entries as quickly as possible.
  7. You may submit a maximum of three (3) Easter Eggs per blog. You may win more than once if you enter more than one blog, as long as you've collected three Easter Eggs on separate blogs. Each blog must be on a unique domain or subdomain.
  8. Your blog must have at least 20 posts previous to the first Easter Egg post. Your blog must be also at least four months old, i.e. its first post must be dated December 23, 2010 or earlier.
  9. Your blog must not be about or include sexually explicit material, violence, profanity, obscenity, indecency, illegal activity, or any other immoral act that runs contrary to Bo's Coffee's company values.
  10. The first five to submit qualified entries will win prizes from Bo's Coffee. The prizes are as follows:
    1. First place: P3,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
    2. Second place: P2,500 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
    3. Third place: P2,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
    4. Fourth place: P1,500 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
    5. Fifth place: P1,000 in Bo's Coffee gift certificates
  11. Winners will be asked to produce receipts as proof of their purchase for the Easter Eggs that they gathered. The receipts must indicate the exact purchase that the winner featured in his/her blog posts. Failure to produce the appropriate receipts may be used as grounds for disqualification.

Warming up? Don't forget to cool down. Our summer drinks will help.

Our summer drinks are here to the rescue!
During the summer, walking outside makes me feel like I'm getting roasted. The image that forms in my mind is a bamboo-skewered lechon being carried down the street. Yes, Bo's Coffee has its origins in Cebu, which is famous for its lechon. But that doesn't mean I should suddenly feel like I am one.

Luckily, Bo's Coffee has two new drinks that will save me from the skewer this summer. We'll offer these brewed iced tea flavors just for the season: the Apple Green Iced Tea and the Ruby Red Grapefruit Iced Tea. These fruity flavors go great with the summer theme. I find the sweeter green apple flavor definitely refreshing, while the grapefruit taste of ruby red is a citrus delight. That and I'm an iced tea lover, so you can imagine how much of a treat this is for me.

But enough about me, go try it out for yourself and let us know what you think :)

Tea's a tease when brewed and iced

Bring me to a bar and I'll order iced tea. Yeah yeah, I know I'm KJ (I should let you know that the term killjoy doesn't delight me at all), but I'm allergic to alcohol so I have an excuse =P

It's 11am and I'm at a bar right now--a coffee bar that is--and I ordered the same: a nice serving of brewed iced tea. Our guys at Bo's Coffee Glorietta 5 made me an apple-flavored one. Like most of our other drinks, this one isn't so sweet, and that's the way I like it. I can taste the tea very well because it's not drowning in sugar.

Our brewed iced tea also comes in other flavors: passion fruit, raspberry and dalandan. Try it! :)

Hungry? Have a Hungarian breakfast at Bo's Coffee

I went to Bo's Coffee Megamall (5F Atrium) and ordered my favorite meal on the menu, the sausage breakfast set. My order had a Hungarian sausage, scrambled eggs and a few slices of bread. But I really like the flexibility of the Bo's Coffee breakfast set: if you don't dig that combination, you can opt to have mini franks instead of Hungarian sausage, sunny side up instead of scrambled eggs, or pancakes instead of toast. Just tell our baristas what combination suits your appetite and they'll whip it up for you. Neat, eh? :)

The Bo's Coffee Sausage Breakast Set (Hungarian Sausage)
My breakfast set cost me P190, but one great thing is that you can have brewed coffee or hot chocolate for an additional P10 if you order the meal before 11:00 am. I had a mug of our bestselling brewed coffee since I really needed to wake up. It did its job quite well!

Bo's Coffee also serves corned beef, bacon, and omelette breakfast sets, plus their big momma: the Big Breakfast Set! I'll tell you about these other meals at another time. I'm especially excited to review the last one (thus revealing the level of my appetite to the world, but never mind). If you're famished, I highly recommend the Bo's Coffee breakfast set. We serve them all day.

Going back to my meal: I have to admit that I really love Hungarian sausage, so this meal was a nice treat for me. The sausage itself was heavy on the tummy and very tasty. The eggs and toast were great companions, balancing out the strong taste of the Hungarian sausage. If I had been a bit more hungry, pancakes would have served me well, but thankfully, the wheat bread was enough. I finished off my lunch with a cookie for the gods (yum!). It was a wonderful meal. My only regret was that I forgot to use the pack of catsup that Patrick gave me along with the rest of my order =/ A pity for a catsup lover like me.

How about you, what's your favorite meal at Bo's Coffee?

A red velvet for Valentine's

All the reds come out in Feb, and our newest offering is no exception. Bo's Coffee's Red Velvet cake will hit the stores on the second week of February 2011. In case you're not familiar with Red Velvet cakes, they're made of layers of chocolate buttered cake in deep red color, filled with creamy custard and cream cheese, and covered with whipped cream icing. We added a special touch by topping it with chocolate shavings.

Our Manila stores will carry a heart-shaped Red Velvet mini cake until Feb. 19, 2011. Our Cebu stores, on the other hand, will offer the round Red Velvet mini cake. After Feb. 19, all stores will carry the regular-sized Red Velvet.

We hope you like it!

You can get our Valentine's mini-cake for P150, but it's only P100 if you buy it with a strawberry freeze
