Third on our list is Kaff, founded in 2019, its name is derived from both the Filipino and English words “Kape” and “Coffee”, which is now a staple drink in many cultures throughout history. Their coffee beans are locally sourced from Batangas, with a good mixture of 60% Arabic and 40% Robusta. Kaff made our list because of its delicious menu of comfort food to perfectly match your love for coffee. Their branch here in Santa Rosa Laguna, recently opened last March of 2020. This café operates from 10 am until 8 pm and only operates earlier during the weekend as they start their blends at 8 am. Its al fresco dining experience is perfect for guests who would want to pair their delightful day with a breath of fresh air while sipping their ideal coffee choice. Kaff is located along Don Jose, Santa Rosa Laguna, Nuvali Boulevard.
18 Days Coffee is another go-to café here in Santa Rosa as it takes pride in showcasing how they roast and prepare their coffee blends. This café is also located in Don Jose road, Santa Rosa Laguna across Brittany Sales Office, a real estate company that offers luxury homes in Santa Rosa Laguna. Coffee blends should be typically consumed 18 days from its date of roasting to ensure that all flavors are still in tuck as well as its aroma, coffee roasted and consumed after 18 days has usually lost some of its flavor and aroma, thus not giving you the perfect taste. With its reasonable price and easy access along with other coffee shops mentioned above, 18-day coffee should definitely be on your list once you visit Santa Rosa City. Same with Coffee Project, Tim Hortons, and Kaff, 18 days coffee also offers its beans in packs so you can blend your own at the comforts of your home.
