Starbucks: 6750 Ayala

6750 AYALA AVE. STARBUCKS

This is one of the busiest Starbucks I know in the middle of Makati, yet it’s also the best one I’ve ever seen in the Metro.

If you know Glorietta and you are always passing by Ayala Avenue, or if you just so happened that you’re a Makati kid, you probably know this Starbucks branch. If not, it’s located at 6750 Building, which is erected along Ayala Avenue, Makati City. Just turn at the Parking and Office Drives,  and it’s easy to spot this.

Unang beses kong napuntahan ang Starbucks na ito when I was applying for a BPO job in a company near by.  Tapos noong na-hire ako, lagi ko na s’yang tinatambayan.

Gusto ko ang ambiance ng branch na ito because it very spacious, dahil mayroon s’yang dalawang floor. Mayroon s’yang touch of Filipino on some of its wall designs. But among all the things I appreciate here is this tower of pictures of, I believe, their staff.

Ayun nga lang every rush hour, coffee breaks, and lunch break ng mga office workers, laging box office ang pila at occupied lahat ng chairs and tables. But let the rush hour pass, and this branch is a perfect place to be at. Usually, around 9PM onward it’s already peaceful, except kung may promo sila.

Baristas are very accommodating naman, and the way they prepare my drink is I think is at their standard naman. So good job!

Ito actually ang pinaka-malapit na Starbucks sa office ko (click here for directions). It’s found along the 32nd street corner 7th avenue in BGC. Ang landmark na kailangan mong tandaan ay ang Globe Tower. Tatawid ka lang ‘yun na.
Kung may kotse ka, and if you’re coming from the Market, Market, just go straight along the 32nd street then turn right to 9th avenue, and Left to Lane R. There’s a paid parking right over there if you want to stay; or if you’re on-the-go, this Starbucks has a drive-thru.

Medyo crowded s’ya lalo na kapag morning and lunch ng weekdays, at ngayon lang ang pinakamagandang chance ko na makuhaan ang lugar ng picture dahil konti ang tao due to APEC Holidays. But as you can see, it’s a cool Starbucks branch to hang out at. The place is very spacious. Outside, they have chairs, table and couch, which is a good smoking area. While inside, the have two floors. Ground floor got long table and set of stools that are perfect talaga sa target market nila, the employees who make chismisan meetings. Second floor is perfect close conversation naman. Smaller space but it’s still good.

I experienced going both daylight and evening and the ambiance fits the place, busy pero posh pa din. Nahiya naman ako sa Chandelier nila, ‘di ba?

Food and drinks are served well naman as expected from different Starbucks Store.
Am I visiting this store again? Well, not during weekdays, I guess. Pero since sila ng malapit na Starbucks sa office namin, then go-go-go lang ako. Coffee-over-Arte ito!

Coffee At Night

Coffee_at_night

Una sa lahat, I want to thank everyone na tumangkilik sa mga naunang adventures dito sa The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk & Coffee lalong lalo na doon sa mga sumusubaybay sa aming Facebook Page kung saan doon ko inumpisahan lahat.

As I’ve said on my ‘About TZCAOMAC’ page, everything started with my love for coffee, most especially the flavored ones — Cafe Latte, Cafe Mocha and Caramel Macchiato. Plus, I love also expressing myself in art, and marami rin talaga kaming kalokohan at hugot sa buhay ng best friend ko, whose mini me character is Milk, kaya naisip ko na i-share ang karamihan dito.

Right now, I’m at the center of Greenfield District in Mandaluyong City, Philippines creating more stories and lining them up for the next postings. This moment makes my ‘Coffee At Night’ more meaningful and productive. And actually, ever since na sinimulan ko ang ‘TZCAOMAC’, I always look forward for tomorrow. Kahit minsan nahihirapan akong ilabas ‘yong mga genuine comedy ko sa katawan, nagiging focus talaga ako to make positive vibes dominate in my life. And yeah, I can now justify why I sip a cup coffee in the middle of the night without the worry of not getting enough sleep for my day job.

What’s Next? I will start posting the Coffee Shots of the Day on Twitter. It’s composed of Quotes and Hugot, that will keep you motivated and inspired. So make sure to follow us by clicking our social media links.

In the Author’s Section, I will also post some poems that I made during my stay in different coffee shop. Most likely, makikita ninyo ito every Sunday.

I like also to invite people to let me know the best coffee shop here in Metro Manila (or maybe the near by provinces) so I can visit them, taste their bestsellers and para rin ma-experience kong mag-drawing at lumikha ng mga istorya para sa ‘TZCAOMAC sa stores nila.

Ayun lang po! See you guys! #KapePaMore
