Coffee Shop Review: Muji Coffee, BGC, Taguig, Philippines

I sometimes wonder if I’m living under a rock because many things flow under my radar. For example, I didn’t know Muji, that popular Japanese retail store, had a coffee shop until recently. I checked it out when I had to go to BGC recently for an errand.

Please note that this will not be a full-blown review, as I only managed to order one cup of coffee.

Cafe Mocha

Price: USD 1.87 (PHP 110)

Muji coffee cafe mocha

Despite being an avid coffee shop customer, I have always found coffees from these establishments to be overpriced. Thus, it was somewhat surprising to me to see the low price point of Muji Coffee. A small cup of cafe mocha for $1.87, are you kidding me? This drink is one of the most expensive when you go to a regular coffee shop. At Starbucks, for one, a 12 oz (tall) cup of cafe mocha is $3.14 (β‚±185).

I’m not sure why Muji’s drinks are cheap when the store itself sells expensive products, e.g., a $14.01 (β‚±825) pillow. And considering how delicious the coffee was (yes, it was marvelous, I should have gotten a bigger cup), the low price became all the more mind-boggling for me. But I’m not about to complain; a cheap and delicious coffee? I say take my damn money.

Author’s Note: Coffeehan’s scale pertains to Mara’s general feel about a coffee shop. The rating is based on her personal opinion, which is primarily influenced by the coffee’s taste more than the place’s aesthetics. The rating doesn’t aim to change, nor does it represent another person’s view of the coffee shops featured on this blog.
