Iced chocolate was okay. If you're looking for chocolate that kids will love, yung matamis like Swiss Miss or Milo, this isn't it.

I decided to try their coffee today, and was disappointed.

I ordered a small cup of brewed coffee.

Pro: coffee is freshly brewed, brown sugar is available

Con: no cream, if you’re lactose intolerant, bring your own
Biggest downer, the coffee isn’t good. It was not strong enough for a fresh brew, more sour than bitter.

This small cup is Php80.

Having overheard the request of a customer before me, I took the time to ask their staff what it was all about. You see I’ve been a commercialized coffee drinker for many years, the type that sips more sugar and lesser beans. So I asked what’s aero press? How’s that process different? A series of questions lead to a conversation and the staff became my company while I enjoy their version of coffee.

The third wave coffee continues to grow and somehow increased the public’s deeper appreciation for this popular beverage. It has also paved the way for higher production of coffee locally. Habitual’s arabica beans for example are from Camarines Sur (I hope I heard this one right).

My sister got the Iced Flat White before and found it too strong. Today, I went for my usual Mocha since I enjoy chocolate and coffee together. The barista added (since I mentioned me liking it sweeter) more Cotabato’s 70% dark chocolate which still had a nice vivid amount of natural sweetness.

For an afternoon snack, I got their Strawberry Shortcake on a cup. It came with their own generous mixture of creamy whipped cream and broas. The staff advised me that it’s better to stir everything together, with it transforming something like a heavy milkshake.

This store opens as early as 7am and closes almost at midnight everyday. I say it’s a treat for offices around and regular patrons of this new mall.

This is so different from their original cafe at chino roces.

I had the almond cold brew something and i think it was a little too sweet and artificial to my liking.

I asked for less ice but too bad they really measure up everything. So "there yah go, mister"

The servers were cold as my coldbrew.

Habitual Coffee had a promo for their Valentine's drinks for the whole month of February. For 400php, you can get their Cold Heart drink + Mènage à trois + Strawberry Shortcake cup.

Cindy S really wanted to try the Cold Heart as she likes rose lattes. Cold Heart is composed of rose syrup, espresso, milk rose foam, and white chocolate. I was able to taste this and it was okay. There's an aftertaste of lasang Sto. Nino. 128514 It's good, but I should still get used to the taste.

I ordered their Mènage à trois which is a drink with threesome of berries, cold brewed coffee and white chocolate foam. It was meh. I didn't like the overall taste. I remember liking SB's coffee with raspberry syrup (as an add on) but Habitual Coffee's version is kind of weird. And not in a good way.

P.S. Habitual Coffee in Uptown Mall is open from 7am to 11pm (weekdays) and mall hours on weekends.

Cream Earl Grey. 120.

When words can be deceiving. I actually thought this had milk. Like a tea latte. I even said "oooh cream". I asked where the cream was they said it's infused in the drink. 128064

Given as is. They have brown and white sugar available to sweeten your drink to your liking.

Earl grey was ok. My stash at home from TWG is more flavorful though. Good try.

Located in the food court, this is a booth across the soon to open Frangos! Woohoo for that. Anyway, the stall itself of Habitual is white and clean looking, which I liked. Baristas are friendly.

Thanks to Norman Lester T for the fun game9786

I like it when establishments put out event based specials. Gets me looking forward to trying something new and not typical. So when Habitat coffee came out with Valentines specials, i thought it was a good a time as any to try their coffee for the first time.

Hhmm, i probably made a mistake there haha. I should have tried one of their tried and tested drinks instead. I love the ambience and feel of the place, and the cups, and the takeout holder haha... but i found the taste of the 2 Valentines offerings a bit weird for my liking. One tasted like flowers (i'm guessing the one with the rose syrup), and the other was just sour and bitter. The strawberry shortcake cup was good though!

I'm definitely one of those people who can't function without caffeine. Whether it may be at the start of my day, middle of the day, afternoon cuppa, or after dinner. Went here with Norman Lester T after dinner. And this is my third visit in Habitual Coffee, the first one was in their original store in Makati.

We tried their Valentine's drink. I had the Cold Heart which consists of rose syrup, espresso, milk, rose foam and white chocolate shavings. Honestly, they had me at rose. 127801 It may seem weird to some but I've tried a handful of rose lattes and rose coffees and I've been a fan since. Norman had their Menage A-Trois which is basically a mixed berries + coffee drink.

For 170php a cup, the Cold Heary was good! 10084 The rose flavor and espresso blended nicely in the drink and one could say that it's an acquired taste. It's limited for the whole month of February only so I dragged Norman Lester T here while it's still available. 9786️ Bonus is it's really pretty! Def IG-worthy! 128525

Habitual Coffee is on my list of must-try coffee shops in Makati. But since I don't frequent the area, I haven't visited it yet. Good thing they opened at Uptown Mall, BGC! Ha! 128069

Cindy S dragged me to try this one afternoon after our event in Uptown Parade. I ordered their Flat White, and she had their Mocha. The Flat White was okay, but I still prefer the one from Costa, TE, and Restock.

Their Mocha was pretty good too. Thanks to Cindy for letting me try it. The caffeine was strong and kicking but the chocolate balanced the taste.

Since it's just near my workplace, I think I'll be visiting Habitual Coffee at least once a week.

P.S. I love their tagline, "This will be a habit." Witty! 1285149749

Chanced upon this small coffee shop while we were checking the food hall of Uptown Mall. I was about to turn back since none of the stalls got my interest until I spotted this all white, neat looking coffee shop.

Habitual Coffee.

Intrigued by what it offers, I checked it out right away. I was meaning to try a latte or mocha but I saw their love month offer so I decided to try one. It was a choice between Menage a Trois and Cold Heart - threesome of berries x single origin & cold brewed coffee x white chocolate foam VS. espresso x milk x rose syrup x white chocolate x milk rose foam. Of course I went for the one that's unusual in a coffee - the one with rose syrup - Cold Heart.

Served over ice, this one was surprisingly good! Thinking of "lasang altar" or "lasang prayer meeting" (no offense people), this doesn't have that. Though the coffee taste wasn't too strong, I liked the lychee-ish flavor that went well with the milk and coffee. It was light and refreshing and I finished it in a flash 128552 Another good thing was that it wasn't sweet at all.

Can't wait to go back!

P.S. Loved the the wall beside Habitual Coffee - it was full of colorful framed pics on an all white tiled backdrop!

Habitual Coffee brings their craft to BGC, humbly located within the Uptown Place Mall Foodcourt, they offer a third-wave alternative and a quick coffee pitstop for those working in the offices above.

S'mores Mocha (180 PHP)
It's a great choice for a dessert drink type mood with the stick of marshmallows and dominant chocolate presence in the mix. Served in a paper cup with a cacao coated lip for a richer experience, but may leave a dark after-taste. It's pricey, not the best value with its meager size, but it's good enough to justify.

Its location in the Foodcourt is a good thing in my opinion, especially when compared to the cramped confines of the Starbucks branch also in the Uptown Mall. Tables spacing is luxurious and the ambiance is quiet by food-court standards.

Finding coffee is my thing especially when they are around the place. So I went to Uptown Mall the other day to check the new branch of Habitual Coffee. Their place is different from the one in Makati cause it's located at the food hall. Similar with a kiosk but the interiors of the food hall is superb so it's good too. I think the reason for the kiosk like is because it's near BPO area so people usually just grab a bite and coffee and leave. But we stayed, and it has a nice ambiance overall.

I had a taste of my Flat White at Php 140. All their cups here are for to-go so mine is around 8 oz. I like the smooth texture it has, and the bitter taste after every sip. It has less milk this time so you can really taste the coffee. My friend enjoyed their Iced Mocha, she prefer to describe it as strong. The other is the Chai Latte which my other friend had. I like how it smells, the cinnamon at the top is inviting for a non tea lover like me.

The place is small, but they do serve cakes as well. Same coffee offering and the people of Uptown must be lucky to have them there cause their Coffee is a great kick off to start a seemingly slow morning or that sleepy late evening.
