Esprecious by Bravilor Bonamat

Proudly manufactured in The Netherlands, Bravilor Bonamat unleashed its ESPRECIOUS espresso machine on Philippine shore, just in time for the annual Asia Food Expo (AFEX).

The ULTIMATE Triple-tag-team:
Fresh Coffee Beans by Boyd's,
Creme/Sweetener by Far Skyes,
Handsome Machine by Bravilor 

Triple-tag-teaming with Robert Francisco of Boyd's,  (Bravilor's exclusive importer/distributor) and Far Skyes Enterprise, Esprecious showcased why it is a comprehensive yet compact machine with a conveniently (read SMART) arranged touch screen.

Installation is a cinch! Simply set/program the desired variety (Cappuccino, Long Black, Latte, Cafe Creme, Cafe Mocha, etc.) and strength, then fill the chambers with the ingredients (coffee beans, sweetener, cocoa powder, frappe base, etc.) based on the menu you created, select your favorite backlight color (FUN!), then watch away with glee as your selected beverage is prepared.

Brewing caffeinated and creamy goodies soon. Watch out for it in your favorite cafe, hotel chain, airport lounge and/or anything and everything coffee.

With Mr. Peter Kaaz, Bravilor's Export Sales Manager,
and Mr. Robert Francisco of Boyd's Coffee
Easy as 1-2-3 don't you agree???!!!

Chukar - The Cherry Bomb!

All giddy when we received this gift ("PASALUBONG") from a visiting friend from KENT, WA. It's a reacquaintance of sorts after love at first bite more than 2 years ago, when we first feasted our palette on  CHUKAR CHERRIES at Seattle's world-famous Pike Place Market.

Mind you, these are NOT the "over the hill" Valentine's Day staple of syrupy sweet chocolate cherry-filled candies; or worse, raisins covered in compound (read: INFERIOR) chocolate mass produced by your leading candy maker.

Think REAL CHERRIES romantically embraced in anything and everything chocolate with twist and turns beyond one's flavor imagination - Chipotle Cherries, Cabernet Cherries, Pinot Noir Cherries, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles, the list goes on and on...

A family-owned company founded in 1988 in Yakima Valley of Washington State, Chukar celebrates the natural bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Best of Nature, Best of Chocolate -- Truly THE CHERRY ON TOP!!!
