  • Caravan Black in BGC: Commune with a Blend of Maverick
  • You will never hear them say that they have the best coffee in town, but their Maverick blend in every cup just couldn’t resist arguing to the contrary. Caravan Black, which rests at the bosom of Bonifacio Global City, serves blends of Brazilian and Colombian coffee beans to make up a beautiful cup of Maverick. With a pinch of bitter-sweet caramel kissing the back of your mouth, the Maverick leaves an impression to everyone who visits.

    The Maverick isn’t the only one to put its best foot forward, however, for Caravan Black also serves a sumptuous stack of soft and fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes (ideal for breakfast) and a healthy serving of Grain Bowl ideal for any time of the day.

    Perhaps the best recommendation Caravan Black has in their sleeves for expats is a healthy bowl of Braised Asian Eggplant, with gluten-free and dietary fiber-rich, Adlai, as a substitute grain to white rice and quinoa.

    For snacks, trying a plate of Hot Turkey & Chicken Sandwich with a workmate or a friend might just serve your appetite. We assure you that the sourdough bread, filled with a generous helping of turkey and chicken ham, tomatoes, Havarti cheese, and pickles, has that soft, easy-to-bite quality that will make sharing easy.

    Stand Out Quality

    With their roasting method set as to have a balance of both bitterness and acidity using the Aeropress, and with the cafe being known to be the home of 2017 Philippine Aeropress 2nd placer, Barista Jasper Flores, Caravan Black has the reputation for having that stand out quality.

    To add to this, Caravan Black also has their Nitro Cold Brew fused with nitrogen, which makes the brew have that heavy, beer-like tang, suiting the taste of many. When it comes to food, Caravan Black’s Joey Blanco, on the other hand, acts as their food consultant together with their four equally accomplished managing partners.

    With 6 baristas on the go, 7 cooks, and 4 managers, you are in good company with Caravan Black.

    A Great Love for Community-Building

    Perhaps what would endear patrons to Caravan Black the most –besides coffee and great food– would be their love for people, and as “coffee brings people together”, it is only fitting to create a space where these two elements combine.

    In fact, Caravan Black seems to invite the community to enjoy each other’s company so much so that lively voices will ultimately welcome you upon entering their vicinity, proving the coffee place’s welcoming atmosphere. What adds to the fun is that patrons could also meet together with cocktails in their midst after 6 in the evening!

    Caravan Black is a quaint coffee space conducive for community-building.

    As if to prove their fondness for community-building, Caravan Black also conducts Trivia Nights every two months, one of which is their Star Wars Trivia Night every 4th of May, at their coffee abode at Net Park Building in BGC.

    Visit Caravan Black located on the ground floor of Net Park Building in Bonifacio Global City. For more information, follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
