As an avid coffee lover, Russian-born and Australian-raised founder and managing director Victor Birman saw how Filipinos are also fond of coffee, no matter if it’s instant or brewed.

This opened an opportunity for him to provide a good choice of product and value to Filipino consumers, small restauranteurs, and entrepreneurs without having to invest a lot of money to have a genuine coffee experience.
In addition, one of Victor’s goals with Monkeyspeak is to educate consumers on the health risks of consuming 3-in-1 coffee and also encourage them to fully recognize the benefits of real organic coffee.
Essentially, Monkeyspeak Coffee is an exclusive distributor of CINO’s Nespresso-compatible espresso machines and imported single-serve coffee and chocolate capsules to the Philippine market.

They have a wide range of coffee and chocolate products packed in single-serve capsules (Php 28 to Php 30 per capsule) sourced directly from the best specialty coffee growers around the world.
These capsules are equivalent to one serving and are compatible not only with their very own brand of Cino espresso machines but also with Nespresso branded machines.
One of their forefront products is the Coffee Planet range from the United Arab Emirates. It is made from 100% pure premium Arabica beans, which are typically more aromatic and not too robust in flavor.

This range is usually consumed straight as an espresso or Americano with five available variants particularly Ristretto, Organic Espresso, Espresso, Lungo, and Decaf.
Hailing from Australia is another range of coffee and chocolate known as PODiSTA. Unlike the former, this range features a stronger and more intense blend of coffee from the carefully crafted Arabica and Robusta beans.
Generally, this blend is ideal for espresso americano, latte, cappuccino, and macchiato.

For good premium coffee, the DiStefano Reserve Lot is an excellent range developed, perfected, and packed in Australia since 1982.
This particular range features distinct signature coffee blends from its Italian roots packed in biodegradable and compostable capsules.

Another blend of arabica robusta is DiStefano’s Primo range, an award-winning coffee blend developed by Primo Roasters that has been enjoyed in Australian cafes for decades.

What’s more exciting is Monkeyspeak now invests in biodegradable compostable solutions, which means their capsule containers are 100% environmentally friendly. It works wonders for the environment as it decomposes over an accelerated period of time—not to mention that coffee is known to be a great fertilizer as well.

“By providing this solution to consumers, we are basically proactively protecting the environment from any harm,” Birman said.
Espresso machines and accessories
Monkeyspeak’s products are not only limited to coffee capsules as they also distribute espresso machines and accessories that come in compact and elegant designs suitable for home, office, or business use.
The espresso machines are made by CINO, a pioneer manufacturer of capsule coffee machines. This line of coffee contraption is equipped with three main components: the thermostat, volume control, and pressure pumper—all made from Europe.

Meanwhile, the commercial machine (Php 70,000) features multi-pumps for coffee, steamer, and water, allowing one to make two coffees or chocolates simultaneously. Its high-quality housing makes it fit for restaurants, cafes, and hotels.

Crafted by Italian designers, each machine is fully automatic, space and energy-saving, and low maintenance—specifically for coffee capsules with the sleek capsule slot on top.
For accessories, they also sell electric milk frothers and steamers perfect for making cappuccino, cafe latte, hot chocolate, and cafe mocha. Capsule holders, Piccolo double-wall glasses, and cleaners are also available in their selection of products.

Furthermore, they are looking forward to creating premium coffee blends made from Philippine-grown beans ideally packaged in biodegradable compostable capsules. As of now, they are taking their time in working with local farmers from La Trinidad, Benguet and Davao to bring this innovative product to markets soon.
Monkeyspeak Coffee is open for time-based subscription packages, volume orders, and direct delivery. Their products are also available on their Lazada and Shopee stores.
