When I mentioned to my daughter (she studied in UST) that I will visit Tinapayan Festival in Dapitan, she immediately says “Masarap ang tinapay dyan”.
It was not actually the Tinapayan Festival that I would be visiting but their café known for great coffee.
Bean Belt Coffee is own by El Claro Chavez, son of the Tinapayan Festival owner who found his passion on brewing coffee as a business; like father, like son as they say
El Claro is a 20 years old Political Science student and an entrepreneur as well. After a year of planning, Bean Belt Coffee was opened to the public.
The Coffee Place
You can choose between Carbonara, Tomato Penne, Seafood Putannesca, Arrabiata. Each one has their distinctive taste which you will appreciate. Try it one at a time, so that you can choose your favorite as well.
I choose Carbonara, creamy pero di nakakaumay
The Artisanal Coffee
Bean Belt served artisanal coffee blends and appetizing sandwiches and pasta not to mention a place where you can bring the whole family, barkada or officemate for a cup of coffee or dine.
Imagine getting a taste of their family recipe when you ordered the Ginataang Sugpo or the Galantina and their home made longgonisa and atsara.
Masarap, kakaiba lalo na ung Ginataang Sugpo
Galantina is tasty kahit walang sauce
Hopefully ang atsara nila will be available nadin for take-out kasi masarap talaga
It was mention by El Claro that they do the atsara since bata pa daw sila, so kahit nakapikit; perfect na nila
El Claro is making a name of his own with his love for coffee through Bean Belt Caffee.
Wala sa edad yan, nasa passion yan at dedication; that’s what El Claro stand for.
