It’s a weekday afternoon, you’ve just had your lunch and you’re contemplating on what will power you up for more hours of doing remote work.
For me, its quite simple: cookies and coffee!
Both give me a boost of energy and wakefulness that’s sure to get me over that midday slump.
Fortunately, I got some sweets and TOV coffee packets from Bake Boss that really hit the spot.
Bake Boss is managed by local entrepreneur Earl Reyes, who launched this online bakery in May last year to pursue her passion for baking and make some money during the lockdown due to the pandemic. (Check out my post about Bake Boss’ Chocolate Banana Muffins and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies here.)
True to her entrepreneurial spirit, Earl expanded her offerings to include new desserts under her Bake Boss label and even drip coffee which she branded TOV Coffee after the Hebrew word for “good”..
My Bake Boss cookie treats included:
Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies (Php240/box of 8). The chewy, cinnamon-spiced oatmeal cookies got a chocolatey upgrade with the addition of decadent dark chocolate chips.
Brookie (Php240/box of 8). The lusciously moist and chocolatey brownie now in cookie form.
For you brownie purists out there, Bake Boss also offers Dark Fudge Brownies (Php240/box of 12) so you can indulge yourself with bite-sized pieces of rich dark fudge chocolate.
Paired with my sweets are cups of coffee made with TOV Drip Coffee (Php45/packet), an easy way to enjoy freshly brewed coffee anytime you want. Solo servings of ground coffee beans are conveniently packaged in bags which can be torn open and hooked onto the sides of coffee mugs. Hot water is passed through the bags and the resulting brew gathers at the bottom of the mug, ready to drink and enjoy.
TOV Drip Coffee is made with coffee beans from Sagada and is available in variants that are sure to appeal to coffee connoisseurs:
- Home-grown brews such as Kalinga, Benguet and Barako which showcase our local coffee artistry
- Blends enriched with infusions such as Double Chocolate, Hazelnut, Macadamia, Cookies & Cream and Bailey’s Irish Cream which brings us new notes to enjoy with our cuppa without the sugar
Drip Coffee also has the flexibility to be made into other coffee creations such as:
- Iced Americano: just let the coffee drip over ice cubes
- Ca phe sua da: place two to three tablespoons of condensed milk into the cup and let the coffee drip over it
So with just my cookies and my drip coffee after lunch, the rest of the day will surely perk up!
All of Bake Boss’ goodies are freshly baked everyday and can be delivered from Paranaque to anywhere in Metro Manila via Grab, Lalamove, Happy Move, MoveIt, Angkas, Mr Speedy and others (delivery fee charged to buyer).
