I am sipping a cup of City Blends brewed coffee as I write this entry. I’ve been drinking coffee since I was a kid, blame it on my family who are sore coffee lovers! My grandma would collect various coffee brands from family and friends, mostly pasalubongs from everyone from abroad.
We would always have a pitcher of coffee during breakfast and a mug of coffee wasn’t always enough for one person so we use bigger mugs!
When I got older, I shifted to 3in1 coffee for convenience, but I lately (specifically when I started on the Ideal Protein diet — more on that on another post) realized how unhealthy instant coffee is, so eventually I stopped and shifted to brewed coffee. The brewing process is so inconvenient and the taste…ugh. But for the love of good health, I forced myself to like it.
Coffee keeps me going. It’s a pick me upper, it keeps me awake, and most of all it makes me happy. So why stop indulging on it? But now instead of drowning myself with unhealthy 3in1, I now spend a little more for one healthy brewed coffee.
Good thing there’s City Blends, honest-to-goodness coffee, made fresh as you order, brought to you by Philippine Seven Corporation (PSC), country licensee of leading convenience store chain, 7-Eleven.
City Blends comes in four distinct flavors – French Vanilla, Mochaccino, Brewed Coffee, and Hot Chocolate, perfect for every feeling.
“Starting at Php20, we offer coffee oozing with honest-to-goodness flavors, just like reel-to-real life couple James and Nadine. For a year now, JaDine has been our partner in promoting City Blends. And, with the overwhelming response to the couple’s commercial last year, they will once again show everyone how honest feelings can be expressed through City Blends coffee in our new commercial,” said Lee Esguerra, PSC Marketing Communications Division Head.
Made from 100% Arabica beans, the City Blends Brewed coffee boasts of an intense flavor that perks you up – perfect for those moments that you need to focus and get something done right away. On the other hand, if you like your coffee frothy and sweet, French Vanilla elicits that kilig feeling brought on by its creamy sweetness. Meanwhile, if you’re feeling like you need that perfect balance of strong and sweet flavors, get Mochaccino – a perfect blend of coffee and delicious rich chocolate.
“I prefer Brewed Coffee. It helps me focus on set where there are so many distractions,” said James Reid. Nadine Lustre, on the other hand, loves City Blends French Vanilla. “For me naman, I prefer my coffee sweet, as the added creamy taste perks me up,” she shared.
