Despite the proliferation of milk tea places in the city since last year, drinking coffee remains part of the daily habit for many Filipinos.
Personally, I don’t think I’d be able to get my day started more efficiently without having a good cup of brew in the morning.
Recently, I was able to touch base with Mr. Edward Martinez, founder of the company Greatkind, to talk about their product, Goodwill Coffee.
Goodwill Coffee is instant organic coffee. It is made from Arabica and Robusta beans, with a mixture of Moringa and Spirulina, making it a healthful drink.
Moringa is known as “nature’s multivitamin”. We Filipinos, are more familiar with it as malunggay. Meanwhile, Spirulina is a dietary supplement which many call as an “amazing super food”.
Truth be told, there are a lot of instant coffee products out there that has a multitude of beneficial ingredients. I’ve tried some and despite the claimed health benefits, I couldn’t muster to drink them regularly because I didn’t like their taste.
That was my initial hesitation with Goodwill Coffee, which I’m glad to discover, did not taste like a coffee-flavored vegetable juice.
The aroma of coffee was distinct on my cup, and the taste was well-balanced. It has non-dairy creamer, minimally processed brown sugar, and a hint of white sugar – which is probably the reason why its taste is uniquely pleasurable.
