Coffee shops offer solace to students who are looking for a place to relax and focus on their work. For someone like me who goes to school in bustling Makati, I've had my share of looking for the perfect coffee shop until I found out about third wave coffee shops. 

Third wave coffee shops put a premium on the quality of the coffee, how it's made, and the story behind it. It's smaller in number compared to the "fast coffee" shops we see everywhere. Lucky for me and every coffee-loving student in Makati, I found a few and am sharing them with you. Here are three third wave coffee shops that will get you in the mood for studying!

  1. Commune Café + Bar

One of the more popular third wave coffee shops in Makati is Commune Café, which is known for their coffee with 3D latte art. I admit it took some time for me to find it since it's located in Poblacion. But once you're in the area, you surely won't miss it.

If you are a big fan of breakfast food, then you should definitely visit this place. They offer a wide variety of dishes to choose from. I recommend trying out their Beef Tapa and their Café Mocha.

What I love about this place is that service here is really quick, which makes it easier for us to just relax and focus on what we're currently doing.

  1. Local Edition

If you're looking for inspiration, then this is definitely the place to be! Located at Perea Street in Legaspi Village is a quaint little café that serves good coffee and snacks.

What I love about this place is that it is peppered with artworks created by the staff and customers! Every nook and cranny has little artworks that would get you inspired to work! Aside from that, Local Edition offers a quiet place for students who just want to focus on doing their school work.

For a quick snack, I definitely recommend their grilled cheese and revel bar! For drinks, I opted for the Sweetened Oolong Latte. With their signature Perea blend, I'm sure you'll be coming back for more.

  1. Hineleban Café

Pronounced as h?-n?-leu-bän, this relatively new third wave coffee shop is located along the busy streets of Arnaiz Ave. near Paseo de Roxas.

Home to the local Bukidnon Coffee Beans, Hineleban Café collaborates with the local farmers to bring you rich coffee, that I'm sure you'll love. In Hineleban, they believe that every cup of coffee has a story tell. So don't be surprised when one of the baristas approach you and tell their story.

I recommend trying out their Chicken Adobo and Iced Café Mocha which is made with tablea chocolate!

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
