If you follow local content creators, chances are you see product recos all day, every day. Vlogger Rei Germar is one of the many influencers who loves sharing her latest finds on social media. She's even curated her budols in her Instagram highlights—from skincare products to comfy clothes.
Rei’s latest budol is the Freshman Capsule Coffee Machine by local brand B Coffee Co. According to their website, this coffee maker aims to provide customers with “a convenient and inspiring coffee shop experience at home.”
The machine, together with starter capsules and a milk frother, costs P2,999—quite affordable compared to other pod-type coffee makers. Perfect for coffee lovers who are ballin’ on a budget! It’s easy to use: you just have to fill the machine’s tank with water, insert a capsule, then press a button! With this, you can finally stop overspending on coffee deliveries and easily be your own barista by crafting your very coffee creations at home.
As for flavors, B Coffee Co. currently has four capsules available:
- Xoco - a mocha-flavored medium roast
- Colombia - an Americano-inspired medium roast with predominantly fruity and floral notes
- Sedosa - light-medium roast featuring a creamy Latte profile
- Intenso - Cappuccino dark roast with intense roasted coffee, woody and cocoa notes
You can opt to purchase a pack of 10 capsules, or taste them all through the Capsule Discovery Pack that costs P149 and contains all four flavor profiles. Plus, their pods are apparently compatible with other machines, like Nespresso. You can still try their coffee even if you already have a machine!
The Freshman Machine comes in two colors: red and black—which means it’s versatile and can fit any kitchen’s aesthetic. If you’re interested, head on to B. Coffee Co.’s Shopee and Lazada stores and get your hands on this affordable coffee machine!
