Around June last year, we got our first look at the first MUJI Coffee counter in the country. Located in Central Square in BGC, MUJI Coffee's first outpost has been a favorite not only for its signature cups of coffee but also for its minimalist modern interiors that make it conducive for post-caffeine ruminations and afternoon get-togethers. For so long, a trip to BGC has been necessary just to get your dose of MUJI Coffee, but that looks like it's about to change as there have been reports of a new MUJI Coffee counter being built somewhere around the Metro slated to open this year.

Here's everything we know about MUJI's latest coffee shop:

In our own exploration and investigation around the Metro, we saw a MUJI Coffee board-up on the fourth floor of Shangri-La Plaza's East Wing—right beside the Shangri-La MUJI branch.

Coincidentally, just yesterday, MUJI teased the coming of their second coffee counter in the Philippines all over their social media platforms. "MUJI’s second coffee counter is opening in Q2 2023!" reads the caption on their photo post. And that's about all they said regarding the new coffee spot. No other official details have been shared as of writing.

But as you may have guessed, this didn't stop commenters from speculating about where this new branch is. Apart from mentioning the Shangri-La branch we spotted, commenters also speculate the location to be the upcoming SM North Edsa branch, which is slated to be the biggest one for the brand to date.

MUJI is decidedly hush-hush on the location, but has shared with SPOT.ph that the location and other details will be revealed soon. By the looks of the boardup, it seems as though this new coffee counter will roughly be the same size as the one in BGC's Central Square. We hope to see the same minimalist chic designs that many of us loved in their first location, along with their signature cups of joe. Although the branch is not in the North as expected, it's still a win for coffee fans everywhere as there is no longer a BGC monopoly on the brand's signature brews

We're keeping our eyes peeled for any new developments on this, and we're still keeping our fingers crossed that a third branch finally makes its way up North. Here's to wishful thinking, right Spotters?
