Breville’s virtual festival celebrates everything about coffee


    Coffee is a huge part of our lives. It starts our mornings, gives us a kick of inspiration throughout the day, and for the really passionate ones, even ease us into a laid-back evening. Everyone has their own signature go-to caffeine shot—and Breville Philippines is here to make sure that we keep our intimate relationship with our favorite cups even in the comfort of our homes.

    To celebrate its tenth year of providing good cups of coffee, brand is throwing a month-long Coffee Festival—its second after last year’s widely successful event. While the celebration will be held virtually, the message remains the same: Breville is here to help everyone enjoy cafe-quality coffee at home by connecting everyone to the experts.

    Part of the month-long event is The Breville Coffee Hub, a series of Facebook Live Sessions which will feature experienced coffee masters who will share their insights and experience about the food, beverage, and wellness industry in general. Featuring experts like Chef Edward David Mateo of the La Royale Patisserie Food Group, Dave Dource—Academic Director of Barista Guild Asia – Philippine Chapter, and award-winning chef Louise Mabulo, the event opens the doorway for everyone to achieve their own Masterchef dreams.

    Learn about how to make coffee-flavored desserts with Chef Mateo on September 4 and learn tips and techniques on how to pull off latte art with Dave Dource on September 5.

    Chef Mabulo takes over on September 11 to teach about how to maximize coffee for both food and non-food uses/

    Other events will include virtual sessions on how to use coffee for cooking, the art of science of third-wave coffee, and many more.

    Aside from these, however, Breville will also be having the Pour Your Art Out: A Virtual Latte Art Challenge which will tap into the creative side of the coffee culture. In this year’s session, the brand invites talented baristas and latte artists to compete by creating their best latte designs.

    The third part of the event is the Coffee Rush Challenge, the first virtual baking competition that the brand will be holding during its festival.
