COFFEEHOLIC is a family-run business owned and managed by Mr. and Mrs. Tara Jane Vargas. The couple and their children have spent the last decade travelling around Asia and Europe, living and working in many of those countries, and inevitably experiencing a range of coffee cultures. Overseas, they would juggle their time teaching English, conducting international exams, and looking after their young children. With coffee being an essential part of their busy day in the TEFL industry, they envisioned opening a shop that would also bring different types of coffee from Italy, Vietnam, Turkey, the Middle East, Malaysia, and Ireland to their home city-Cagayan de Oro. They admit to have been amazed by the power of a proper coffee, which gives them enough energy to stay active throughout the day and boost their creativity. Not only has coffee helped their being workaholic, they have themselves become coffee-holic!
Obsessed with the idea of bringing the Southeast, Middle Eastern and Italian coffee taste to the Philippines lead to the birth of the global coffee concept. That is why two years ago, they started to put things together in order to plan for the coffee shop’s establishment in CDO.
Using Italian coffee as basic blend, a variety of fusions are made for perfection to suit different tastes of connoisseurs and ordinary coffee drinkers. Additionally, local coffee beans are used in a range of Filipino favorites. Coffeeholic’s owners, being quite familiar with the specialty coffees, make sure that they serve authentic Vietnamese or Irish coffee. As a company, Coffeeholic aims at giving its clientele a vibrant kick start of the day, a relaxing downtime and an invigorating snap to boost creativity, thus enhance one’s experience. With quality a top priority in both its products and customer service, Coffeeholic prides at keeping affordability in mind without compromising the essential values that serve its foundation: excellence, efficiency and elegance.
