“I just wanted a space [where people can] share coffee and knowledge, enjoy coffee, have conversations over coffee, 'yun yung vision ko talaga, says Kit Singson, one of the owners of the newly opened hangout along Katipunan Avenue. “Kasi we are championing Filipino coffee kasi sobrang laki ng potential niya. We source our beans from Bukidnon and Cordillera.”

This champion of the small scale producer of superb coffee beans shares space and vision with Vongarde Art Gallery. “The vision is to help small people, start up, and scale up. Ganoon din yung gallery eh. I came from commercial galleries catering to masters," explains Dan Villacruel, gallerist of Vongarde Art Gallery and also a partner in the café. “Artist din ako. And nakita ko yung struggle nung artist na naka-akyat ng gallery level so I wanted to share my knowledge regarding the market, collectors, how to scale up from being a start up na artist. Ito yung space for artists na nagsa-start pa lang."
