Franchsing Figaro coffee shop interests me, too. This coffee house is one of my top five. Their tempting concoctions of coffee are a heartwarming experience.

Im a coffee lover and tried almost all well known coffee shops.... Still all the same flavor despite we know there are 4 variety of beans to excluding specialty beans like civet varieties. And the only coffee shop that is far different from the rest that I tasted and had a distinctive bold forest flavor is from Barako Haus Bf Homes branch with cheapest price at Php 85 unlimited already and has many choices of beans too including civet beans... Think they are using liberica variety which we know is the rarest of all..I learned they are supplier of 5 star hotels too.. planning to go back to get franchise of my own with their affordable investment package of only Php 3.5M with a function room... Surely Im a winner...

Cayen on December 23, 2014:

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Gloria Jean's sound attractive,twentyfive,as a fresh face would do better around this area,than the idea of a franchised fast-food coffee as Starbucks would be seen as;)
