I happened to be present when they had their grand opening on a sunny Saturday last 7 May 2016. We learned a bit about the history of Hausbrandt Caffe, about Hausbrandt Caffe's brew your own coffee experience, and what else Hausbrandt Caffe had to offer for Cebuanos.

History of Hausbrandt Caffe

Hermann Hausbrandt was a captain of Austrian Merchant Marine. He provided a solution to one of the long standing problems of coffee which is transport and storage. In 1892, he started a business in Trieste that roasted and sold coffee. At present, Hausbrandt Caffe is able to sell more than 4,000 tons of roasted coffee every year translating to around 600 million cups of espresso.

Brew Your Own Coffee at Hausbrandt Caffe

One of the things that Hausbrandt Caffe wants to highlight is their own unique brew your own coffee experience using the Bialetti Moka pot. More commonly known to Italians as el makinita, this coffee making machine is said to be present in more than 80% of Italian households. Manufactured since the early 1950's, Bialetti has made more than 200 million coffee makers to date. At Hausbrandt, one can use the Bialetti Moka pot to brew four different coffee preparations: Americano, Caffe Latte, Cappuccino, and Moka (espresso).

What Else is Available at Hausbrandt

I also tried some pastries at Hausbrandt. I had some black forest cake and mango mousseline.

The black forest cake was priced at PhP 210 while a slice of the mango mousseline was sold at PhP 170. Both are good dessert choices after a good meal.
