Coffee lovers rejoice! The famous Japanese coffee chain Arabica, which suddenly halted its operations last year, is now coming back to the Philippines with two more stores!

Arabica Journal, the global social media account of the brand, shared a post last January 5 where they shared rendered layout pictures of the two upcoming Philippine locations as a “sneak preview,” showcasing the brand’s trademark percentage symbol logo and modern, minimalist interiors.

“Manila, we will restart our project this year with these stores,” the coffee chain said.

Filipino customers of the company are thrilled to see the independent coffee brand from Kyoto return to the Philippines, especially after three Arabica PH establishments abruptly closed without any notice in early January last year. Even the brand’s Instagram page suddenly became unavailable, which confused and alarmed customers.

Arabica previously said that their future expansion plans will not only be limited to Metro Manila, but also would also include other locations in the Philippines.

In 2018, Arabica PH established its first branch in Taguig City’s Bonifacio Global City, which was followed by a second BGC branch and a third at Mandaluyong City’s The Podium. The company promotes a “simple love for coffee and design” and currently has 140 locations worldwide.

There are no additional details yet as to when and where Arabica PH’s newest locations will open, but we’ll keep you posted!
