FROM CROP TO CUP:
Figaro’s Advocacy Figaro’
Figaro Foundation Corporation & Figaro Coffee Company, Inc.
The Figaro Coffee Company was established in 1993 by a group of seven friends, whose zeal for coffee was acquired from their travels all over the world. The name Figaro came from a character in Gioacchino Rossini’ Rossini’s opera, The Barber of Seville.
This passion began as a hobby of brewing, tasting and experimenting with many varieties of coffee from around the globe. It soon grew into a business, with the purpose of sharing the fine art of European coffee culture with as many people as possible.
The first Figaro Coffee Store formally opened in November 1993, a simple kiosk located in one of Manila's premiere malls Glorietta) (Glorietta) known then as the F Store. Originally, Figaro offered a selection of specialty coffees from around the world, always freshly brewed, as well as a variety of coffee and tea paraphernalia.
The seven friends managed the Coffee Store themselves, serving their customers personally, and teaching them how to brew and enjoy their own coffee at home. This kind of personalized service endeared Figaro to its customers, generating a devout following of deeply serious coffee drinkers.
We provide excellent coffee and gracious service creating a memorable experience for people who appreciate high quality coffee and demand for exceptional service.

Beans… The Secret of Our Beans…
We will always practice good governance and actively sociopursue the cause of socio-cultural and environmental concerns. We will always give you quality service, quality products & value for your money. Our Beans are Always Freshly Roasted. Coffee beans need to be roasted to bring out their irresistible flavor and aromatics. However, once they are roasted, they begin to deteriorate. This is why, freshness is very important. The sooner a roasted bean gets into a cup, the better the flavor.
