Interview by: Maribel Avelis
Heads up, coffee junkies! A new set of beverages just made FamilyMart your new favorite destination for a satisfying yet affordable caffeine fix. Blended exclusively by renowned Japanese coffee company UCC for FamilyMart, this new line of drinks called ‘Coffee Creations’ is yours to enjoy starting September 16.
Upping the ante in the quality of coffee concoctions you can find at the convenience store, FamilyMart has come up with its Coffee Creations line using UCC coffee. “The name itself is coffee creations since we don’t want to be limited sa basic, and there’s a big opportunity in launching or creating new a variants for a coffee offering,” said Angelo J. Balajadia, Brand Manager of FamilyMart, in an interview with COOK Magazine.” Some want milk, sweet, black, so those are the total variants on offer. This is just a start. In the coming months will be releasing a lot of others flavors.”
The use of UCC gives the coffee a reputation not offered at any other fast food or convenience store because UCC has a reputation for quality. “Of course, with UCC we are, leveraging our heritage. FamilyMart is from Japan, and UCC is the leading coffee company in Japan, “explained Balajadia.” In terms of credibility and taste wise, no doubt they can deliver. “
While the price is higher than basic coffee brands, FamilyMart among other convenience stores is considered a bit more upmarket and it’s par for the course.”It’s reasonably priced. It’s a UCC brand,” said Balajadia. This is a brand that might entice some who are particular about their coffee and normally buy from premium chains to try something less expensive, and others who normally just buy 3-in-one, to want to try better quality coffee.
Coffee Creations’ hot brewed coffee comes in two serving sizes – 12oz (P55) and 16oz (P65). Every order comes with sachets of sugar and creamer so you can enjoy your cup that perfectly suits your liking. Meanwhile, the Iced variation is available in a 16 oz serving size, which is served black (P60), sweetened (P60) or with milk (P65). Whichever way you like it, no matter what time of the day, each cup offers the most bring for your buck.
FamilyMart is also promises to watch out for new offerings with food. It is going to lean in on strengthening the Japanese roots of the brand, and the public will be made aware of it soon enough. Coffee Creations is available in over 70 Family Mart Stores in Luzon.
