Some days, you find yourself in a situation wherein you need to do a ton of stuff in a short amount of time within a single day. Maddening thought, isn’t it? Now, let’s say that your brain is close to short-circuiting and you haven’t had enough sleep for the past – say, um… – two days. It’s a recipe for disaster!
But if you’re as plucky as I am (or if you really don’t have a choice because you’re stuck with the sitch thanks to procrastination), you won’t let any of that get in your way, right. Right: drastic situations call for drastic measures – so I say: bring on a bottle of Ininstant!
Ininstant is a bottled iced coffee sold at 18 Days, the coffee shop on the ground floor of the Insular Life building in Alabang. It’s a bold, somewhat jolting chilled brew toned down (so to speak) with fresh milk and muscovado sugar. It’s pleasantly bitter, somewhat nutty-flavored – quite different from the usual iced coffees commonly available in supermarkets.
This is due to the fact that Ininstant is a product of Coffee Alamid whose stock in trade – quite obviously – is the rich, somewhat fruity-flavored, and full-bodied kape alamid or kopi luwak (But I’ll save the story of that for another time. ;)). That said, what you get is a rich, perfectly brewed bottle of coffee that makes you wonder if you actually paid only P 20.00 for.
And, if you’re at 18 Days and scribbling furiously at one of the tables, grab a square of their moist, lush, and flavorful chocolate cake (only P 35.00 a square!) because it goes so well with an Ininstant – and you need all the calories you can get. 😉
