How do you like your coffee? Do you want it pressed or poured-over? Perhaps, do you like preparing it hand-dripped or brewed to perfection?

Coffee, for most, is the morning wake-up call that pulls them out of the bed, and they have different ways to enjoy it. Some people on the go would never miss their old reliable French press in their morning routine while hurrying off to their work. For those who have time to enjoy the morning calm, pressed coffee is the best way to start their day. Adventurous spirits go for aeropress for that strong cup of morning java. An espresso-based coffee is that reward after a grueling meeting, or for just when you want to catch up with friends.

However you want your coffee, nothing beats preparing a cup (or two) using quality, freshly-roasted coffee beans that is ground right using Breville Smart Grinder Pro. The Breville conical burr grinder uses Dosing IQ technology, which allows for automatic adjustment on the dose whenever you change the grind. It has 60 different settings — from the coarsest to the finest grind — that allows coffee enthusiasts to maximize the flavors of their favorite brew. Whether you need cups for French press or shots for espresso, the Smart Grinder Pro gives you the right dose for your coffee needs.

“The type of grinder is very important because of the blades, the settings. The thing I like about this Breville Smart Grinder, it’s very easy to set. It’s digital, it shows you with the icon for espresso all the way to a plunger,” shares Michael Asuncion of Silca Coffee Roasting Company, a homegrown coffee company.

Founded by Enrile M. Asuncion in 1996, the founder’s coffee journey can be traced back in 1970s when Enrile and his wife Evelyn began exporting Philippine coffee worldwide, under the Evrile Enterprises. Soon, the company became one of the largest coffee exporters in the Philippines. In 1983, the couple founded Silca Trading in Bellevue, Washington to import the finest coffees from all over the world.

While coffee lovers have different preference to heighten their drinking experience and appreciation, Asuncion strongly believes that a good experience boils down to using the best coffee that have been naturally grown and harvested.

Believing that a good-quality grinder needs to have the best coffee beans for that deliciously memorable coffee experience, Breville Philippines and SilCa Coffee Roasting Company have been partners to educate people on coffee and give the best coffee experience.
