TriNoma, Quezon City

The Ueshima Coffee Company, or more commonly known as the UCC Coffee, sampled its famous coffee blends to bloggers in its newly opened Café Terrace located at TriNoma.

UCC prides itself with being the Total Coffee Company and its farm to cup quality control in pursuit of the best coffee in every cup of coffee they serve.

Each cup of gourmet UCC coffee is carefully siphoned brewed, one individual cup at a time. UCC rigurously train its baristas to master the technique that ensures each cup brings "Good Coffee Smiles."
"We at UCC have positioned our coffee as a ''Comfortable Solution'' and we aim to provide as many people as possible with the ''comfort'' and ''amenity'' that they seek through our coffee. Imagine the smile spreading across someone's face when they smell the rich aroma of coffee. Their smile intensifies when they tastes the delicious beverage. Smile after smile, connected by coffee. Now imagine this ''Good Coffee Smile'' repeated in scene after scene from your daily life. This is the responsibility of UCC, and it is our mission." - Tatsushi Ueshima, UCC President
The coffees we tasted were the House Blend, Sumiyaki Coffee and the Blue Mountain #1

UCC House Blend

Developed by UCC specifically for coffee house use. The UCC Blend is a mixture of different beans from around the UCC estates and a mixture of different roasts of beans from dark, medium, and light. It is a full bodied coffee with perfect levels of acidity, aroma, and smooth flavor intensity. This is the real perfect cup of coffee.


Sumiyaki, Japanese for "charcoal roast" is a mixture of different beans roasted until charcoal color. Espresso lovers, this is a strong dose of coffee. It has a deep rich aroma and smooth flavor minus the bitter taste.

Blue Mountain No.1
100% pure Jamaican blue mountain coffee, meticulously picked, sorted and roasted evenly to perfection. This coffee has been graded as the top coffee bean in the world.

After the coffee tasting and the breakfast, which has a different menu altogether from the lunch and dinner menus, we ended our meal right with the Sumiyaki Coffee Jelly, fresh homemade jelly cubes made from Sumiyaki coffee topped with vanilla ice cream served with coffee cream, and hefty servings of very rich portions of different kinds of cakes by Karen Young.

Part-and-Parcel (Trivias):
  • All the servers are HRIM graduates and are trained in rotation.
  • The uniforms they use are designed and custom made by famed Rajo Laurel
  • UCC now serves its All Day Breakfast Menu
