Sam recently opened his newest business venture Third District, a specialty coffee shop with partner Dominic Hernadez last March 13, 2014. It's called Third District because it's located in Quezon City's 3rd district. Their store offers Brewed, Espresso, Gelato Coffees and pancakes. Their beans are imported from Forty Ninth Parallel in Vancouver Canada and will be getting some from Negros to give opportunity to local producers. They will also be offering breakfast meals, sandwiches and cakes anytime soon. They would like to maintain the price just below P200 to make it more affordable for students. Also they partner with Afters, the best Gelato in Morato by owner Vincent Lim Fideles to give customers a new experience and taste.
Third District's interior is cozy and made of bricks to give customers a good feel of freedom and relaxation. Third District is located right across Ateneo de Manila University, near 7-11 and RCBC Savings Bank. You can call them at 434-1079. Sam might be brewing the coffee for you if he is there! He and Dominic paid and studied coffee making and blending for 3days in Hongkong for $500 each!
Here are the photos I took during the soft opening and blessing.
