Are you a coffee junkie who needs a blast of caffeine to get you going? Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar offers a fix that suits different coffee preferences.

Managing Director Richard Torres explains the precious process of creating the Black Nitro. “We brew the coffee for 18 hours at a cold temperature, which increases the caffeine content but lessens the acidity. The next day, we infuse it with nitrogen. This reduces the bitter taste, it thickens the texture of the coffee and mildly sweetens it. It takes two days of love before drinking your cup,” he says with a sincere smile of the tedious toil.

The Black Nitro is a stellar beverage, smooth with a slightly bitter flavor; it pleases the palate with rich simplicity. While other coffee shops use the standard espresso for their base, Nitro 7 uses the Black Nitro as the base for all other drinks. You can truly savor the essence of the single origin Ethiopian Arabica beans!

Co-owner Mikel Antunez adds, “I believe we have the most ‘base flavored coffee,’ which becomes great for mixing with other flavors. Other cold brews have fruity undertones, and ours is more chocolatey.” It must be highlighted that nitrogen infused coffee shoots up the caffeine content by about 30% according to Richard’s research. Note that not only is it cold brew, a process that increases caffeine, on top of that it is also all nitrogen infused! This means you get double the punch but with less acidity and less bitterness. When you get a cup of joe from Nitro 7 you ought to be in for the long haul, this could just be your secret potion for long working days and nights or power meetings and presentations.

Now, if having it black is a bit much, you can try other flavored drinks from the Nitro Cold Brew selection, such as the Hazelnut Caramel Mocha. It is quite sublime. The distinct flavors surface with every refreshing sip like the nuttiness of the hazelnut. The suave intermingling of coffee and hazelnut makes an excellent combination, and the sweetness is just wow! You can go all out or do low to no sugar. Decide your sweetness level for any drink upon ordering.

If you are a sweet tooth, the Nitrocinnos are perfect for you. Devilishly sweet is an understatement. Indulge from a wide variety of sugar extravagance. You can start with the Dark Macadamia, this flavor makes an excellent mid-day dessert treat. Non-coffee options of all the Nitrocinnos are available if you wish.

For non-coffee drinkers, Nitro 7 has a tea selection under the Tea Brevé and Nitro Black Tea menus. Be reminded that even their tea (loose leaf black tea) is brewed then infused with nitrogen to uplift the quality of taste, and possibly bump up even the caffeine content of the tea as well. The Melon Tea Brevé is a wondrously creamy beverage. Brevé means the drink is with half crème and half milk. The melon taste rises as an afterthought.  If you miss Magnolia melon milk as a kid growing up in the ‘80s, this is the next best thing.

The Passion Fruit Black Tea is a dark rich romance of sour and sweet dancing on the palate. It tastes so real; you’ll almost forget that the tea is stirred in with passion fruit syrup. The Peach Black Tea is another must-try winner, a truly comforting blend, plus there’s also Strawberry Black Tea for the strawberry lovers.

Going back to coffee, partake of local brews in Nitro 7’s Drip Coffee Menu. Smell the mountain soil from the Benguet beans. Having a good ambiance elevates the coffee experience, and that’s what you’ll enjoy about the Nitro 7 kiosks. It’s open and yet private, giving you a way to unwind in a hectic surrounding. If you’re in the North, visit their island kiosk on the fourth floor of SM Megamall. If you’re in the South, their latest branch has just opened in SM Dasmariñas. Sometime this July 2018, they are set to launch in Eastwood City Walk.

One thing’s for sure; you can get the ultimate caffeine power kick when you want it; however you want it at Nitro 7.
