UCC Coffee marks its 23rd anniversary with a nostalgic nod to its origins through the introduction of the Classics Menu
Over the past two decades, UCC Coffee has transformed from a small coffee shop into a thriving coffee manufacturing company, fostering a community of coffee enthusiasts and spreading the joy of high-quality brews across the Philippines.
The journey began with Mr. Hubert Young’s passion for coffee, which led to the brand’s inception. The modest beginnings saw the establishment of a coffee shop that not only served exceptional coffee, but also captured the hearts of Filipinos. This venture gained momentum as patrons embraced the rich flavors and impeccable quality that they brought to their cups.
In 2013, a pivotal partnership was forged between Mr. Young and UCC Ueshima Coffee Co., Ltd., a Japanese titan with a remarkable 90-year legacy in producing premium coffee beans. This partnership birthed a manufacturing venture within the Philippines, becoming the conduit for distributing high-quality coffee beans and personalized coffee notes to aficionados throughout the nation.
UCC’s growth story, however, continues beyond coffee. Over the years, it has expanded its offerings, creating employment opportunities and branching out into various cities, from Metro Manila to Silang, Nuvali, Bacolod, Davao, and Cebu. The brand’s reach is not confined solely to coffee as it also extends to a delectable selection of foods that have charmed palates across the nation.
To commemorate this remarkable journey, UCC Coffee is unveiling their Classics Menu, an homage to its earliest offerings. The classics draw inspiration from the initial stores built in the early 2000s, namely the Vienna Cafe in Tomas Morato and Cafe Terrace in Fort Bonifacio.
The UCC Classics Menu is a testament to the brand’s evolution and innovation while paying homage to its roots. It features an array of beloved dishes, such as Japanese Seafood Soup Spaghetti, Sumiyaki Eel Spaghetti, Scallops and Mushroom Spaghetti, Bacon and Sausage Penne Gratin, Penne Arrabbiata, Chili Garlic Chicken Spaghetti, Chicken and Mushroom Risotto, Hamburg Curry Rice, Ebi Fry Curry Rice, Breakfast Frankfurter, Corned Beef Hash, Chicken Teriyaki and Eggplant Sandwich, UCC Classic Clubhouse, Cliffhanger, Tiramisu, Chocolate Ganache Cake, and Chocolate French Toast.
Additionally, UCC Coffee unveils UCC Sorbetes Affogato, a creative fusion that pays homage to heritage while embracing innovation. This limited-time delight harmoniously blends the richness of Filipino sorbetes with the excellence of UCC coffee, expertly crafted by their baristas to strike the perfect balance. Velvety sorbetes infused with flavors reminiscent of classic Filipino desserts like leche flan, ube halaya, keso and macapuno dance on the palate, elevated by the taste of UCC’s finest coffee. This innovative treat not only celebrates the culinary treasures of the Philippines, but also becomes a work of togetherness, inviting you to share its delightful fusion with loved ones and create enduring memories.
These culinary creations encompass the essence of UCC Coffee’s journey, bringing together flavors that have stood the test of time. The Classics Menu invites patrons to savor both the delectable offerings and the memories associated with their 23 years of unwavering commitment to customers. As the brand celebrates this milestone, they reaffirm their role as a cherished companion in crafting cherished memories over two decades of passionate service.
