Lumawag: An afternoon at Purge


IT WAS a Wednesday when my friend texted me if we could have a quick cup of coffee in the afternoon at Purge.

At first, I had second thoughts but eventually said yes. It has been a while since I visited Purge Coffee Roaster. The last time I visited it was in February this year.

It was quite a slow afternoon for the coffee shop when we visited it.

I took a quick look of the place to see if there are any changes since my last visit. One big difference I can compare from the previous visit is now they have more coffee beans on display. If you are looking for specialty coffee or a good bag of coffee beans, you can buy here.

For our merienda we had waffles but while waiting we started with a pour over of Kenya and Costa Rica coffee beans. Those were a really good cup of coffee. I find the Kenya to be quite strong because I felt awaken after having a cup of it.

For the waffles, we ordered their Banana Walnut Waffle topped with chocolate ice cream and Red Velvet Waffle with vanilla ice cream. I think their waffles are much better now and an improvement from the ones I had last time. It is either they made some changes or it has just been a while since I had their waffles but those waffles we had were really good.

My favorite was the Red Velvet Waffle. That cream cheese sauce was delicious. I will ask for extra sauce next time I come here. However, while it was good, I did expect it to be a red waffle. Nonetheless, this was a great waffle.

We also ordered the Mum’s Spaghetti but I was not able to take a photo of it. I also find it to be an improvement from the one I had last time. But again, it might just have been a while since I had their spaghetti.

It was nice coming back here. The dining and coffee experience here has definitely improved from the last time I visited.
