June 20, 2024 – Robinsons Hotels and Resorts is thrilled to announce the launch of its newest coffee blend, R Coffee, under the fitting tagline “It’s (ou)r coffee.” This signature blend is now available simultaneously across six Summit Hotel properties, enhancing the coffee experience for guests at Summit Hotel Greenhills, Grand Summit General Santos, Summit Ridge Tagaytay, Summit Hotel Galleria Cebu, Summit Hotel Naga, and Summit Hotel Tacloban.

R Coffee is a distinctive blend crafted with the unique promise of "Great Coffee Guaranteed." This blend combines 80% Arabica and 20% Robusta beans, roasted to a medium level to bring out the inherent qualities of each bean. Arabica beans contribute sweetness, a delicate aroma, and low acidity, while Robusta beans add boldness and chocolatey notes, creating a balanced and enjoyable cup.

How the Blend Was Created

The R Coffee blend is the result of meticulous sampling sessions involving hotel executives and guests. Weeks of tasting and refining were necessary to develop a taste profile that aligns with the preferences of both the brand and its customers.

Unique Characteristics and Taste Profile

The medium roast level of the R Coffee blend emphasizes the natural sweetness and delicate aroma of Arabica beans, along with the bold, chocolatey notes of Robusta. This results in a medium-bodied coffee with a smooth finish, less acidity, and a harmonious blend of sweet and savory notes.

Unlike many commercial coffee shops that often offer darker roasts or high-acidity, medium-light coffees, R Coffee caters to the typical Filipino palate. It offers strong, smooth coffee with a balanced aftertaste, making it a perfect choice for those who enjoy a robust yet refined cup.

The Cup

The bespoke cup design embodies the Filipino love for coffee, bridging rural and urban experiences.

Every detail is crafted to connect with customers at each touchpoint.

The Coffee Cart

As the main carrier of RCoffee, the coffee cart caters to individual guests seeking a great coffee experience, as well as groups hosting meetings, events, and celebrations. Each cart's design is tailored to its location, showcasing local culture, landmarks and tourist attractions. Examples include the famous tuna of General Santos City and the iconic bridge in Tacloban, making each coffee moment a celebration of local culture and heritage.

Launch Event

Guests at the launch event were greeted with the inviting scent of freshly brewed coffee and given a special mug as part of the celebration. Assigned seating will ensure a comfortable experience for all attendees. The main program, "Promise vs No Promise," featured interactive discussions between guests and RHR representatives, highlighting the brand's commitment to quality and immersing into the essence of having meaningful conversations over coffee.
