If you are a coffee lover and find yourself in the City of Golden Friendship after COVID-19, you owe it to yourself to pay a pilgrimage to H Proper Coffee Roasters which has been built by one such fanatic. The H in H Proper is Harley Keith Yu, and his shrine to coffee rivals any coffee shop you’d find anywhere in the Philippines, including Metro Manila.
If you do find yourself in H Proper, take some time to look around the space because it really says a lot about the husband and wife. Amid the cool concrete walls is a warm space. Cups, coffee equipment, and bags of coffee from the couple’s travels decorate the café.
Wendy manages the food made up of high-end breakfast entrees while the husband gets to play with the toys for the coffeeholic big boys.
On the counter is the chromed crown jewel of the café, a La Marzocco Leva X. The Ferrari of espresso machines where baristas pull espressos. On one side is a wall of test tubes containing beans from all over the world.
Ordering an americano, or a latte, or a cappuccino is one thing. But in my opinion, the pour overs are the star in H Proper. Harley is obsessed with coffee, and his obsession has been passed on to his baristas. Thus, the baristas are able to get the best out of the beans with proper temperatures, proper brew ratios, and proper pouring methods.
