Coffee is more than just a drink for most of us. It has practically become a social accessory.

Coffee is usually a go-to beverage when it’s time to meet up with friends. It’s just too bad that meeting up with friends in coffee shops isn’t such a good idea these days. It’s still safer to stay home these days.

However, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying some great coffee. Quality coffee can be delivered to your home.

There’s no need for you to rely on the big coffee brands because there are home-based brands that are as good … if not … even better.

Get To Know Pau

For Pau, coffee is personal. He’s super hands-on with Columbia St. Coffee.

When did you start Columbia St. Coffee?

“I started selling my coffee just this June of 2020. I had just quit my banking job due to the pandemic and thought I should at least do something productive. I’ve always wanted to sell coffee so might as well give it a try.”

How did you come up with the name?

“Basically, Columbia Street is the street I live on. Also, it’s a nice play of a particular type of coffee bean even though I use a variety of beans.”

What makes you very passionate about coffee?

“Multiple factors. Firstly, there’s the health aspect. Coffee has been my pre-workout drink of choice. I used down absurd energy drinks regardless of any negative impact it can do on my health. Then, of course, coffee is known to be a good source of antioxidants.”

He adds:

“But what really got me passionate about coffee is that it is not just a simple drink. You have different brewing methods to experiment with such as pour-over or french press just to name a few. Then there is the variety of beans to choose from. Our local beans are tremendous. There are also beans from around the world that I want to try out. Recently, I’ve been roasting my own beans which is another thing that tickles my curiosity. There are so many factors that you can brew a unique cup every time.”

Pau in his element.

Describe your coffee?

“Personal. I think that’s the best way for me to describe my coffee. I am still learning how to make my cup better. I like to think that every time someone orders from me they are having a taste of my coffee journey.”

Where do you get your beans?

“As of the moment, I buy from different local sellers who source their beans from local farmers. I still buy international beans from time to time in order to give other sources a try.”

How does Columbia St. Coffee stand out among the rest?

“Honestly, it’s unique. Just like any other barista, coffee seller, or cafe owner, I have my own taste in coffee. It’s not better nor is it worse than others. The coffee that I put out is a cup that I personally like. Hopefully, others would like it too.”

How do you see Columbia St. Coffee in the next 5 years?

“It would be a dream come true to be able to put up my own cafe.”

What’s the perfect blend for you?

“Double shot of espresso and steamed milk.”
