Hyped and blessed to spot a Christian-enthused sports caff in the heart of a busy lane along Hensonville road in Angeles City.
HeBrews Coffee Cafe is a brainchild of a passionate hotel and restaurant professional and Christian Bornagain convert Marvin Eric Isip Buan, still a bachelor at 29 years old.
He brews coffee. Enjoy your daily dose of caffeine with barista Marvin Eric Isip Abuan, owner of HeBrews Cafe.
“One month pa lang itong nag-ooperate and it simply started from a silly joke na hindi dapat babae ang nagtitimpla at nagseserve ng coffee (she brews) kaya naging HeBrews. Then later on naging serious na since all of us in the team ay magkakasama naman sa Christian Church,” said Buan.
Joining the young restaurateur is Mina Licup Knobel, owner of the lot area, Arnel Lazarra, chef, and Sandra Claire Esperida, dining assistant.
“Hindi nakikipagkumpetensya ang HeBrews sa mga neighbor cafes nito. In fact we respect and love them. We just want to make our own signature by simply gathering and motivating people to love and worship God. But we want to let everyone know na kahit sino ay pwedeng pumunta dito sa cafe regardless of their religion,” he emphasized.
Buan being asked what boosted his faith said he was once a self –acclaimed Christian not by heart and faith until he was invited to attend a church service, and from there on he found spiritual guidance and proved God’s love for him.
Pray, dine and play.
This humble coffee house confers you the freedom to do what pleases you except for smoking.
The Christian Mission. A cell group of students from the University of the Philippines, Clark strengthen their faith and camaraderie through a regular bible study at the Hebrews Cafe. The cafe also serves as a formation center for individuals or groups seeking peace of mind and spiritual growth to meet life’s challenges.
Food for the heart and soul. Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich paired with salt-free fries, guilt-free Bacon Cheesy Fries and Exodus Spicy Pasta in herbs and spices are among their house specialty prepared by Chef Arnel Lazarra, a person with disability, who was inspired and hired by Buan to pursue his passion for cooking.
Aside from this, HeBrews offers pizza, steak, desserts, coffee, frappe and fruit shakes and smoothies perfectly crafted for health lovers.
Quit playing games with my heart. Show your wit and might while enjoying scrabble, chess, snake and ladder and darts with your family, friends and other colleagues.
Buan said that his team is planning to branch out in SM City Clark to win more souls closer with God.
“Marami pa silang pwedeng iexpect sa HeBrews Coffee Shop, soon we will be offering ice cream overload with a twist,” Buan added.
HeBrews Coffee Shop is located at A.L.E. Building #132, Narciso Street, Josefa Subdivision, Malabanias. Angeles City.
