Dec 13, 2019

Blend PH, the country’s fastest-growing P2P platform, is thrilled to announce its new partnership with 1740 Coffee Genesis, a coffee shop chain that prides itself in its home-grown handcrafted coffee. Unlike other coffee concepts that focus on raw materials of foreign origins, 1740 offers a selection of the best Philippine coffee variants, which can surely give patrons a prime coffee experience that they won’t forget.

The brand pays homage to the historic year when coffee was first planted in our shores. “Let aroma and flavor of Philippine Coffee bring you back to 1740, the year that the first coffee plant was introduced in Lipa, Batangas by a Spanish Franciscan monk. 1740 is the beginning of the Philippine Coffee industry, the Coffee Genesis,” writes the company on its website.

While this coffee company strives to be as popular as the other chains, it strives to have a community impact. Every cup purchased from 1740 Coffee Genesis supports the livelihood of a local coffee farmer. With thoughtfully grown and prepared selections, Pinoys would truly appreciate the sophisticated, local feel of the products on offer whether it is served in-house or for takeaway.k out your options on

Customers of 1740 can expect high-quality coffee and non-coffee-based products with an even richer flavour. With the tagline “Choose. Grind. Brew. Enjoy. Repeat,” its carefully curated and crafted products can surely impress even some of the most discerning coffee connoisseurs. Items like Lakan, which is coffee that comes from 100% Liberica beans; Ambo, a Robusta and Arabica blend; Harana, an Arabica, Robusta, and Excelsa blend; plus single-origin options Pengie (Bukidnon Arabica) and Marahuyo (Sagada Arabica)  take front and center in the menu.

Riding the bubble tea craze of recent years, 1740 also started offering concept frappes, bubble coffee, bubble milk, and a fruit tea line called Healthy ConcepTea.

For those who dream of having their own coffee shop, they can be part of 1740 Coffee Genesis as they are on the lookout for entrepreneurs who want to own and operate this type of business in their location. Franchise costs start at PHP 450,000 for a 4 sqm beverage kiosk. A counter cafe measuring 18-36 sqm would cost PHP 950,000, while a full cafe around 60 sqm would entail a PHP 3,500,000 investment.

Blend PH is overjoyed to help start 1740 in its expansion nationwide starting with an initial batch of franchisees. With this partnership, potential business owners can apply for a franchise loan on the borrowing platform and wait for a lender to finance the application.
