Are you out in San Fernando City, La Union and craving for an artsy nook to hunker down and work?
Navigate to your closest coffee connoisseur and get your hands on local exclusive blends, then you’ll be whipped by the Rizzpresso, a coffee nook that is found in Luna town.
Rizzpresso is one of magical cafés that transmits tranquility and positive vibes as soon as you enter.
The cute café, which is owned by Rizza Villanueva, started to serve coffee enthusiasts on June 2, 2021.
The interior has a very artsy, with white walls, modern vibe that is as refreshing as its coffee.
“Aside from this tiny cafe, I also have a customized and mobile cart. Since I'm an introvert, talagang out of my comfort zone, but I tried it and decided to park it at Baluarte kasi iyon ang tourist spot sa Luna,” said Villanueva.
Forget how you normally drink your coffee, order either black or white, and choose from the latest freshly roasted specialty coffee beans according to your taste buds.
And you will be rewarded with an exquisite pour over that will make you drool.
Attention to detail is highlighted here, where every cup of coffee is expertly crafted and served inside a charming cup.
On the menu are 12 blends as well as some seasonal fruity options like strawberry soda, strawberry latte, among others.
In addition, the cafe offers a local drip coffee which is a pour over coffee prepared through a cloth filter and a popular brewing method.
“Our drip coffee is made to order, para at least, freshly grinded ‘yong beans tsaka mas masarap din ‘yong coffee. Bubuhusan mo lang siya ng mainit na tubig,” she said.
You’ll also find a few baked goodies to pair with your coffee such as s’mores cookies, burnt basque cheesecake, and cream cheese garlic bun personally made by the owner.
“Nasa goal ko ang mag-extend ng shop, gawing mas maayos at mas maraming dine in tables dito sa aking cafe and also to come-up with a pop up cafe here in La Union,” she said.
Where to find the spot?
The cafe sits along the street of Barangay Victoria, so the walk to the cafe feels like an excursion through history.
The shop is open every Tuesday and Sunday, 1pm to 6pm.
So, when in need of a caffeinated pit stop, make sure to swing by this coffee stand.
It is a longstanding fixture in Luna and is where locals go when they need perking up. (JCR/AMB/KJCR, PIA La Union)
