The inspiring story of Caffeinated











FRESH from a monthlong specialty barista training at Jamaican F&B. Kent Lamparas dipped into being an entrepreneur and estabiished his own cafe. From a home-based business selling bottléd brewed coffee here in Cagayan de Oro City in August 2021, Kent decided to erect.a pop-up stand last December at Gaston Park and registered it at DTI by the apt name Caffeinated. With his delicious concoctions, patrons would always drop by during the two hours Kent is staying there every night except Sundays. In fact, he was able to serve a total of 120 cups a night! By February, Kent drumned up his profits and established a kiosk at Bravehearts Arcade in Carmen near GSIS.



Caffeinated offers hot (brewed coffee, butter coffee, hot chocolate) and cold drinks (caramel macchiato, French vanilla, Spanish latte, Vietnamese coffee, double choc mocha, sweet tea). Today as his business continues to boom, Kent Lamparas is also offering a mobile coffee bar for events such as weddings, birthdays, debuts, corporate engagements and even outdoor concerts such as the recent back to back stint of December Avenue and Zack Tabudlo. The mobile coffee bar is inclusive of bar setup, barista, three hours of service, 1:1 coffee serving, choice of coffee, free coffee tasting for two and custom cup label. Caffeeinated is also a member of the respected Philippine Coffee Guild. Here in Caffeinated, everybody is welcome.
