Having a hobby or deep interest on something enrich our lives in many ways when we decide to pursue a passion that feels close to our soul, whether its art, music or even food.
Passion, culture, and taste are three worlds that definitely collided during Breville’s Coffee & Creations Event that was held at Rustan’s Ayala Cebu recently. The event, which was rooted in the world of coffee and its rich culture, branched out to the realm of art and candle-making during its three-day run.
The workshop opened with the Coffee & Canvas Painting Workshop with Philippine-based and award-winning contemporary modern artist Bisai. In a creative twist to the session, participants were given the chance to create their masterpieces using coffee as their medium. The results are artworks that are not only rustic but also authentic as the different shades of coffee were used to bring depth to the artwork using watercolor techniques. The participants also had the pleasure to enjoy sipping coffee during the session, all made from Breville’s top-of-the-line espresso machines.
The Coffee & Canvas Painting Workshop shows the versatility of coffee, not only as a medium that can tickle the taste but also the creativity of people. The same thing can be said for the Sip & Pour event with Chandler Candles which had its participants enjoy pouring their coffee and candles in a relaxing DIY session. Coffee-scented candles are not only relaxing to enjoy in your own home, but they’re also the perfect holiday gift for loved ones who have a special spot in their heart for the drink.
The three-day event also had a special demo by Breville Philippines Corporate Chef Chad Datu who taught how to make Mediterranean Inspired Ciabatta Bread, another perfect munch that can be paired seamlessly with your favorite espresso. True enough, the Coffee & Creations Workshop is the perfect demonstration of how art, taste, and culture intertwine—all in a humble cup of coffee.
