City of Dreams Manila amps up sustainability efforts with a holistic initiative on coffee and coffee making, further enhancing its eco-efficient operations.
Not only does its source coffee beans from local farmers, it also repurposes the used coffee grounds as organic fertilizers, and recycles the coffee capsules used in its guest rooms.
“As a socially and environmentally-responsible business, we are always looking for ways on how we can strengthen our sustainability practices through a holistic approach throughout the property. Our latest undertaking towards sourcing and repurposing coffee that we serve in our outlets reflects our commitment to reducing environmental impact and supporting the Philippine coffee industry, while at the same time enhancing our guests’ quality experience” said City of Dreams Manila Chief Operating Officer Kevin Benning.
The Roaster, a luxury integrated resort’s newest café located at The Garage VR zone and food park, uses locally sourced coffee.
As partnership with the Philippine Coffee Board Inc., City of Dreams Manila frequently sources fresh Arabica, Robusta and Liberica coffee beans from local farmers in Sulu, Benguet, Batangas and Cavite.
City of Dreams Manila also joined hands with Nespresso’s commitment to sustainability by taking an active part in the coffee brand’s capsule recycling program. As opposed to filling up landfills, the used coffee capsules, which are made from aluminum — a material that is infinitely recyclable — are collected from the rooms of the property’s three Forbes Stars-awarded luxury hotels Nuwa, Nobu and Hyatt Regency.
