Can’t live without coffee? Us, too. A recent study, in fact, found that nearly half of millennials spend more money on coffee than savings—a clear indication of our love (no, addiction) for the stuff. In spite of the alarming statistic, most of us remain unapologetic about procuring a morning cuppa. With a Starbucks on every corner of the Metro, how can we resist the siren song of a larger-than-Venti latte?

Well, there is one way—and lucky for caffeine fanatics, it won’t involve sacrificing your fix. It just involves making a cup at home. Homemade coffee can be inexpensive and satisfying for as long as you use the right beans. Below, we list 6 local blends that will leave you buzzing with delight. Most under P500 a bag!

1. Ultra Green Coffee, P500
As you probably know by now, green coffee is the healthier alternative for your regular cuppa. It contains 6 superfoods, plus chlorogenic acid—a component that helps aid in weight loss. This particular variant comes in sachets, which are really convenient to carry around. That way, you can enjoy its earthy, nutty taste any time you need a fix!

2. Café-te-riá Jacinto Blend Coffee, P149
Sourced straight from the fertile soils of the Sagada mountains, these beans have a woody and full-bodied flavor with a sharp aftertaste. They’re perfect for those of us who prefer our coffee strong and punchy. But unlike most potent blends, these won’t leave any lingering bitterness in the mouth.

3. Figure of Beans Hazelnut Beans, P550
For those who prefer to ease into their day, these hazelnut-infused beans will gently lift you out of slumber. But do not mistake their mild taste and sweet flavor for the sugar-laden, instant stuff. They are harvested and handpicked in the mountains of Cordillera to ensure premium quality in every bag.

4. Kaffea Coffee With Coco Sugar, P220
While some of us take our coffee black, others like it with a little sugar. (No judgement!) If you’re one of the latter, this creamy mix might be your speed. It contains natural coconut sugar, as well as collagen and glutathione—which are both incredibly beneficial for the skin. There’s no sweeter deal than that!

5. DipBrew Coffee Co. Classic Blend Coffee Bag, P240
This special blend of beans hits every taste on your tongue. It combines sweet, nutty, and fruity notes for the perfect pick-me-up. Regardless of your preferences, you will enjoy its smooth, clean flavor. Take it first thing in the morning or to combat your afternoon slump to get the most from your cup.

6. Leiania House of Beauty Royal CoffTea, P295
When a particular drink offers the benefits of your favorite skincare product, it becomes an instant staple. This variation is no exception! Aside from caffeine, it infuses organic rose hip seed, licorice root, and green tea in each packet. Every sip will leave you brighter and more beautiful—and of course, more energized, too.
