The Madge Café overcomes the change that modernization of the society as it still practices the traditional way of brewing since 1951. They brew the coffee using a kettle and “kolador”. The coffee base is very simple as it is only composed of hot water and coffee powder. It also showcases Ilonggo products through the coffee beans they are using which are locally produced.
