Welcome Home to Java Jive

By | Friday, November 23, 2012 3 comments

If you're someone like me who's always scouting for great places to unwind, chill or just be productive with studies and work, then surely the first thing that will pop into your mind is a coffee shop. However, some of the coffee shops I've been too here in Davao, although relaxing, are not that conducive for productivity, at least for me. Others don't have comfortable chairs/couches, many don't have fast Wi-fi and some won't even let you charge your gadget for free. But last Sunday, I was glad to discover one of the newest coffee shops in the metro that made it up to my list of go-to places in terms of relaxation and productivity.

Have you been to Java Jive?

Java Jive: Coffee-Tea-Soda-Music is a home-inspired, Filipino-themed music cafe where one can avail any or all of the following: drink coffee, tea and soda blends, enjoy Davao-produced sweets and savory dishes, and listen to the music of  local homegrown talents from the city. One thing that sets this coffee shop apart from the rest is its music - they only play original Pinoy music (OPM) and on special days, you get to listen to a live band playing their originals and covers. Proudly, it's the first of its kind here in the metro.

Its passion for music is evident in its interior design. Looking up, one can see a uniquely-designed ceiling depicting piano keys starting from broken piano keys (representing loud music) and ending in a full scale (symbolizes relaxing music). Its interior also includes an actual entertainment stage where live music is being played. On casual days, that same stage is converted to a regular seating area to accommodate more customers. Aspiring musicians from the local scene can get to perform and promote their music in this cafe.

Aside from great music, Java Jive also offers a wide selection of coffee, tea and soda blends and they do not only limit to serving pastries alongside with their drinks and refreshments but they also serve classic Filipino meals we truly love. This coffee shop also uses products which are proudly made and manufactured here in the Philippines. 


Here are some of Java Jive's most sought-after selections:
Juris Red Velvet Cupcake
Banana Caramel Cupcake
Tuna Melt Savory Crust

Native Durian Sweet Crust
 Selection: Java Jive offers a variety of refreshments ranging from coffee, teas and soda-blended drinks. In terms of meals and pastries,  Java Jives offers classic Pinoy meals, delightful pastries and all-time flavourful ensembles. That's actually a multitude of flavors to choose from to satisfy the craving palate.

Price: Prices of drinks range from Php 65.00 to Php 300.00 (for Brewed Davao Civet Coffee) while meals range from Php 135.00 to Php 225.00. Pastries and other food selections range from Php 35.00 to Php 150.00. I find their price quite affordable compared to other coffee shops plus their food servings give a great value for your money.

Ambiance: The place is perfect for relaxation and productivity. In fact, this coffee shop has a controlled sound system so noise is not a problem for working/studying people. On special days, the live band only plays until midnight so people can still work on being productive after chilling out. The couches are spacious and comfortable, just right for bonding with family and friends. It also has a warm lighting set-up which adds up to the perfect ambiance for study and relaxation.

Service: The crew at Java Jive greets you with "Welcome Home" instead of the usual "Good morning". That courtesy is distinctively unique to Java Jive.

Amenities: Java Jive is open for business 24/7 and boasts of a fast and strong unlimited WiFi connection and free gadget charging. However, they do change their WiFi password daily. They also have an exclusive parking area near the building and the soon-to-be-completed first ever electronic hydraulic parking in the city. 

A unique product of brilliant and creative minds, coupled with the passion for music, food, family and a proud Davaeño spirit, Java Jive welcomes you home.
