Relaxed working spots: The ten best Coffices in Makati City

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Holding office in a coffee shop, aka a “coffice”, is a great way to filter out the distractions of home and boost your productivity levels. There’s no Playstation, overexcited dog or comfy bed to pull you away from work. Just a table, chair, steady supply of caffeine, and fast, free WiFi – the perfect work haven for freelancers, consultants and even corporate types who need a break from their regular cubicles!
