About Ballast

A ballast is meant to give balance to something that is otherwise unstable.

Our brand is one that embodies such a meaning. We actively promote Ballast to our neighborhood, students, and professionals - to the morning rush and the afternoon fix. We're here for those who just need some space from all the hustle and bustle.

But why Ballast? What makes us any different from other brands? In a word - Barako. A coffee varietal rarely seen in your local shop. It's super smooth, creamy, and truly unique. Come over to Ballast Coffee and find your balance.

What we will accomplish with your prepayments

We constantly want the shop to evolve into something the local community would appreciate. We would use the pre-payments for shop improvements and special events.

Coming soon...

Please let me know as soon as their Credibles are available.
