About Popoy's Kapihan
We are Popoy's Kapihan, and this is our story.
The idea of Popoy's Kapihan started during the infamous pandemic of 2020. During the lockdown, we got stuck in the province and was craving for good coffee. We brought our french press with us, but it was not strong nor good enough. We decided to get a moka pot. For those who are not familiar, a moka pot is an Italian invention in brewing a coffee by means of passing pressurised boiling water through the ground coffee. The result is a strong coffee somewhere between a french press and an espresso maker.
We started making espresso-based drinks with the mokapot; the first one was an iced mocha because we wanted to copy the iced mocha of a certain coffee chain. After some time, We remembered that we wanted to bring northern Vietnam's coconut coffee here because it was one of the best coffee drink we've ever had. We began crafting and perfecting the product, hoping to deliver a nice cold drink with just enough sweetness to capture the delicious taste of coconut coffee.
After "polishing" the coffee products according to our taste, we were happy and consuming them on a daily basis. It dawned on us, why not share this good coffee to other people? They might like it too! And so we tried to ask our friends, relatives, and family to try the different coffee beverages, so we can further fine-tune the mix and adjust the taste to the general consensus.
Also started thinking of other stuff we needed if we're gonna offer this to public, like take-out cups, better glassware, digital measuring tools for precision, environmental concerns, and processes. Thinking about the name of the coffee shop was also a challenge, but good thing Popoy was there to inspire us, and thus Popoy's Kapihan was born.
Who is Popoy?
Popoy was our dog. At the time of this update, he just passed away and we loved him very much. He was the CEO of Popoy's Kapihan:
He might look small and cute, but on top of his CEO duties, he was also a fierce guard at the coffee shop.
