About Popoy's Kapihan

I'm Manny, and this is our story.

The idea of Popoy's Kapihan started during the infamous pandemic of 2020. During the lockdown, I got stuck in the province and was craving for good coffee. I brought my french press with me, but it was not strong nor good enough. I 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.


I started making espresso-based drinks with the mokapot; the first one was an iced mocha because I wanted to copy the iced mocha of a certain coffee chain. After some time, I remembered that I wanted to bring northern Vietnam's coconut coffee here because it was one of the best coffee drink I've ever had. I 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 my taste, I was happy and consuming them on a daily basis. It dawned on me, since I was just in the garage working on my software projects the entire day, why not share this good coffee to other people? They might like it too! And so I tried to ask my 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 is my mother's dog. He's the CEO of Popoy's Kapihan:


He might look small and cute, but on top of his CEO duties, he's also a fierce guard at the coffee shop.
