  • Coffee Boost at Fluff Koppi Cafe in Mabitac Laguna

    Coffee Boost at Fluff Koppi Cafe in Mabitac Laguna

    Riding up to the mountains of Mabitac, Laguna is no walk in the park. Elevation rises up to at least 370 meters above sea level. And unless you’re riding a motorized vehicle along this winding Manila East road, the climb here can easily take your breath away. Not just because of the scenery, but literally. It takes effort and can take much from you. I’m glad halfway through this mountain road, the rustic white walls of Fluff Koppi Cafe drew my attention. Its Scandinavian-inspired meets Filipino bahay kubo’s cogon roofing seemed to stick out from all the surrounding greens. It’s interesting enough for a stop and much needed nourishment.

    Bike-friendly and Cozy Brewed Specialty Coffee in Pasig

    Being a coffee lover and cafe enthusiast, it’s funny how Brewed Specialty Coffee in Pasig has gone under my radar for months since it opened. It’s a short three kilometer bike ride from our house. It’s located in a commercial center along C. Raymundo where I frequently bike. It took a fellow coffee aficionado’s recommendation to check this place out. And glad I did as it’s a wonderful cafe to add to Pasig’s burgeoning coffee scene.

  • Hiap Yak Tea Shop: Opium coffee anyone?

    Hiap Yak Tea Shop:  Opium coffee anyone?

    There’s a small, non-descript coffee shop named Hiap Yak Tea Shop, tucked somewhere in the alleys of Indian Street in Kuching, Sarawak, where the hot, steaming coffee is still served with a pat of butter. Of course, it makes for a creamy, buttery, if a bit strange, brew but there’s an interesting backstory (or tale, […]

    Blue Wonder Coffee & Bean Roastery

    Happyfoodies have always been Cartimar regulars long before the time when it became the go-to place for pet lovers and owners. Not really venturing far from the pet and plant supplies blocks, Blue Wonder Coffee & Bean Roastery has escaped our attention until recently. It seems like an anomaly of sorts, a warmly-lit, cool stopover […]
