The quarantine period has given us coffee fans a whole new list of coffee shops to visit and more unique coffee beverages to try. If you ever find yourself in the neighborhood of Makati City and you need a coffee fix, drop by Papakape.

Papakape is a small cafe founded on the phrase "papa-kape ako" ("I'll make you coffee" or "I'll serve you coffee"). The cafe looks like a tiny glass house and in the morning, it soaks up all the daylight and at night, it's illuminated by fluorescent lights.


The main reason why you should drop by Papakape is their unique drinks. Their signature coffee beverages combine coffee and tea with ginger!

For the mocha drinkers, the Choco Mochaluya (P90) is made with homemade chocolate milk with ginger-infused coffee.


Do you love drinking salabat even if you're not feeling sick? Papakape has leveled up ginger tea like the Blue Ginger Salabat (P70), a ginger tea with blue pea flowers, lemon, and honey, and the Fruity Iced Salamat (P120) which is made with iced oolong-ginger tea with slices of passion fruit, apple, orange, and pineapple.
