Introducing Kapihappys – a mobile pop up café founded by cycling enthusiast, John Ong. Combining two of his passions, the idea came to him on his usual ride at Genting Peras.
Surrounded by the soulful greenery and away from the city noises, he thought that a hot cup of hand-crafted coffee is just what riders need.
Recently, a twitter user shared his experience at Kapihappys. Yusuff shared that they found the pop up café near KTM Midvalley.
we figured out the location via google street ourselves 😆. it should be somewhere around River of Life nearby KTM Midvalley pic.twitter.com/AEQYv2GdhR— Yusuff Ismadi 🏴 (@iloveyousuff) September 16, 2021
However, the location of Kapihappys varies. Make sure to follow Kapihappy on Facebook to keep up with the cafe’s whereabouts.
Despite having little room for his customers, John makes do with what he has. He sets up a small brewing station accompanied with a simple menu.
The lack of seats creates an opportunity for customers to interact. John posted a video on Facebook showing cyclists mingling around his coffee station.
Of Coffee and Cycling
Apart from serving freshly brewed hand-crafted coffee, John also sells coffee products online.
On the Kapihappy website, you can purchase a variety of coffee beans of various roasts and origins. Furthermore, there brewing equipment are available for purchase.
As a cycling enthusiast, there are even cycling jerseys and caps featured on the website.
Part Time Coffee Maker, Full Time Caregiver
Earlier this month, John shared why he only operates the pop-up café on weekends. He revealed that he is a full time caregiver to his mother who has Alzheimer’s.
The café owner explained that he doesn’t get a lot of sleep because he is responsible for her.
John also encourages his followers to be grateful for what they have and to give back to the communities wherever possible.
When God blesses you financially, don’t raise your standard of living. Raise your standard of giving.
Kita Jaga Kita
As the country gradually revives the economy, more and more businesses are allowed to resume operation. This is a great opportunity to support local businesses.
However, make sure to double mask, sanitise and follow SOP. Take care and stay safe!
