Not Just Coffee – literally

Most of the time, coffee is all we need to get our day started. But when you need something stronger than coffee, it’s time to run to Not Just Coffee in Quezon City.

This coffee shop at The Pop Up Katipunan serves coffee with a boost – or, rather, booze – perfect for days you’d rather not deal with things but just have to.

Liquor-infused coffee

The cafe offers cold brew-based coffee with a kick from your favorite alcoholic drinks.

If you’re into the classic coffee types, go for their Rum Americano or Creamy Vodka Latte. For flavored options, there are also Peppermint Tequila Latte and the cafe’s best sellers, Caramel Brandy Machiatto and Mocha Whiskey Latte.

These liquor-infused coffee drinks are served iced but you can also have Caramel Brandy Machiato, Mocha Whiskey Latte, and Peppermint Tequila Latte ice-blended.

The coffee shop’s alcoholic coffee offerings start at P149 (~USD2.69) and come in two sizes, tall and grande.

If you just need your regular coffee order, however, the cafe also offers Americano, Caramel Macchiato, Creamy Latte, and Mocha Latte.

Bread and pastries to go with your drink

Due to the food park set-up at The Pop Up Katipunan, the coffee shop operates in a container van. Cafegoers, then, can enjoy their drinks in an open-air space, seated at one of the tables in front of their stall.

You also get to visit the place with your fur baby, in case you need an extra source of energy on top of a cup of spiked coffee.

Boozy coffee offerings at The Pop Up Katipunan
