Typica Coffee is one of the most successful and well-known minimalist cafes in Rizal. You may have known about how they started from their humble beginnings because they were featured numerous times on TV and in online articles. I believe the founder was a former Starbucks barista who started to sell coffee products online during the pandemic until he was able to save and reconstruct a sari-sari store to start the flagship branch in Taytay. The pictures below were from my first visit last March 2021; Typica Coffee was still a roadside cafe then.
I’m not sure how much of the rumor that the founder started with as little as ten thousand pesos as his startup capital should I believe, but yeah, that became a topic among us coffee enthusiasts and cafe hunters.
Now Typica Coffee has branches in Antipolo and Laguna. More importantly, their flagship store in Taytay can now accommodate more customers, hence this blog.
How to Go to Typica Coffee
From any point in Ortigas Extension, ride a jeepney going to Singer (landmark is a grocery store with a Tropical Hut). From there, there are tricycles that can lead you to Typica Coffee. As of November 2022, fare per ride is PHP 25.00.
What to Expect in Typica Coffee
Getting inspiration from the simple and minimalist coffee shops in Japan, their cafe still maintains the branding even though they have expanded. White walls, brown accents, and minimal decorations welcomed me as I entered the cafe.
Their alfresco dining area had room for a number of people. There was a part that looked like a zen garden, wherein pebbles filled the ground and a young tree stood at the middle. Unlike the interior dining area, the walls had art, albeit minimal.
What to Eat in Typica Coffee
I am a huge fan of their pastries, I must say, particularly their vegan dark choco cookies and charcoal cookies. Here are two pictures of the many, many deliveries as proof.
Anyway, in the cafe, I got the same products I would usually order online: aglio olio (PHP 130), vegan choco chip cookie (PHP 70), and hot dark mocha latte (PHP 120). Since I was there until night, I also got their classic baked macaroni (PHP 150). They serve the yummiest pastries and pasta, I swear.
