Q&A Session with the Owner

1.Tell us more about Bawah Pokok and its products

Bawah Pokok is one of the coffee bars which is located very far from the city. Our specialty is serving freshly brewed coffee that uses 100% arabica beans. We also serve pastries and cake to our customers for them to chill out from evening until late night. This will be the most suitable place for you to give some vibes.


2.What was the hardest part of opening this cafe?

The hardest part of course, comes from getting  some ingredients because of the village area and access logistics that are very poor that makes it difficult for them to reach us.


3.One advice to younger food entrepreneurs that want to start their own.

So my advice is do what you dreamed of. And the most important, do with your passion because passion makes money not just your hard work only, your hard work plus your passion makes more money. Good luck with all your dreams in the future.
