Synopsis: Rico (Johnron Tañada) owns the struggling coffee shop Kape Barako. The shop only has one regular customer, aside from a lady who orders nothing but ice water and leeches off their Internet connection. As a result, Rico is having trouble paying off his mortgage. He now has just two weeks to raise 120,000 pesos to keep the bank from foreclosing on the property. He tries a variety of things to raise the cash, even going as far as considering selling his body. Luckily, one of his baristas Jek (Miko Pasamonte) accidentally stumbles on a solution to the shop’s problems. A prank goes wrong and a special ingredient ends up making their coffee a real hit among a certain section of their clientele. (From Click the City)



5.0         Sampaloc Toc

“The renewal and further development of consciousness cannot occur without the Feast of Fools. It cannot be skipped and dismissing it only adds energy to the autonomous functioning of the shadow — which may be what your soul is just looking for.” (Read full review)

3.5         Pink Fox Patrol

“There are only two ways to watch this movie – react with sheer disgust or just give out a hearty laugh.” (Read full review)

2.0        Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“It would be really difficult to recommend Kape Barako to the general populace given its subject matter (and the places where the movie is being shown. Seriously you don’t want to go in there). But in all seriousness, if we’re really being objective about it, the movie isn’t half bad.” (Read full review)

1.0        Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“This isn’t even a case of being conservative or obstinate. It just isn’t right, and anyone who offers a premise as such, putting it out like it’s vaguely acceptable is ‘not thinking straight’ (no pun intended).” (Read full review)
