Coffee and Funky Technology

Digital Walker opens its first Pay-What-You-Want coffee shop

Millennials have been dictating how our stores and surroundings should look. Most stores, shops, restaurants and hotels are turning into contemporary pop-art inspired interiors with a modern industrial vibe. Digital Walker, one of the hippest gadget shops in the country, started with this concept early in 2004, and to date they are innovating yet again by adding coffee and cakes to technological gadgets and introducing what might be a first of its kind in the Metro – Pay-What-You-Want coffee shop.


A new twist to its hip concept store, the first branch of Digital Walker with Recession Coffee is now brewing in Eastwood Mall. A coffee lover's dream and a geek technocrat’s haven, not to mention a perfect ‘yuccie’ hangout place, this branch might just be getting the right kind of market. The coffee shop is in partnership with EDSA Beverage Design Group for the best coffee brew and the delectable confectionery offerings are made by Chef Miko Aspiras of Scout’s Honor.

Pay what… say what? Yes, pay what you want. You get to order a cup of house roasted beans from EDSA Beverage Design Group such as the Panama Carmen Estate, Ethiopia Sidamo Guji Suke Quto, and Kenya Wakulima and decide how much you think it is worth. But of course, depending on what you pay, the funky store tags you with its humor and judges you by how much you put on the table. Pay P50 and you may be mistaken for “someone in between jobs,” but if you pay greater than P200, then you will receive a “marriage proposal” from the team, or perhaps make them water up (with tears).

Visit the first branch of Recession Coffee by Digital Walker from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the 3rd floor of Eastwood Mall, 1880 Eastwood Building, Eastwood Avenue, Eastwood City, Quezon City.
