Meet champion barista Biboy Plaza (left) and former cook Sammy Lemos (right).

Biboy brews coffee along the road in Lanang after losing his job at a homegrown cafe due to the #pandemic.

Sammy also lost his job last year as a cook at a local restaurant.

Sammy was among Biboy’s first customers when he started his mobile cafe behind SM Lanang sometime in October.

As Sammy became one of his regular customers, he also started to assist Biboy every morning while learning the art of brewing coffee.

Today, Sammy is Biboy’s fulltime assistant — a friendship brewed by coffee.
