Tuk-tuk coffee

Tuk-tuk coffee stalls have been getting lots of attention recently. This new way of selling and delivering coffee is the business idea of a Japanese man who wants to help create jobs in Cambodia.

“Before the training I did not dare to look and speak to people. But, when he taught me, I became braver than before,” says Sreyleak, a 22 year-old barista at UEDA Coffee, from Takeo province.

Sreyleak underwent a three-month training program learning how to communicate with customers, promote the service and make coffee based on the customer’s tastes.

She was not required to pay for the three-month training, and received a salary, but paid $10 dollars a month in rent.

UEDA Coffee has 15 tuk-tuk coffee stalls in various locations, selling coffee for around the same price as in a café.

Sreyleak sells coffee rain or shine and then cleans and washes the tuk-tuk. Her training has helped her to become patient, hard working and persistent, she says, adding that she has learnt a lot from UEDA Coffee.

These skill are going to be useful if she is going make her dream come true – which is to save money and open her own café.
