Order Kopi Guide

A helpful guide on how to order Kopi in Singapore and some say Malaysia too.

What is Kopi?

The word kopi is a Malay/Hokkien term for coffee.

Kopi is a dark and full bodied brew, less bitter (and, you could argue, more aromatic) than Vietnamese versions, but with the same subtle caramel-sweetness that comes from canned condensed or evaporated milk.

There is a whole range of Kopi terms and variations. You can customize them to your liking, such as type of milk, sweetness level and coffee strength.
