Malaysian coffee is known as “kopi” in Malaysia. The local “kopi” is normally served in the local coffee shop or known locally as Kopitiam.

“Kopi” is local  language for coffee and “tiam” is the hokkien word for shop. So Kopitiam is known as Coffee Shop.  The kopitiam  is where the locals go for breakfast, meeting up with friends while enjoying their kopi.

If you watch the old Malaysian or Singapore movies and if there is a scene of a Kopitiam (coffee shop), you will witness the traditional kopitiam culture where the staff/owner of the shop will wear white singlet and stripe pajama bottom, making and serving kopi to their customers on a round marble top. The kopi is the centre of the theme, accompanied with a half boiled egg and thick butter and kaya toast. However, nowadays, you will also be served with nasi lemak as well.

The Malaysian kopi is an acquired taste. The coffee is rather strong in flavour while aromatic. The flavour of the coffee depends on how the coffee beans are treated. For example, some are double roasted and enhanced with extra sugar, salt and margarine, and it can be fast roasting or slow roasting etc.

There are many choices on how you have your coffee, whether it is black, white, without sugar, with sugar or condensed milk etc.

OK, so what kopi would you like? Here are a few examples when ordering kopi in a Malaysian kopitiam:

  • Kopi – Coffee + Condensed milk
  • Peng – Ice
  • Kosong – no sugar and no milk
  • Kao – Thick
  • Pok – Mild
  • C – with evaporated milk
  • O – Black (no milk)

As the variation of coffee you can order:

  • Kopi – Coffee with condensed milk
  • Kopi-O – O means black – black coffee with sugar
  • Kopi – Cham – coffee, tea and condensed milk
  • Kopi-C – Coffee, evaporated milk and sugar etc
  • Kopi Kosong – Coffee – no sugar, no milk
  • Kopi Peng – Peng is ice – Ice coffee with condensed milk

If you Google search on how to order Malaysian coffee, you will be greeted with many terms that you would probably want to write down, just in case.

The way the kopi is prepared is quite unique as well . The uniqueness of kopi preparation is how it is made in a “sock”, or rather a sock-like brewing sac attached to a wire loop. When brewing, the ground kopi is placed inside the sock. Then pour boiling hot water onto the coffee and allow the coffee to drip through.

Guide to preparing Malaysian Kopi:- Depending on how much / thick you want your coffee to be, here is a guide for roughly 1 cup. You don’t need any machine for the coffee, just hot water and a mug.

  • Add 2 teaspoons (heaped) of kopi powder to a coffee pot and fill the pot with boiling water.
  • Let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
  • Sieve the coffee.
  • You can have plain black coffee or you can add sugar, milk or condensed milk.

Enjoy your kopi!
