Penang's Traditional Kopi-O

The original & traditional style of Penang's "black coffee/americano" aka Kopi-O.

Coffee shops are called Kopi-Tiam because of this Kopi-O drink! It is also a tradition for us to follow our parents/grandparents to coffee shops and they will pour a bit of their drink on the saucer for us when we were young. 2 reasons - to share and to cool it down!

Nowadays, we can see many new higher class 'kopi tiams' evolving around Penang & KL serving coffee with ambiance that is sure to bring u back to the good-old days!
