Kopi O

Kopi O is a traditional coffee commonly served in Malaysia and Singapore. It is a strong black coffee served with sugar. Today the coffee beans are roasted with sugar, butter, and oil.

Availability[edit]

This type of coffee can be found all over Malaysia and Singapore, especially in coffee shops. It can be served with ice, which will change its name to Kopi O Peng.

Name[edit]

This drink gets its name from a mix of Teochew, a dialect in both countries, Hokkien and Malay words. Kopi translates to coffee, and O translates to no milk, as Kopi without the O has milk and sugar. Thus, coffee brewers only add sugar into the coffee. Coffee without either would be 'Kopi O Kosong' (Kopi O nothing)
