Kopiko is an Indonesian brand of coffee confectioneries originally produced in Indonesia by Mayora Indah.[1] It is named after the kōpiko coffee bean, found in Hawaii.[2]

Kopiko Candy is currently available in over 80 countries around the world.[3]

There used to be a widely available second variety of the candies which were kosher, supervised by the Kosher Federation in London, though it is no longer being produced. Kosher Kopiko candies can still be found in Israel, however.[4]

Kopiko Candy has also been consumed by astronauts on the International Space Station.[3]

Ingredients[edit]

The product contains extract from real coffee beans. Ingredients include sugar, glucose, vegetable oil (palm oil and/or coconut oil), coffee extract (4.9%), butter, soy lecithin, caramel color, salt, and natural coffee flavor.[4]

Flavors[edit]

Two different flavors are available: original coffee and cappuccino.[5]

Caffeine Content[edit]

The Kopiko UK website advises that "4–5 sweets contain the caffeine equivalent of a cup of espresso" for the original coffee flavor, while the cappuccino flavor sweets contain "around half the caffeine" of the original coffee flavor.[5]

The Caffeine Informer website estimates the caffeine content of the original coffee flavor to be "about 20–25 mg per piece since usually a cup of coffee is referring to 100 mg of caffeine."[6]
