Coffee Culture from Abroad

Not so long ago, when we, KKlites, want to have a good cup of coffee, we would just visit our good old Kopitiams. Then we have only two choices to make, namely Kopi O, which is a cup of hot coffee or Kopi Ping, which is coffee with ice cubes. Both of these are priced under RM 2.00 to this day. Since last year that situation has changed dramaticly with the invasion of the gournmet coffee companies from abroad. Today we have Starbucks Coffee, Coffee Beans and Teas, and San Francisco Cafe, and I believe more cafes will be opening up soon in other new Shopping Malls. Thanks to these cafes we KKlites have to thinkle a bit when ordering our coffee this day, since we have more choices now, not just Kopi O and Kopi Ping.
