The popular Indonesian coffee chain has landed on our shores! Kenangan Coffee brings to the table affordable drinks with pastries lining their glass cabinet. The brand was founded in 2017 and aimed to spread the founders' passion for Indonesian coffee to be well-renowned. With more than 30 million cups sold in a year, 800 stores in Indonesia and 14 stores (and growing!) in Malaysia, their coffee is definitely going to be a big hit in Southeast Asia.
(PS: Jay-Z and Serena Williams have invested in this coffee chain too!)
With locations in Raffles City and Changi Airport T2, it's an excellent option for a pick-me-up in the early mornings or late nights when waiting for a late-night flight.
Their cup sizes range from small, regular to large. They also offer add-ons and substitutions such as espresso shots or changing the type of milk to other lactose-free or nut milk substitutes. These are all priced at $0.80 for each substitution or add-on.
They will be serving their signature Kenangan Latte ($4.90) in Singapore, which is a blend of espresso and Black Aren. What is Black Aren? Well, it's a sugar derived from palm trees which is in abundance in Southeast Asia. It's essentially palm sugar and used in many cuisines in this region. It doesn't contain any additives due to how sweet the Black Aren already is.
Other drinks that are on the menu are the Americano ($3.90) as well as the Cappucino ($4.50). If you're not up for any adventurous coffee choices in the early mornings, you can grab a good ol' joe instead. They also offer a variety of lattes, such as the Creamy Latte ($4.90), Hazelnut Latte ($4.90) and Vanilla Latte ($4.90). Or try out their Iced Avocado Coffee ($6.50) that blends the fruit into a creamy espresso delight!
There is an option to substitute the coffee beans to the Bumi Flores Beans from East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia in the mountains. These coffee beans will give a low acidity but rich coffee flavour that gives notes of chocolate, caramel and floral which is perfect for those who prefer light coffee.
Despite its name, the store will also sell non-caffeinated beverages as well such as the Ice Shaken Strawberry Tea ($4.50).
They also offer a variety of pastries such as different puffs like Curry Puff ($3.70) and Salted Caramel Cruffin ($4.20) which is a blend of croissants and muffins.
Kenangan Coffee will leave you with kenangan(s) over coffee [memories in Indonesian/Malay], which is what it's called in Indonesia: Kopi Kenangan!
