No vacation to Singkawang is complete if you haven’t tasted the delicious coffee. Try coffee at Tiam Rusen Coffee which is very legendary and the building is iconic!

Standing right across from the Tri Dharma Bumi Raya Vihara, makes Tiam Rusen Coffee a very strategic location for tourists. No wonder this coffee shop is always busy, from morning to night.

detikTravel visited Tiam Rusen Coffee a few days before the Chinese New Year celebration in Singkawang. Morning is the right time to come here. A cup of coffee from Tiam Rusen’s flagship coffee will make you more enthusiastic about going through the day.

I ordered warm milk coffee. Deftly, the shop assistant prepared my order. The ceramic glass that will be used is soaked first in a pot of hot water.

A moment later, the jet black liquid had moved from the filter into the glass that had been sterilized earlier. Don’t forget to add sweet thick and a spoonful of sugar to it. Be a cup of delicious milk coffee that I will enjoy that morning.

As a friend to drinking coffee, we ordered steamed mantau which is eaten by dipping it into a thick sweet sauce. Oh, it’s delicious!

Tiam Rusen Coffee is the oldest coffee shop in Singkawang. This shop building has existed since 1955. Previously, this two-story building was not intended for a coffee shop, but an inn called the Rusen Inn.
