Not Starbucks, This is a Coffee Shop with the Most Branches in Kalimantan


It turns out that Starbucks is not a coffee shop with the most branches in Kalimantan, but Aming Coffee, a local coffee shop from Pontianak.

The name Aming Coffee may still be unfamiliar to travelers. But for the people of Kalimantan, the name of this coffee shop is very familiar because there are many branches and they are everywhere, more than Starbucks.

At least that’s what detikTravel look in the city of Singkawang. In Singkawang itself, there are 2 Aming Coffee branches, namely at Singkawang Grand Mall and at Singkawang Cultural Center. Meanwhile, Starbucks is only available at Singkawang Grand Mall.

Out of curiosity, detikTravel finally tried Aming Coffee for morning coffee and breakfast. We chose the branch at Singkawang Cultural Center (SCC) at Jalan Yos Sudarso No 76, West Singkawang, Singkawang.

This coffee shop has been open since 06.00 in the morning. Very suitable for those of you who want coffee in the morning. We ordered coffee milk and also Sarikaya toast.

From the waiter on duty, we just found out that the Aming Coffee, which is a branch of SCC, belongs to the son of the Mayor of Singkawang Tjhai Chui Mie. After paying, we sat down at the table.

The Aming Coffee building occupies a fairly large outdoor area. There is also an air-conditioned indoor area for non-smoking travelers. The design itself is very young, perfect for hanging out for a long time with friends.

As soon as our order came, a thin white smoke billowed from the cup. The aroma is also delicious, just like Singkawang coffee in general. In terms of taste, the coffee here is generally not too sour so it is still safe for consumption to accompany breakfast.

Sipping coffee while accompanied by Sarikaya toast is really a special combination. The price is also not too expensive, not as imagined.

This Aming Coffee is indeed legendary. This coffee shop has been around since 1970. Originally from Pontianak, to be precise at Jalan Haji Abbas I No. 157, Pontianak.

Gradually because of the increasing number of consumers, this coffee shop also opened branches in several cities. Until now, Aming Coffee already exists in Jakarta, Bogor, Tangerang, Solo to Yogyakarta.
