Koon Kee's Traditional Range of Penang White Coffee and it's variants:

Koon Kee had a humble beginning in the 1950s.  Over the years, it had grown to be the leading manufacturer of coffee and tea products in Penang.  Koon Kee's success is the result of the quality of its products which are based on the best ingredients and very stringent control of their manufacturing process.

   Koon Kee's famous white coffee is specially blended to suit the taste of coffee lovers in Penang.  The white coffee and its variants are currently being served at about 3,000 outlets in Penang and its adjacent states.  In the 1990s, Koon Kee's coffee was affectionately known as the "Kopi Towkay" - the "Tycoon's Coffee".  It was discovered by a reporter that the then richest man in Penang derived his business inspirations mostly from drinking Koon Kee's coffee.  The tycoon has since passed away, but the coffee shop in Hutton Lane, which the tycoon frequented almost every day, is still open for business and continues to serve the same coffee, in the same traditional manner as it had been, for 3 generations.

   In 2005, Koon Kee launched the premium pack range of its Penang White Coffee, using the best possible ingredients and branded under its own trade name, for visitors to Penang. When you bring home Koon Kee's Penang White Coffee, you not only bring back a superior pack of good coffee, but also bring with you Penang's unique tradition and lifestyle.  You will appreciate morning prayer calls, relaxing with friends after a hard day's work, watching stevedores unloading goods along the famous Penang harbour, or simply chasing after an artistic or business inspiration.    We hope you enjoy our coffee, as much as we have created the essence of Koon Kee, into our products.
