Kenangan Coffee, known as Kopi Kenangan in Indonesia, has opened its first coffee shop in Singapore.
Situated within Raffles City Shopping Centre, the debut was marked by the presence of Kenangan Coffee’s Co-Founders, Edward Tirtanata (Group CEO), and James Prananto (Co-CEO).
In addition to a variety of espresso-based beverages and non-caffeinated options, Kenangan Coffee will present a carefully crafted menu, led by its signature drink, the Kenangan Latte (priced from S$4.90). This exquisite blend combines espresso with Black Aren, a natural sweetener that brings out fruity, caramel-like, and subtly smoky flavor notes.
Patrons can enhance their coffee experience by selecting Bumi Flores Beans, sourced from farms in Bumi Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. These beans are known for their distinct notes of brown sugar, warming spice, and dried orange.
Kenangan Coffee provides its unique mobile application to enhance its customer service, delivering a seamless omni-channel experience. Customers can gain access to exclusive membership perks, including complimentary vouchers and priority access to new products, either by making in-app purchases or by conveniently scanning the QR code at the cashier.
The coffee brand has also introduced the Kenangan Academy, which provides comprehensive training to its baristas in preparation for the opening of its inaugural cafe in Singapore.
“Kenangan Coffee is grown, roasted, and served from Indonesia, to the world. We are ardently committed to spreading Indonesia’s rich coffee culture to every corner of the globe. The profound love that Singaporeans have for coffee, from kopitiams to contemporary cafés, inspired Kenangan Coffee’s leap into this vibrant market. The city’s diversity and its global F&B prominence make our expansion here a pivotal milestone, and we are thrilled to introduce our authentic Indonesian coffee flavors to Singapore,” Edward Tirtanata, Group CEO and Co-Founder of Kenangan Coffe said.
Eduardo Saverin, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of B Capital, one of Kenangan Coffee’s initial investors, noted the remarkable evolution of the business, which has grown from fewer than 200 cafes to over 800.
“The brand’s ambition goes beyond serving coffee—it aims to reposition Indonesian coffee on the world stage as a symbol of quality and heritage. Kopi has a top team. Edward is among the strongest founders in Indonesia. He has filled organizational roles as the company has grown attracting diverse talent from WeChat, Amazon, McKinsey, Burger King and Starbucks,” Saverin said.
Kenangan Coffee has plans to expand its footprint to other Southeast Asian countries before embarking on a global expansion.
