Starbucks Coffee

Coffee was first discovered in the highland of Ethiopia, and was first consumed in the 9th century. From Africa it is spread all over the world, and today this black beverage is one of the most popular drink around. For many people a cup of coffee is their first drink, after getting out of bed from a good night sleep. Because of the undiminishing demand for better coffee, brewing high quality coffee has become a big global business.

City Mall

City Mall opened it’s door to the general public in late 2006, ever since then there are no looking back. Even though City Mall is quite a distance from Kota Kinabalu City, it is well received by KK Lites. Today City Mall is one of the busiest shopping malls outside Kota Kinabalu.

Coffee Culture from Abroad

Not so long ago, when we, KKlites, want to have a good cup of coffee, we would just visit our good old Kopitiams. Then we have only two choices to make, namely Kopi O, which is a cup of hot coffee or Kopi Ping, which is coffee with ice cubes. Both of these are priced under RM 2.00 to this day. Since last year that situation has changed dramaticly with the invasion of the gournmet coffee companies from abroad. Today we have Starbucks Coffee, Coffee Beans and Teas, and San Francisco Cafe, and I believe more cafes will be opening up soon in other new Shopping Malls. Thanks to these cafes we KKlites have to thinkle a bit when ordering our coffee this day, since we have more choices now, not just Kopi O and Kopi Ping.

Popular coffee drink from these cafe joints are Latte, Ice Latte, Mocha Iced Blended, just to name a few. If you need a surprise, go for “Coffee of the day”, and the drinks come with 3 different sizes too.
