Sourcing from Sumatra may seem none too special for a coffee shop. The artwork, however — a rendering of the world's most expansive archipelago, albeit compressed and naively drawn — pegs this as an Indonesian-owned operation. Kopi Kopi (literally "coffee coffee") employs fair-trade beans from back home that are roasted in New York.
The menu features not only coffee and tea, as well as beer and wine, but also Indonesian drinks such as bandrek (first photo below, $4.50). Its peppy blend of ginger, clove, cayenne, and cinnamon, energized by palm sugar, evokes the sarabba at the now-closed Pinisi Cafe. Mine was prepared with water; for a rounder, less-sharp flavor, have yours made with steamed milk instead. Milk is the default for the ginger brew (second photo below, $5), which resembles the bandrek minus the clove, cayenne, and cinnamon.
Also shown, from the countertop pastry display: wingko Babat ($3.50), a Javanese cake made from glutinous rice, coconut, and coconut milk. Mine was still warm.
