Opened in 1878 as a modest traditional style convenient store (warung)
on Moolen Vhiet Oost in the Colonial Dutch-era Batavia, now Jalan Hayam
Wuruk in Jakarta, Warung Tinggi is now being held by the fifth
generation of its founder, Liauw Tek Soen, and throughout the decades
has developed from warung into a proper shop and coffee shop (Tek Soen
Ho), then into a coffee brand supplying some of Indonesiaâ€™s
best hotels, supermarket, and offices, as well as exporting to
countries such as Japan and The United States. In 2013, 135 years after
establishing itself as the first coffee shop in Jakarta, Warung Tinggiâ€™s
brand is being revamped under OPCO Indonesiaâ€™s management, setting up
coffee houses serving coffee with Indonesian-Dutch-Chinese influenced
food, as well as penetrating into modern retail environments while
retaining its value as an Indonesian heritage brand.
Excellencies all the way!
