Kopi Lethok - Coffee and Coconut Milk

Coffee, check. Coconut milk, check. Sugar, check. Kopi lethok is a beverage made from this three ingredients from Ngawi, a city in East Java. Interestingly, this simpler recipe is not as famous as bajigur, pretty much the same recipe plus ginger, pandan leaves, cinnamon, and palm sugar. For most people, I would bet that brewing a cup of kopi lethok will be a fast and simple affair compared to scrounging up all the ingredients for a bajigur. But for those interested, I will definitely feature a bajigur recipe in future post, so stay tuned :) In the meantime, I am writing this while sipping a cup of freshly brewed kopi lethok and savoring the cloudy Jakarta sky. ♥

    Simple but surely delicious :) I'm fond of coffee and coconut milk is even more tasty than whipped cream in my opinion. By the way, my name is Anita, too! :)
