OUR ORIGINS

We are immensely proud of our 70 year heritage, and

have no intentions of slowing down. A historic brand

doesn't reflect upon a bygone era, but instead

serves as proof, of a commitment to deliver

the same level of excellence as our

founder did when it all began...

Koon Kee About Us Foundation 2.jpg

Humble Beginnings

Our founder, Choot Ching Khoon, at the tender age of eleven,

desperate to escape his war torn home of Hainan, found himself

traversing the high seas to end up here in the bustling entrepôt

that is Penang. Years of hardship and labour did not stop this boy's ambition, and he eventually found himself running a coffee

factory all by his lonesome.

Going the Extra Mile

Getting on a $10 bicycle (that hangs proudly in our factory),

Choot would cycle around the island servicing customers,

all after a laborious morning of roasting coffee to perfection.

And it's that grit that helped solidify the cornerstone in which

Koon Kee was built upon, a spirit of excellence.

A Spirit of Excellence

We intentionally spend on nothing but the best raw materials,

a reflection of the high standards our founder hold us accountable

for. As each of our offerings have been carefully curated, building

upon feedback received from our most important stakeholder, you.

We Care

And if you ever wondered why the unique packaging? It's because we unanimously decided to ditch the plastic in favour of unbleached paper. Our way of saying to the environment "We care."

Here to Stay

Striving to keep that same spirit alive, we rebranded ourselves

under our trade name "Koon Kee", as a salute to our heritage,

whilst we usher in a new era. Bringing forth the essence of

excellence far beyond the borders of Penang.

The Human Touch

While advancements have been made, the fundamentals remain

the same. Our maestros and their protégés still conduct the first

(roasting) and last (packing) steps of the process, ensuring

timeless excellence.

to the timeless spirit of excellence that goes into each cup. An

ode to that little boy's dream, the fruits of his enduring passion,

and the best damn thing that you can ever ask for delivered to

you, time and time again…
