On Friday the 15th of November Koi’s Coffee opened its doors for the first time and started serving delicious coffee to the residents, and visitors of Koh Samui.

Koi’s Coffee is located close to the Chaweng Beach side of the Lakeside roundabout, opposite what will be the new Central shopping centre in easy reach of Chaweng Beach.

This neat little coffee shop provides extremely reasonably priced Bon Café coffee and as well as the usual black coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte and Mocha you can enjoy delicious caramel cappuccino, hazelnut latte and their signature beverage milky way mocha and you can have your favorite coffee hot or cold.SAM_0246

If you prefer tea then you won’t miss out either, Koi’s Coffee serve English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey Tea, Jasmine Green Tea and Lemon/Peach and Apple Ice Tea.

Other options include Strawberry/Apple/Raspberry/Blueberry/Ruby Red and Grapefruit Italian soda, coke, fanta and sprite, beer Chang and Beer Singha and water and if you fancy something with a bit of a sting in its tail you can have an authentic Irish Coffee.

Of course no cup of tea or coffee is complete without cake and here you can indulge in delicious carrot cake, chocolate cake, cheese cake, tiramisu and black and white chocolate cake.

As well as being the ideal plSAM_0245ace to enjoy a coffee and a piece of cake this is a great spot to catch up with your friends or work online. Koi’s Coffee has fast, and free, wifi as well as two computers and a print and scan facility.

If you are taking a break from your computer then the outdoor terrace at Koi’s is the ideal spot for an alfresco coffee and a bit of people watching. This busy little corner has plenty to watch. Indoors the atmosphere is cool and calm, with some excellent air conditioning to refresh you after the outdoor heat.

Indoors, Koi and her boyfriend Pete have chosen some nice blue floor tiles with a swirling pattern that remind you of the sea, a suspended ceiling, fresh white walls and a black serving counter. The computer area has high quality swivel computer chairs that are excellent for your back if you are planning on spending anSAM_0248y time sitting on them and some top quality TTB Furniture computer desks in black. All of the cold beverages and the cakes are kept in a VJ Cool fridge and the clock above the reinforced glass frontage bears the logo of the Siam Commercial bank.

Outdoors the attractive terrace has terracotta colored tiles in an Aztec style, one new tile, that used to cover a drain, is not quite the same pattern, but Pete has done his best to paint it in the same style and it certainly does not detract from the wonderful atmosphere created by the imaginative use of plants and the made to measure blue canopy that keeps the sun, or the rain, off the front terrace.

The toilets at Koi’s are as spotlessly clean as the rest of the cafe and can be found behind a ceiling to floor black curtain that blocks off the rooms in the building that are not related to the coffee area and keeps the aircon working efficiently.

SAM_0250The opening party on Friday lasted all day long and Pete and Kio were overwhelmed by the support of their friends who came along to enjoy some great coffee and cakes and the sumptuous spread of food that Koi and Pete put on to celebrate the opening of their new venture. Although Pete did find it rather disappointing that two of his best friends did not bother to turn up, he did not want to mention any names but it was Duffman and Sheeny! However plenty of new faces came along to enjoy the party and without a doubt they will be returning for some more excellent coffee and warm hospitality.

Koi’s coffee is open from 9-30 am until 7pm every day other than Saturday, however they are open today even though it is a Saturday as they only opened yesterday.
