(Long Island, N.Y.) Members of the press and Manhattan’s social elite were invited to the Kopi Kopi Coffee Lounge Restaurant Opening on April 18th. Named after the ethnic Indonesian word for coffee, Kopi Kopi NYC is a Specialty Coffee Lounge and Restaurant with a unique blend of savory Indonesian, ambiance, and a carefully curated selection of artisanal coffees.
During our interview the Owner Elizabeth Lapadula revealed that Kopi Kopi is the very first Indonesian Coffee Lounge in the United States that brews and craft each cup with soul and dedication to their Indonesian origins. Cultures and coffee grow and intertwine among Indonesia’s eighteen thousand islands creating a delightful blend of aroma and flavor that Kopi Kopi wants their customers to experience. Kopi Kopi Coffee Lounge delivers the finest coffees: sourced from Indonesia and roasted in New York City. Kopi Kopi Coffee Lounge is among the first cafes in New Manhattan to utilize the award-winning Alpha Dominche Steampunk machine.
This machine is a revolutionary new way to brew. Kopi Kopi Coffee Lounge deems it their responsibility to use only fair trade beans and to treat every cup with respect and integrity ensuring to honor both the farmer who harvests it and the customer who drinks it. Quality is their priority. Each sip will give the customer the sensation that they have been transported to an exotic land. Everyone should give their palate a treat and indulge in every drop of this black gold they call Kopi Kopi.
Kopi Kopi NYC cafe, centrally located in the West Village, is a haven for coffee-enthusiasts. Very distinct from your generic coffee chain. Kopi Kopi opened their doors with the intention of offering a space for their neighborhood community to enjoy premium coffee and food in an eclectic and relaxed ambiance. From the moment patrons enter they will be wowed by the vast but cozy space highlighted with pressed tin, high ceilings, a majestic upside-down chandelier, exposed brick and accented with authentic Indonesian artwork.
The eclectic outdoor garden is their pièce de résistance. Kopi NYC is a place to enjoy your daily dose of caffeine. An ideal venue to eat and drink while engaging in exciting conversation, mingling with friends, going on a date, or doing your work. In line with their community-oriented vision, Kopi Kopi employs only the friendliest staff. Come visit and join the Kopi NYC family.

The Pet Philanthropy Circle supports and raises revenue for qualified animal causes with the Pet Hero Awards. The organization depends on donations to enhance the quality of animal lives by promoting greater public awareness of their welfare and the causes that promise protection.
“It’s all about animals – yours, ours, and everyone else’s. When it comes to animal welfare, we must be joined with a collaborative spirit. The purpose of Pet Philanthropy Circle & PetFest is to encourage all organizations to work together. All life is precious. Our goal is to encourage others to consider themselves pet trustees rather than owners, fostering responsibility for our pets’ care beyond our own lifetimes. We owe it to the earth’s well-being to protect and provide for animals, especially those we have trained to depend on humans for emotional and physical support. We have a sacred trust to protect and help them” revealed Jewel Morris, Founder.
By supporting these events, you will be joining our alliance of organizations and individuals who are making a difference in animal care. For more information on specific benefits associated with sponsorship or the Pet Resource Book please contact us (631) 237 1365.
