Hey Siri, what is Kopi Thyme?
The name Kopi Thyme was chosen as the grandparents of both founding families have owned a Kopitiam. Kopi Thyme is a play on the words of "Kopitiam," a local dialect of coffee shops/cafes in Malaysia and Singapore. Kopitiams serve familiar comfort food in an old school with a quaint ambience and rustic interior.
Hyphenation: ko | pi | tiam
Humans of Kopi Thyme
Kopi Thyme was influenced by the shared joy of two friends (Sara Tang & Tao Yee Lim) experimenting in the kitchen together over weekends to bring cravings to life. This made them recognize that as working individuals, cooking every day was an extremely time-consuming task.
This instant spice mix brings back memories of food back home. This has taken the hardwork and jam packed into this bottle of deliciousness.I have used them to add a kick of flavour into my stir fry, noodles soups and also as marinates. Thank you. Great gift idea. Below is one example of
I bought this for myself because they gift are a better deal- but definitely perfect for gifts! I found Kopi Thyme sauce to be very authentic, they remind me of my childhood in Indonesia. I mainly use them for marinade and soup. I particularly love the Sayur Lodeh as chicken marinade, they remind me of how my mom would make Ayam Goreng Kuning.
Discovered this at a local market recently and finally got around to preparing it. It was easy to make a delicious broth and was just like being back in Malaysia! Will be getting more for sure.
I put a little under 2 tablespoons for a bag of thawed shrimp. I didn't even have much time to marinate them (under an hour) and I put them in the air fryer. UNREAL. So much flavour!! I served it with vermicelli noodles and fresh greens, herbs, cucumber and pickled carrot and it was light, flavourful and definitely a new staple. I will be purchasing more of this jar and others.
Kopi Thyme has substantially upgraded my dinner time. Jarred curries and sauces are usually a let-down but not with Kopi Thyme. The sauces I’ve tried have all the freshness, flavour and aroma that you’d expect from a restaurant and dinner was effortlessly assembled.
My favourite is Kam Heong. Simply heat sauce, add shrimp, put on rice and there you go!.......a delicious meal done in minutes.
I can’t go back to Patak’s or KFI…..I’m hooked on Kopi Thyme and urge everyone to give your dinner time a real boost!!
Good mix of different sauces. Remind me of home made sauce in South East Asia! Love the Lemongrass and Kam Heong!
I purchased a jar at the TO food and drink fest and was really eager to try it. I used it to marinade chicken thighs to put in the grill and it was delicious! Really nice flavour, mild heat, even the kids enjoyed it. I’m sad I only bought one jar but will be ordering more soon!
I highly recommend Kopi Thyme! The sauces are all very flavourful and are a great quick way to add flavour to your dishes.
I also find that Coconut Milk tends to go well with many of the sauces, and can be a quick way to turn the sauces into a curry
In regards to the Lunar New Year box specifically, I think its a very good bang for buck, and the chocolates and candies added in are delicious.
The chopsticks and the chopstick bunny rests are both very cute!
The best sauces for about anything to cook, fish ,meat veggies, I find so many new ways to use these sauces. Really good with baked cod and then finished off with the sauce. I have given this sauce as gifts and have had nothing but great reviews. Keep creating more of these amazing sauces.
It was hard to select what items to try from the Kopi Thyme site. Their YouTube Channel has so many great uses for each bit I finally nailed down my selections with the support from Sara and not only did they arrive very quickly the packaging is EVERYTHING. I’m hooked and my friends will be to who get these as gifts.
Everything was good, I haven’t tried all 4 flavors yet. But the lemongrass we got was great, (we bbqed marinated pork kabobs) . Delivery was quick and packaging was cute. I will be buying some to gift friends!
