Tenom – The Coffee Capital of Sabah
Tenom is considered the coffee capital of Sabah. But Fatt Choi Coffee is not the only player in their local industry. Tenom is also home to Yit Foh Coffee 丹南益和咖啡, the oldest coffee factory in Sabah that processes locally-planted pure Robusta coffee beans. It is also the only coffee factory in Sabah that roasts coffee beans using wood fire to bring out its full aroma. Alex Yong, the second-generation owner of Yit Foh Coffee, believes the best marketing strategy is to produce the best coffee that locals love. So whenever you get the chance, remember to get a cuppa of Tenom coffee!
