You also have "Kopi Bubuk" (powdered or instant coffee), "Kopi Susu" (coffee with milk), "Kopi Tarik" (more malaysian/singaporean- coffee pulled in a long pour through a sock), "Kopi Tubuk" (coffee made from fine grinds in a tall glass- similar in ways to Turkish coffee...and finally "Kopi Luwak"...needs no explanation!
