If you really like your kopitiam kopi or just like things that look like other things, then this kopi bag will be perfect for you:

Sold by local label WHENIWASFOUR, the bags go for S$19.90 each.

Each bag comes with both pink and green straps that you can use interchangeably, as well as a straw -- just like a real kopi bag.

Transparent PVC and brown PVC are used to make the bag. Its dimensions are 32cm (width) x 42cm (height) x 110cm (length, including handle), allowing it to fit A4-sized documents comfortably.
