Kinyei Café – coffee in Battambang, Cambodia


This café in Battambang is a little bit of a hub for western tourists and expats working for local NGOs, but the coffee is excellent and they have Cambodia’s cappuccino barista champion from 2013!


The review of this coffee shop in Battambang appears in the book of our travels from the UK to Australia via 25 countries.

Crossing Paths, Crossing Borders

This 2016 publication recounts our journey from Yorkshire to Australia via 25 countries. It includes an annex with our 100 top tips for coffee or tea on the road, including this venue.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too..







With Cambodia’s reigning cappuccino barista champion working here, and serving up coffee from the excellent Feel Good coffee roasters in Phnom Penh, we had to try this coffee shop in Battambang, and we were not disappointed. Excellent espresso drinks, so no surprise this place is full of environmental tourists from the organisation next door and expats working for NGOs in the region. Try the khmer coffee if you like – it’s cheap but you’ll soon taste why, and I’d stick to the quality cappuccino from a talented coffee crew..
