Chinese coffee company and coffeehouse chain Cotti Coffee has opened its first take-away-only store in Sydney, Australia, World Coffee Portal has reported.
The brand, which operates more than 6,000 stores in China, will offer flavoured coffee beverages including Rice Milk and Pampas Blue lattes, along with coconut-infused coffee and Grapefruit Sparking Cold Brew to the Australian market.
The new store joins a vibrant café scene in Sydney’s Cabramatta suburb, known as Little Saigon for its Vietnamese presence.
It will join other operators such as Café Ngon, D&N Coffee, Café Nho, Café Noi, Nha Trang Café and Vy Vy Garden Café.
Cotti Coffee’s arrival is marked by week-long promotional discounts, with 40% reductions on standard drinks such as long blacks and lattes.
Cotti Coffee was founded in October 2022 by Charles Lu and Jenny Qian, both former executives of Luckin Coffee.

Since its international debut in South Korea in August 2023, the chain has expanded into 11 markets.
Significant openings across Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore took place in December 2023.
In August, Cotti also opened an outlet in Kuningan City Mall in the capital city of Jakarta, Indonesia.
The company’s international expansion utilises a mix of single-store and regional franchise models.
Cotti Coffee in Jakarta will be competing with other well-established brands such as Kopi Kenangan, which operates more than 800 outlets in the country, and grab-and-go coffee brand Janji Jiwa.
The coffee chain brand was created by former Luckin Coffee executives Charles Lu and Jenny Qian in October 2023.
