Kopiola tries to make the coffee shops' visitors to get to know with each other. The majority of visitors who gathered in Kopiola are people who have a variety of activities and communities.

One of the many advantages of Kopiola, is making the famous cola coffee, which is well known through the Zomato application (an application that covers food and beverage recommendations in each city). The Zomato app, inform that Kopiola has 3.6 rating and is one of the 4 highest ratings in South Jakarta. It certainly can attract more visitors, even visitors outside the city even foreign visitors come to Kopiola because they know it from the Zomato application.
