Coffee is Tenom's most famous product, freshly grown from the hills that line the landscape and processed in traditional wooden factories that emit strong aroma and smoke. Here, the two largest producers of Tenom coffee are Yit Foh and Fatt Choi, both family businesses that have established brands.
Yit Foh is the older of the two, but smaller in scale with only a little shop open to visitors located out of town towards Sipitang on the main road. Fatt Choi, on the other hand, is nestled at the heart of town and features a boutique cafe with tasty cakes alongside its coffee. They also feature accommodation and tour packages at their coffee plantation hidden in the hills around Tenom.
