Alana and William with their gift from Tommy MacNeil. 'May your cup run over with joy, love and laughter, oh, and really fabulous coffee!'

Saturday (26 March) saw the official opening of Kopi Java, a new coffee shop at 87 Cromwell Street, Stornoway. 

The family-run business is owned by husband and wife, William and Alana Poernomo, and the open day saw tens of their family and friends come to give their best wishes, and enjoy some coffee, cake and snacks.

The owners took a moment to thank everyone for coming. Said Alana: "Thank you to our family and friends, and our good customers as well... also a big thank you to God." 

They also welcomed Martin's Memorial minister, Rev. Tommy MacNeil, to the floor to say a few words, including a prayer.

He then presented Alana and William with a gift, as shown above. 

Although Alana is from the island, William was born in Indonesia, on an island called Java, which lends its name to their own special blend of coffee, or 'kopi' as it is known in Indonesia.
