JAKARTA -- On a typical afternoon, motorcycle drivers wearing green jackets flock to a tiny coffee shop called Tuku in south Jakarta. They will wait in line -- sometimes for more than an hour. As soon as they receive their order, they jump back onto their bikes and drive off to deliver cups of the shop's ice coffee to their waiting customers. A staffer at the shop said the delivery people began flooding in about a year ago, making the store so popular that it had to stop taking orders after 3 p.m.
