Nowadays, we’ve been very lazy to go to coffee shop to capture some photos. That’s all because we thought that our photos will look the same somehow, so we tried to find other places such as dessert houses or gelato corner or something to chill. That day, we wanted to go to this place called Shophaus in Menteng but it was saddening because that place was packed up with hundreds of people and I just couldn’t wait more than 15 minutes. I don’t suggest you go there in the afternoon. You won’t find a place to sit.
To be honest, although I have been living in Muara Karang, I don’t know that this new place exists, seriously. I just happened to pass in front of it after my meal in Pasar Muara Karang at lunch time. Seriously, they need to make the signage of the coffee shop bigger!! I mean who would see that small black signage in front of the dark grayish background. It’s only written “aya” with a tree as a logo. Personally, I was so in love with the design. Simple and artistic. Continue reading “Coffee Aya-Muara Karang, North Jakarta”
I always love Christmas decorations that can be seen everywhere in malls, eatery, or even coffee shop. I wanted to capture the Christmas decorations but I don’t want it to be captured in a mall, but in a coffee shop. After some time researching on my friends’ Instagram stories. I found there was this new coffee shop in Kelapa Gading that looked so spacious and the most important thing, the decorations are amazingly dense. What a delightful news for me. The name is Portafilter. I bet you guys all have heard or seen it, but I’ve just got the chance to visit it this Christmas.

It was a fine Saturday morning, I was wondering where should I go this weekend. Suddenly, my phone vibrated and it’s from my high school Line group. Wondering what that was about, I opened my phone and one of my high school friend asked us all to meet because it’s been months since we last saw each other. We wanted to caught up with the latest news from each other, so we decided to meet up. I suggested a place where I have been wanting to go all this time, but I just didn’t have that opportunity, He.Brews Coffee Corner. As the name suggests, it was located in the corner and it was in line with Dapur Cokelat Bakery so you couldn’t miss that.
We arrived at 10.15 am and the coffee shop was quite deserted. From the first impression, I liked this place so much. The natural lights flew in like no other coffee shop I had visited before, this was totally perfect place for photography. Despite all the sunlights that made its way in, the room temperature was cool; perfect temperature. The coffee shop located on the first floor along with chapter nine boutique.
The second floor and the third floor was occupied with dentist etc. If you want to sit here for hours, come early and choose the sofa because it felt so comfortable sitting there. The place also has this outdoor area for smokers but I didn’t see anyone there, maybe just because of the hot weather.
Besides, I love their table colors and all. So I managed to capture a lot of their tables and chairs. Lol. pardon me.
We ordered two cups of latte (40k), one cup of café mocha (45k), one cup of matcha latte (35k), and one glass of iced honey lemon yakult (45k). It took 10-15 minutes for all the drinks to come but because of the excitement in our conversations, we just didn’t realize we wait for 15 minutes. There was only two baristas when we come and they act as the waiter and cashier, so we pardoned them.
The latte fit my friends’ palate, so she said it was quite good.
My other friend said the café mocha is okay too, no complain.
As for my matcha latte, it was the best one after Kopium. The matcha was thick and the sweetness was perfect, two thumbs up.
The iced honey lemon yakult, nobody knows my love for those three things (honey, lemon, and yakult), and it was served in one freaking glass. I felt I could fly into heaven, okay stop with the nonsense. I felt like the strongest flavor was yakult and I barely could taste the lemon and honey. Despite the ‘absence’ of those two things, it’s a great drink. Perfect sweetness too. I liked it very much and I might as well order it again the next time I come. Not to mention, it came in a such a big tall glass. A great way to refresh my thirst.
I just love to capture the flowers here. By the way, my friend brought some board game and we played until we were tired of laughing and I was sorry for people who came there for solitude just because we were to loud. Haha.
Actually, they served some savory menu too like fish and chips, etc, but we just didn’t want to eat, so maybe on the next visit i will try them. For me, the baristas need to be friendlier, I mean most of baristas nowadays are greeting and saying goodbye to their customers. It’s not an act to respect but it is to show the warmth welcoming atmosphere that every shop needs. Don’t you guys agree with me?

Two days after the November 4th incident, scary news are everywhere through messaging apps. We were encouraged not to go out of the house that day but I heard from my friends that they had been to several areas in my neighborhood just to eat or have fun, hence I realized that everything had been settled and it was a great time to go on a trip again. To anticipate any dangerous events here and there, I was planning a short trip around my neighborhood. Continue reading “Oetara Coffee – Muara Karang, North Jakarta”
I’ve been wanting to visit this place for like months now since it opened a while ago but me and my BFF had been prioritizing other places according to the situations we had on those days. I remembered it was rainy at Kemang and we decided to drive to this place which is not very far from the previous destinations. The place is called Lucky Cat Coffee and Kitchen. I bet everyone of you had known it or maybe had visited it even, but I want to share my experience when I came to this place.
Did you guys know there was this coffee shop that became a sensation in Puri area? It was called Simetri and it was located at a housing complex in Puri. The place was so small and always full packed. Me and my bff went there once earlier this year and left the place just because it was totally full. I saw a lot of pictures in Instagram that made me so excited to visit this place. It’s not only about the coffee but the photogenic breakfast.
It’s been weeks for me since my last cafe hoping with my bff. Sometimes, people like me needs some chillax and me time after almost two weeks of doing quite an exhausting yet satisfying project. After spending some of my time alone, I asked my bff to accompany me to a coffee shop that opened like at the end of 2015 and it located near my house but I never bothered to come by until last Saturday. It’s called Ottoman’s Coffee Brewers. From the outside, the logo and that tosca colored wall looks very stylish and contemporary.
Last Saturday was a sleepy day, I was sleeping like 10 hours then I also took a nap. Anyway, to make myself out of the blue, I called my bestie to join me for afternoon coffee, more like evening coffee though. We went to Baywalk Garden and visited Coffee Kulture. I honestly shocked to see there was a tunnel below the Baywalk Mall. I didn’t know it, i was so late. To find it, you have to take the escalator down from the lobby to the ATM place. Then you’ll see signs how to reach the Baywalk Garden.
That day was a holiday. I remembered the boredom that I felt that morning, it escalated and turned my lazy mode on. I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t want to do anything either, I was in dilemma. Not long after that boredom moment struck me, I remembered that I had promised my bestie that we would go to this coffee shop located at Green Bay Apartment in North Jakarta. My mood was totally turned back like 180 degrees, I was totally excited over that trip instantly.
