Our caffeine so-called “addiction” brought us to yet another coffee shop in Jakarta. This time in the Kuningan area of South Jakarta. The spot is quite tricky to get to for non-local people. It occupies a one-story building in a nice boarding complex called Suites of Seven.
Once you got there, the building security will open the steel gate and let you in. The parking space was readily available as there were quite a few vacant space. Here is the front view of this relatively small coffee shop. It was nicely designed with leaves vines hanging by the entrance door and glass windows.
We love all decoration details they adorned this coffee lair with. It emitted artsy elegance filled with sophistication. We enjoyed the aura of seclusion this spot provided. As most occupants of this boarding complex are expats who work for tech companies, this coffee shop sure present itself as the much needed working and relaxing space for them.
These glass stairs led to the 2nd floor for an outdoor seating section or can also be interpreted as smoking section.
We tried its signature Honey Latte and a regular cup of Cappuccino. I love the balanced-note from the cappuccino. However, the blend of honey with latte did not work the magic that it was supposed to relinquish on me. I felt that the sweetness and the unique note from the honey was not in harmony. It might just be my own personal taste preference though. A softer honey note might be more suitable for me.
As time passes, I have spent my last hours of the afternoon cozying up in the corner of this coffee shop. The sophisticated ambiance, good coffee and personal attention to service from the people behind the bar were several plus points that I noticed from the visit.
