Admittedly, I knew little about this shop before now. There weren’t great pictures on the web, but I have known for quite a while this needed to be a stop on my coffee shop journey. Why you might ask? For no other reason than the fact that one of the pictures that I found contained a Yama cold brew drip tower. Any shop that has one of those must be serious about coffee, whether they use it or not, and deserves a visit.
This shop has a very industrial feel. The floor and walls are concrete, with a lot of metal construction including the chairs and tables (wooden surface). It’s also very low light, which I guess goes with the feel. It’s very much a hole-in-the-wall type place.
They also place rock music exclusively, which is unique, but fits the bill perfectly.
One of the least comfortable places I’ve been to so far. The metal chairs might be perfect for the industrial feel, but did no favors to the one sitting in them. I intended to stay for two to three hours, but left after only an hour and a half.
On the plus side, the AC is superb!
The coffee gains a very high rating for a few reasons. For one, it’s the cheapest I have found in Jogja. I tried Vietnamese drip for the first time with a Java coffee, and it was delicious. They have a great selection of single origins, although the manual brews to pick from are limited.
Brewing Methods: V60, Vietnamese drip, Siphon
Single Origin? Yes
Overall Rating: 3
This shop is just too uncomfortable to be lifted up by the other categories; however, this would be a great place to try different coffees since it’s so cheap. If you plan to stay just long enough to drink your coffee, it would be suitable for that as well.
